Coincidence? I think not.

There is a conspiracy to drive me crazy. For the second year in a row, the opening day of the spring soccer season coincides with John's annual trip to the National Association of Broadcasters convention in Las Vegas. And yes, for the second year in a row, Rachel and William both have soccer games at THE EXACT SAME TIME, at locations across town from each other.

What is up with this? Games are scheduled from 8:30 am until 2:45 pm. Do they deliberately stack the 1st grade and 5th grade games at the same time, figuring nobody has two children those ages? They seemed to do the same thing last year with kindergarten and 4th - we had a ton of games that overlapped.

I suppose the good news is that we'll get soccer done with early in the day. Both games are at 8:30 am. But I am again going to have to find a ride for Rachel, and miss her first game. Sigh...

I'm sure they check John's schedule when they schedule the games, just so they can make it the most inconvenient!

Don't you hate that?! We had that problem in the fall. Both of my kids will soon have softball and t-ball games at the same time, but at least they're at the same ballpark! That across town stuff is for the birds!
