Ready, set, ADD!

Last Saturday morning.

6:30 am. Wake-up. Agony.

7:30 am. Frantically load family into car. Drive across town to activity center inexplicably built in the middle of the middle of nowhere.

9:00 am - 2:00 pm. Me: Supervise Ramrod. I know what you're thinking and it's not like that at all - remember this is a FAMILY event. Get your mind out of the gutter. It is, instead, a Math Pentathlon game that I was roped into supervising at the all-day Math Pentathlon tournament in which Big E was a participant. It was actually not the Death by Torture I'd been expecting and was much better than sitting around all day on bleachers (have they always been made out of harder-than-steel composite material?).

9:00 am - 2:00 pm. Big E: Busy winning every game she played. By the end of the day she'd earned herself a spot in the 2007 Math Pentathlon Hall of Fame. It will look great on her college applications, I'm sure. Way to go, Big E. Although, I don't know how the Math Pentathlon Powers That Be think they're ever going to get television coverage without a swimsuit competition. Slackers.
