It was only a month ago that I cleaned up my classroom and headed down to Richmond for Mary's first lacrosse tournament of the summer. In that short amount of time I've watched Mary and her team play in two more tournaments. My sister and I have driven over 1800 miles lugging coolers, lacrosse sticks, bag chairs, sunscreen, bug spray, snacks and so many water bottles along with us. I have heard the songs of summer- Rude by Magic, Wiggle by Jason Derulo, and Fancy by Iggy Azalea. I still can't identify the names of each artist when their voices come out of the radio but I'm getting a little better. On the lacrosse front I've watched Mary and her team win one game after another for a record of 12-0 this summer. Today I watched as they came back from a score of 7 - 3 at halftime to win their final game of the summer 10-9. It's been fun watching this group of high school juniors hang out between games like your average group of 16 year-old girls would. They talk, text and laugh constantly. There appears to be no drama on this team and as far as I can tell the girls really enjoy their time on the sidelines between games. All that fun definitely works in their favor on the field. It's been a great tournament season for the girls. I look forward to seeing them play again in Orlando come November.
