We didn't have the money to get ours (2,800 miles away as the crow flies) back for Thanksgiving for three years (with that XMas trip just a couple weeks away, which we did sink the money for)... but senior year, I couldn't take it anymore and got her home for turkey.

But, boy, they learn self-sufficiency in a hurry. A very good thing, that

It’s tougher for me than it is for her. She’s been there since June and she’s been home twice. She went home with Hannah for Thanksgiving because she wanted to see Georgia. I wanted to punch her. 😆 I’m so looking forward for for the Fullerton tournament.

TideKid, just have patience. Most likely this 11yr old along with ALOT of these early, can't miss Daycare attendees will be cast aside in a few years. Ripe for your picking.

UCLA, OK...Wow. I mean how insanely stupid must you be to cart your kid all over the country at 11? Odds are they'll spend more in plane fare than any future scholarship will ever be worth. And that's just the beginning. I'd love to know what the kids dad, I'll call him Copernicus, will spend over the next almost 6 years keeping his kid on the cutting edge to prepare for Florida? Crap, he's already reached the point of diminishing returns. The Ego on dad must cause an Eclipse when he walks outside. 

PARENTS ARE THE PROBLEM. And this particular thread has been great.

Yeah, you guys do get that big helper... either Nutter or Garman every year.

Yes, this has been MUCH tougher on mom and me.... for sure

Meaning she will have to wait her turn, or is she not available to play?  I am looking forward to seeing each of the frosh getting a chance in the early season.  I was thinking J. had a good chance of seeing playing time.

I made the comment referring to her injury, but the other applies, as well.

I am truly sorry for her, as well as the rest of us Gator softball fans.  When did it happen?  Any time estimate for her return?
