70 degree weather here in central Virginia has me thinking all about Spring, though we are still in mid-February. In my homestate of Vermont, Feb 17 is surely "the bleak midwinter" but today was amazing weather. Lacrosse season begins here for high schools this week and the University of Virginia men's and women's teams kick off their seasons this weekend. As an unabashed fan of lacrosse, after playing and coaching for decades, I am pumped. I'm still thinking through how one observes a Holy Lent while also relishing the feasts of fun and joy that are lacrosse ... no answers there just yet.
Go Lacrosse! (Go UVA!)
