Chicken Pants

So another story about my kid (see “pre-teen confidence” and “try outs” in August for more of this story.) She calls me two days ago.  “Mom, its basketball try outs.  Will you pick me up after?”  She made the first cut! Then yesterday she went to the second cut and didn’t make it.  She was sad but she brushed it off. “I’m only in 6th grade so I bet I’ll make it next year when I try out.” 

It really just amazes me.  I’m such a chicken about sports. Any ball within ten feet of me is guaranteed to hit me in the back of the head and running will involve at least one spectacular and embarrassing fall.  I’m so glad my kids overcame my sports inabilities!
