The Braves play here...

Saturday night I took a group of 35 4'her's and parents to Georgia 4H Night at the Braves game. Overall it was a good trip...even though we left Clarkesville at 3:40...and didn't get to the stadium until 7:15! (I had planned to be there around 5) We were stuck in traffic for about 2 1/2 hours in downtown Atlanta...It was ridiculous. They are paving 4 of the lanes and so at the 75/85 merge traffic moves from 10 or more lanes down to two. I hated that we were so late getting to the game because several of the kids had never been to a Braves game and they missed out on all the pre-game stuff, but maybe they can go another year...

Laura and Eric drove down separately and so she experienced her first baseball game. She did great and fell asleep in her front pack for the last half of the game...She didn't miss much...the Braves lost 8-2.

It was after 1:30 before I got back home though...despite numerous reminders for them to call their parents to let them know we were almost home...3 kids 'forgot' until we got back to the office...Grrr...One child didn't even know her home phone number...how can you be in the 5th grade and not know that??
