Something kind of cool

Last week was Paxton's last ball game of the season. It was a great game, and a great season for that matter. We took Sophie along to watch, and she sat patiently and happily with us on the bottom bench of the bleachers.

After the game, the coach handed all the parents a letter, along with an individual assessment of your child. Paxton's first few sentences said this:

"Paxton improved the most out of any player on the team this year from start to finish. He should be very proud of himself. He always gives his best and his behavior was exemplary during practice and at our games"

Everyone knows how I feel about anything school-like in nature. I abhor tests and grades, gold stars and progress reports. But this was cool. He's found a sport he loves and he's working hard at it. He should be proud, and I'm proud too.
