There are things in life that just doesn't come easy, you have to work hard and earned it yourself, if you really wanted badly. Our kids are starting to get the hints. Justin had been thinking about playing high school football at first, somehow he changed his mind and wanted to play soccer instead. He saved up his money and used it for whatever needed for soccer. Justin stayed after school and practice day after day knowing there are 50 kids trying out for soccer, and a lot of them had been playing since they were 5 years of age. So he had a lot of pressure on him. He has to be good to be able to make the team since coach will only pick 27 out of 50 players.The last several weeks he came home with big appetites. I was wondering why until one day I dropped Kailee off at school for a basketball practice and I went to see if Justin needed a ride, I realized that the soccer kids were working hard at the Field right after school till 5 or 6. These last three days were try outs. After working hard for several weeks, Justin made the team. He is so excited. It was his dream and passion. He did it on his own.
