Last night was the athletic sports banquet for the fall sports. It's still called a banquet even though there's no food. At all. When my older 2 went through the system, it was called a banquet but we all brought desserts. Now.... nothing. But, I digress....
All the sports meet together and the big awards are given and then the group breaks up and each sport has it's own awards ceremony.
We (DD#2's field hockey team) were there the longest. By a long shot.
How long, you ask?
Long enough to knit 6 inches of a hat. I could've knit another 20 minutes worth, but want to add a green stripe so I stopped. And then I got fidgetty.
Don't get me wrong. The team is great on bonding and "there is no I in team" and playing together and making relationships and developing as a person in addition to all the normal sport stuff.
But 2.5 hours to recognize all of that?
Next time I'll bring the green yarn.
(P.S. DD#2 got the Offensive MVP award for JV, so I guess I can handle long awards ceremonies.)
