5:45am - Wakeup (sort of); shower. Think about the happy jig I would do in honor of the last Mites away game, if only I were a little more awake.
6:00am - Lars has huge sneeze. Gob of mucous gets stuck in his throat and he gags a little. Recovers; seems bouncy.
6:05am - Breakfast. Wonder how the children can be so talkative at this hour and how long I can go without actually giving a response.
6:25am - Pile into car; drive to Morristown.
6:55am, 100' from entrance drive to rink - Lars pukes a little.
6:56am: Chris pulls car over in rink driveway but not before Lars pukes a lot.
6:57am: Lars pukes some more, thankfully now outside the car.
6:58am: Another Bears family arrives. Situation is quickly assessed, Ross and Chris go with other family; I wait for Lars to feel a little better and then take him home. We drive with all the windows and the sunroof open. We freeze but it's better than the windows closed option.
7:30am: Lars makes it to the house before the next round.
7:35am: Lars goes to shower. I start laundry and clean car.
7:55am: Lars asks if he can have a granola bar. Uh, no.
