We got home around 11:15pm because right after his age group awards we were able to high tail it out of there. It was really back and forth about school today and I ultimately let him decide. At the last minute he decided to go for very grown up reasons and I am very proud of him. As for the meet yesterday, he looked good but his scores didn't reflect it. He got lower scores last night than last week but he isn't as upset about it because he was in a great mood, my night owl was in his element. He did receive one medal which he admitted did make him feel better also. So since it was a last minute decision to go to school in the pouring rain we got there just at 9 am when school starts and there were still parents dropping off their kids so he wasn't all that late but it leaves you with a hood covered face for a picture.

Aidan didn't have the best meet and he is pretty upset about it. Last year at this meet as a level 4 he cleaned up on medals. This year he didn't get any. He understands though that even if he had all his top scores today he still would not have earned a medal in every event because the competition was very tough this year.

Let's try this again for the 5th time. I have no idea why the picture keeps not showing. I'm trying from my computer now instead of my cell phone.
Wow it's the 100th day of school already, time really flies!
Aidan has a doctor appointment before school today so he will just be a little late. Last night I got the tentative lacrosse game schedule for this season. He has 12 games and they might be adding a tournament in June! They don't know the practice schedule yet but march is always all over the place because of field unavailability because of the snow and then just being muddy. The kids aren't even allowed on the main fields until after spring break. This year is very exciting because they finally get real uniforms and not just pinnies. I also have to get him a new stick so it's regulation. Two years ago they cut his stick a little short to help him learn handling skills better. All his pads and his helmet are still good.
There is also no school monday or tuesday for president's weekend. They ended up keeping the tuesday as a vacation day because apparently people flipped out and the changed it to adding a day on to the end of the school year to make up for the extra snow day. If they use anymore they will start taking away from spring break.

Aidan had a great practice last night. He says his flares are really opening up and he might do them at the meet on sunday. The last time he did them the judge said they were not big enough so he didn't get he bonus points for them. The meet before that he tried them and he fell off and the deduction is more than the bonus he gets for doing extra circles and the flares. Aidan is really looking forward to this meet because it is a big invitational where they are awarded medals and the meet takes place at Temple university in Philadelphia. After the meet we might go back to the Hard Rock Cafe, Aidan's favorite restaurant. We went last year for dinner the night before the meet. I think Aidan's goal in life is to eat at as many Hard Rock's as he can, so far he has been to three: Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and New York City. Those are the only ones within driving distance.

The weather was very nice yesterday but today it is back to bitter cold. I got Aidan's report card yesterday, well, I actually should have had it on friday but someone forgot to get it out of his backpack. Aidan has all A's and B's and is doing fantastic as always. Today is a day off for Aidan, nothing to do at all!

Wow my day off actually falls on a day when Aidan actually has school. The past few weeks it just so happened that on his snow days I was off. Tomorrow is meet day! He also has a meet the following weekend and the one after that. February is a busy month!

There is no school today due to the major ice out there. This means that they will have school on february 22nd. At least they are not adding on to the school year yet. Today is a busy day, Aidan is getting his first and hopefully last filling today. It is on a baby tooth so hopefully he has learned his lesson, he already is being a better brusher.
