Dugout Gloom 1

Dugout Gloom 1, originally uploaded by DaveWilsonPhotography.

I remember as a kid of about 12 having a meltdown crisis one night when I discovered I was triple-booked for activities (Scouts, Aeromodeling Club, swimming, etc, etc,). At the time, however, I didn’t really appreciate that my plethora of after-school activities were causing at least as much of a headache to my parents who had to spend pretty much every evening running kids (myself and my 2 brothers) around the town to all these events. That has, however, now thoroughly changed.

Both the boys are in sports this season – Drew in baseball (the picture shows one of his friends undergoing his own little dugout crisis during last week’s game) and Cameron in soccer. They both have games and practice sessions each week and these are often at the same time but at different sport fields. As a result, Nikki and I spend a great deal of time driving back and forward between our home and Dripping Springs then sitting on the sidelines gabbing with the other parents while the boys play.

Don’t get me wrong – I’m not complaining. I actually rather enjoy attending the games and have got to know some of the parents pretty well through our season-long sideline chats. I do, however, have a very much better sense of how my folks must have felt when I had the audacity to complain about being overbooked as a kid!
