So, today he won the election for Homeroom Rep, and also found out that he made his middle school's soccer team as a 6th grader. Pretty cool. Of course this means that he will have either a practice or a game right after school every weekday between now and Halloween, followed on Tuesdays and Fridays by his travel team's regular practice. Good thing he likes soccer: he's going to get a lot of it this fall!
Middle school has a reputation for being tough on a lot of levels. This kid is starting out with both social and athletic affirmations, though...eases some of the worries in this mother's heart.
