When I opened up our local newspaper this week, there was a picture of the High School Track Team.
This is what you see:
And here's what it looks like to me:
You might think that it looks like any other High School sports team picture but this one HAS MY KID IN IT!!!! This is the first time for this so far as I know in generations. The closest I ever got to a jock was assigned seating in Geometry class. Sure, my boys have played in different recreational sports for years now, but this is High School, with real uniforms and professional pictures in the newspaper. Where people pay money to go watch them compete. Where you earn a letter like Danny did to impress Sandy in Grease.
I am so very proud.
And who knows, maybe he will even make it over the hurdles.
