LAX - That would be Lacrosse

Well, here it is...Monday again.  The weekend went by so quickly.  We had spring storms on Saturday that caused tornadoes in some areas and were actually all around us but never hit us - Yea!  And they were all during the day, so I was able to sleep through the night.

The one standing sideways between Number 25 and 24 is mine.
Our weekend started with Number One Son's Lacrosse game against one of his schools biggest rivals.  The game was tough and the boys played well but unfortunately, they weren't quite able to pull out a win.  I was a little disappointed.  The opposing team was actually the High School I graduated from.  I have to say that I was a bit embarrassed to admit that I went to school there.  Somewhere along the way they forgot to teach good sportsmanship.  These boys played the game in a "win at all costs" fashion and it was quite ugly.  And the spectators weren't much better and in some cases these were the adults!  I know that some of the behavior that was on display would have gotten players benched and spectators would have been asked to leave when I was in school.  It was a bit disheartening. I hate that this is example that has been set.  Is it any wonder that pro athletes think that they can get away with anything when this is what they've been taught.

Ahem...OK.  The soapbox has been put away.  Sorry about that.  I just got a little fired up. On to happier topics....

Projects are moving along quite well.  I just need to take some pictures.  The mystery swirly project is almost done.  One more round for the border and then blocking.  I have a pretty good feeling that I'm going to finish all my projects and then block them all at once.  Then I'll just have one huge TA-DA post. Oh! That would be so pretty.

Sorry for the short post, but lunch time is over and it's time to get back to work.  I hope everyone has a wonderful week and I hope to be back soon!


  1. I'm looking forward to your ta-dah! Fun picture of the boys in a huddle. Sorry you were disappointed in what went on at the game.

    Hugs, Teresa

  3. My eldest went to 'Little Aths' on a Saturday morning and I loved it because they were encouraged to better themselves not to be better than everyone else...if you know what I mean?
