Madeline decided she wanted to try a new sport, so instead of our regular spring soccer season, she decided to try girls Lacrosse. This was new to all of us, so it has been a season full of learning. It has been fun to watch her play lacrosse and she has really enjoyed it. She plays both defense and offense and is quite good at scoring. Since the girls do not wear protective gear (with the exception of the mouth guard and eye protection) there is no contact between girls. There is a lot of running, throwing, catching and scoring. The scores are usually pretty high (10-11 or 13-10). They play 2 halves and the games are about 1 hour long. Tonight is her last game of the season. It has been very time consuming, as she does lacrosse 3 nights per week in a neighboring town, but we survived and she enjoyed herself.
