This is Christian's team, he's the one to the right. Tonight is his banquet at the Red Sox game. That's a coach pitch game going on in the background, ages 6-7 (Braden and Dalton's league).
Well it finally happened. It was bound to one of these days. I had one of those crazy days, getting kids here and there. Christian had his first school football practice after school yesterday. It ended at 5, which gave me plenty of time to get home and pick up Braden and Dalton for their 6:00 game. I knew where their game was, I even told my brother where it was so he could follow us or meet us there. Well, somewhere in the day I forgot that their game was in Buchanan and started thinking it was at their school. Buchanan is about a half hour away, vs. their school less than 10 minutes. So I brought Christian home and hung around a little bit since it was still "early" and double checked the calendar for the game location, yep, Greenfield, check! So the boys and I head out to Greenfield for their game but notice we are the only ones from their team that is there. There's other teams but no Cardinals. I called the one phone number I have in the car, one of the moms from their team. No answer, I call over and over, no answer...so we head home. I'm feeling so upset with myself wondering how I messed this up. Look at the calendar when I walked in the door and right there in black and white it says "Braden and Dalton 6:00 Buchanan". Then I noticed the next week is scheduled for Greenfield. I totally screwed that one up! By then it was too late to even try to get to the game. Well, I've always been scared this would happen eventually, but I've done pretty good till now considering all the games we've had over the years,lol.
