Decisions, tennis and little boys
Okay, I know he is not so little anymore. However, I’m 41 and he is just 10, so he seems very little to me.
Little to be making decisions about not trying out for his school’s tennis team because it would interfere with his studying. Studying that doesn’t come as easily as it does for other kids. Unfortunately tennis is always on a Monday and they write tests on a Tuesday. He just can’t.
I’m proud of him for realizing that he has to give up some things in order to do well at school. It’s just tough seeing him make that decision. He has taken tennis lessons since he was 5. It’s a long time not to then try out for school team.
Of course rugby is a totally different sport all together. Not much that will stop him from playing there. They are busy with try outs and I really hope that he makes the A team again.
It really is one of the big things that keeps him positive.
