It's possible that it was more organized than we experienced because we showed up about an hour and a half after it began because we couldn't possibly imagine they would have two and a half hours of things to go through.
Never had to do that with Chaco and Wolfgang, by the way, even though it's the same high school they attended. Oh well, the main draw was that he would get a t-shirt. He got that and a tote backpack too, so - win!
He seems to be organizing his year around the extracurriculars:
"So... I can do marching band in the fall, basketball in the winter, and track in spring?"
"Yep. Hey, that's what I did in high school!"
He looks at me weirdly, and then says, "YOU played BASKETBALL?!"
Okay, so why is that shocking?
"Yes! I used to be way taller in high school!", I answered
He didn't believe that.
But I still don't know why it was a surprising revelation. I explained that anyone can play basketball, there are positions for the shorter ones, especially if they're quick. And I'm not all THAT short (5'5"), but Meego has just recently noticed that he's just at about my height and has no intention of stopping there.

So I checked my HS yearbook to make sure I wasn't imagining it all.
Not surprisingly, I was a point guard.
I also happened to be a team captain my senior year.
I managed to make all-state honorable mention sumpin' sumpin' that year too.
I was heavily recruited by several top colleges. Okay, THAT was major imagination!
But most importantly, I had fun and made lasting friendships. I know the yearbook pic doesn't prove to Meego that I actually PLAYED basketball in high school, but it's all I've got.
Clearly, I've been giving him way too much leeway when we go out and shoot hoops. He's going to definitely need to up his game now!
