So in the meantime, we are doing high school wrestling fundraisers to pay for our trips for next year. We just finished a club fundraiser (a crawfish boil...yummy) and it was awesome. We are preparing for a car wash this Saturday for the high school team. If you live in our area and would like a ticket, please let me know. They are $10 and that gets you a car wash and vacuum.
The other thing I wanted to write about was the life lessons our high school program teaches our kids. This past Saturday our city had a city wide clean up day. Our coach signed our team up for part of the clean up. So, Saturday morning, members of our team were out picking up trash on the side of the road. One of them even picked up a dead raccoon out of the middle of the road!!! :)
Now that is dedication to your community.
We all want our children to be successful adults. Our coaches want these kids to be visible members of the community, and not just for their sports accomplishments. They want them to be involved in the city and in turn we hope the members of the community want to be involved with us. We can help each other in so many ways. The idea that my teenager has other adults in his life to help reinforce these lessons means so much to me.
So, here is to downtime and community!
