Who's idea was it??

I am slllooowwwly thawing out. Today was the first junior high track meet. It started off warm enough--didn't even need a jacket. By the time Matt's last event (which was the LAST event) was over, I was in a winter coat, with a blanket, thinking about getting out another, and wishing I had brought my gloves from the car. The thermometer in my car indicated that it had really only fallen about 4 or 5 degrees over the course of a couple of hours--I think I need to get that thing checked next oil change. Matt has never run track--he's a baseball kind of kid. But in order to qualify for the school scholar athlete award, the student has to participate in 3 sports, so I encouraged him to give it a go since his baseball schedule is more accommodating this year. I forgot how cold it is in the evenings in the spring! He's having fun though. I'm getting gray hairs, which could be because I'm getting older every day, but is more likely from trying to figure out how I'm going to get Matt to and from all of his activities (baseball, track, summer basketball, football conditioning, church youth group). Oh, and throw in Craig's events as well (but at least he can drive himself--once we finally get him a car). In the meantime, I'm looking for a battery operated space heater.... Who's idea was this again??

oooo I remember those days where we kept the sleeping bags in the trunk!

Hopefully the concession stands are selling hot cocoa :)

It was too cold to find out yesterday. I'm sure for the tourney this weekend, the stand will be open. Maybe they'll be selling waders for all the rain we're supposed to get. Ugh again.

You should totally make a Cabella's/Dick's run and stock up on hand/tushy warmers. :)

I actually had foot warmer inserts with me, but by the time I got cold enough to need them, it would have been a waste. I'm thinking thermacare heat wraps as well--kill 2 birds with one stone!
