We are scheduled to do a couple travel meets this year. One is clear up in Boston, a 6-hour drive for us, in January. My ds's birthday is Thurs. January 14th and it looks like Olivia is tetatively scheduled to compete on Friday the 15th. We'll have to leave home, taking her out of school early, on the 14th. That means we'll miss celebrating ds's birthday with him. I'm sad about it already. Typically dh and ds stay home and don't attend meets. Maybe we can all go together and celebrate over the weekend? Has anyone run into this problem before? I'm sure there has to be someone out there that has!
