She just made it to Youth Nationals down in Florida. I'm thinking, Ok we'll go down for a long weekend. But no, it's 4 days, starts on Thursday. And, everyone is going down on Tuesday for 2 days of warm-up. So now it's a 6 day trip, in June, in Florida. I suggest renting an AirBNB house for us. Can cook, wash all the rowing gear, separate bedrooms, more space. Can get one 2 blocks from the beach for the same price as the hotel. Nope, that won't be any fun. All the other kids are staying at a hotel. It will be so much more fun being at the hotel, I'm told. This is getting to be more expensive than an Ironman.
My daughter just switched from swimming to rowing last year. As a parent, I always thought a swim meet was the most boring thing to watch. Then I went to my first rowing regatta.
Drove 3 hours to a regatta last weekend. 10 minutes before we reach the race, we get a call it's too windy, race was cancelled. Luckily we had another race the next day. Couple people didn't and turned around and went home. I can't wait until she goes to college.
