But "Well... that might not happen. See, apparently there is a basketball game in the gym. So there are options. We're voting on them [in the group chat that no adult has access to]. I want to just keep practice at the same time but practice in the commons instead of the gym. The other choices are 8-10 or 8:30-10:30."

It's just so *stressful*.

The oldest has something to do Saturday that (since he's still only 17) one of his parents has to sign in with him. This Something has already been rescheduled once because of a conflict he had with a baseball clinic at a college he's interested in (and had to travel to), and it's across town (45 minute drive).

T is out of town until Sunday.

I might (or might not!) have to get the youngest to practice at the same time. I don't know yet, and that practice will be 15 minutes in the opposite direction of where the oldest needs to be.

So far, all I can get out of the oldest's father is he "should" be able to take him Saturday.

However, he was also the one that introduced the conflict causing the original reschedule, so...

His girlfriend isn't technically a parent (because no piece of paper says so), so despite her being his in-practice stepmother, SHE can't take him and sign him in.

I might (or might not!) be recruiting my sister to take the youngest to practice.
