May is also time for Summer lacrosse to begin! Scott (along with many others) are coaching BEAST girls lacrosse again this Summer. They had a couple mini tournament days to get a warm up for June and July's bigger tournaments. Beast is made up of 11 different high schools and several middle schools in our area. Our first tournament we had 6 high school teams and 2 middle school teams competing!

Chloe's Team Picture
Girls Hugging after each goal! Chloe's squished in the middle
Day 1They played against Philly, Kentucky and Indiana. They only beat Indiana, but it was sure nice to leave the field on a WIN! Throughout the weekend Chloe had 4 or 5 goals and a few assists. She played really well and was very happy with herself. And a bit sore!
After all the games we were able to go watch an Exhibition game Team USA vs Team Canada
Only one game today against DC Metro. Funny talking with the other parents they are from area's that we lived in when we were in VA. Small world meeting up to play in CT!

We stopped at a park we saw off the interstate to stretch our legs and take some pictures
Some tree's there were like massive dandelions there was FUZZY puffs all over the ground and in the air... Chloe and I gathered some up and had a 'snowball fight'!
Time to go home...all smiles
