The Last Game
Tonight is Chris’s last game of middle school basketball. Can that really be?
I started coaching him when he was four in “Y” ball and coached him all the way up (except for one year when I had foolishly accepted too many speaking appointments — a mistake I vowed never to make again) until he got real coaches in 7th and 8th grade.
Maybe he’ll keep playing in high school. In fact, I’m guessing he will next year.
But these things go so quickly.
It’s been seven years since I saw Matt play football for AHS. Now he’ll be a doctor next summer (’08).
Why am I writing again to young parents? To tell you from an older dad that the years go quickly. The days, I know, and even the weeks can go very slowly.
Don’t let them pass you.
