The last weekend in April, our team was invited to Missoula by the U of M lacrosse team to hang out on their field before their last home game.
They got to see how fast they shoot, and even shoot on the Griz goalie.
This shot was my "happy accident".
I love it, but I didn't plan it.
Elliott was being so good, just watching the kids, and soaking up the sun.
They got to throw around for a while.
Elliott loves throwing around with Ethan.
Everyone had fun, and being on the Griz field was just awesome.
Here's most of our team (not sure why the 1/2 naked player decided to sit by the kids I was photoing, but it happened).
This is just a small number of kids who play lacrosse in Montana.
Then we got to go back for the UM vs MSU lacrosse game. UM won, and it was a lot more fun to watch now that we know more about what we are watching.
The stadium is pretty dang cool.
Ethan with his friends (not us of course).
Game 1 vs Billings. Ethan in the first face-off.
A lot of Ethan's former hockey teammates are also playing lacrosse. I love that we get to stay in touch with these families.
Ethan plays tough.
I was score keeping, so Jason was the camera man. He's much better than me.
I love watching Ethan beat every kid, big or small, to the middle. Let me tell you, Ethan can sprint.
He never gives up.
2 of our smallest players vs their biggest. Awesome.
That's Ethan, between the giant kids legs. Haha
Just Ethan, beating another kid in for the ball.
This was my view.
After the games.
Our first weekend was tough. They got stomped on. It was a big learning weekend for them, but they loved every second on the field.
