We had to choose a child

Yesterday we had one of those situations where we had to choose between two of our kids.


Lauren had a soccer game beginning at 4:30 at TN Wesleyan College in Athens.  Chipper had a cross country meet at 5pm at Woodland Park Baptist Church.  There was no way we could make both.


We chose Lauren-and Chipper was cool with our decision.


Here's our logic-Chipper and Lauren both have meets/games again on Saturday.  Chippers is early in the morning and Lauren's is in the evening.  We won't be able to attend Lauren's game that evening because of a wedding, so we chose Lauren last night and Chipper on Saturday.


 


Whew!  These choices are coming to an end as Lauren and Chipper both only have a month left in their athletic careers. In the past Amy and I have "divided and conqoured" but since this is the last seasons for both of them-we want to be there and enjoy them together.


Thank you God for wisdom.


Have you had to make these decisions before?
