Granny_Weatherwax Posted September 3, 2012 Share Posted September 3, 2012 There have been so many FB posts this past few weeks from friend's and acquaintances bragging about their children who participate in summer/fall sports. Yes, I am happy their children swam the fastest, made the most touchdowns during football camp, were selected cheerleading captain, football captain, first string quarterback, etc and etc. Since my DS does not play a fall sport, I cannot add to the numerous declarations... so I want to brag here about what he has done. He rocked the Spring Explore test and placed first in the freshman class; the scores were distributed last week. He passed Driver's Ed while fighting two facial tics associated with his TS. He designed his Eagle Scout project and was given the 'go ahead' by the council. His old Scout Master was in the room when DS had to get the final signatures and the SM completely ignored DS. DS held his head high, explained his project and requested the proper signatures. He volunteered to stay after band practice a couple of days to help the director with some mundane tasks. He signed up to audition for honor band and honor jazz band. Worthy of bragging rights? Maybe not to some but for a boy who is introverted and usually on the sidelines these are wonderful accomplishments. My DD began her freshman year of college. She is working two jobs, taking 4 classes and playing Women's Varsity Tennis, all while taking care of her 10 month old. She is learning how to prioritize and advocate for herself. Worthy of bragging rights? Maybe not but I am proud of her for following her dreams and at least giving it a try. Will she be able to continue all of her activities? I don't know but I am going to try to support her as much as I can. Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
