Literally, that is what it is called. Caleb is in water polo, and this week he has to be at the high school by 5:45 in the morning. And this doesn't replace his three hour practice after school. Sounds a bit much for water polo, doesn't it? Yeah, but they do it to see who is dedicated and who wants to make the varsity team. One morning miss-- and you don't get on the varsity team. Not that Caleb will automatically make it anyway (this is his first time playing)-- but he is making a huge effort to go every morning.
And John and I are tag team helping. Last night I made up breakfast burritos for Caleb to eat after practice and John drives him and then goes to work. Caleb seems to be enjoying himself. Everyone knows he may not be around in a month or two-- but they still want him to play.
But I can already tell by how early he went to bed that this is going to be a rough week for him.
