Enjoying the Moments

Our boys have heard it ever since they got into middle school: “You are going to be involved in at least one extra-curricular activity.”

It started out when they were much younger. They were on t-ball and little league baseball teams. I saw how much happiness it brought them. But I also realized that it produced all sorts of other benefits:

  • Teamwork
  • Self-disciple
  • Fitness
  • Tenacity
  • Dealing with disappointment
  • Celebrating achievements
  • Etc.

So, when they entered middle school, I made it clear that they couldn’t just go to school. They had to have at least one other thing that enabled them to experience those benefits.

Through the middle school and high school years, we’ve applauded band concerts, celebrated academic team achievements, cheered for the football team, and so much more. This evening, we’re watching Sean as he competes in the shot-put and discus throw.

These are very special times!
