Movin' on up

I emailed the golf coach before the girls went to camp. I explained that the brunette twin wanted to try out for the golf team, but would miss the first few practices. The coach graciously emailed that the brunette twin should join the team for practice when she was back in town.

We arrived at practice while the coach was unloaded her trunk. We talked for a few minutes before leaving the brunette twin to meet her team.

When she came home, the brunette twin was excited. The coach told her that she would be starting in all the JV matches this year. It wasn't a complete surprise given that the brunette twin had been taking golf lessons for years. We knew she was pretty good. I pulled up the JV schedule and wrote everything on my desk calendar. 

The next morning the brunette twin came home from a team meeting and said, "Coach gave me a varsity golf bag. I think I'm on the varsity team." It turns out that the coach was impressed with her practice skills and decided to put her on the varsity golf team. 

Daddy looked at the varsity schedule and started laughing. The brunette twin went from playing nine holes twice a week to playing 18 holes three times a week. For her first Saturday match, she needed to be at school at 5:20 a.m. No, that's not a typo. Her arrival time was 5:20 a.m.

We were proud and excited for her. The brunette twin was nervous and excited. All of us were dreading the 5:20 a.m. arrival time.
