So are your kids done with the charter school they were at, or is the charter school big enough to have a football team?

They were not at a charter school, it was an alternative program public school K-8. Now they are at high school and yes, three football teams -freshman, JV and Varsity, it's one of the three regular public high school in Ann Arbor (although not the one we are zoned for)

Ann Arbor has 3 full-size regular, and 3 smaller alternative program high schools (all public) and maybe 4 charter high schools and 3 private. If we were at one of the alternate public high schools, the charter schools or the private schools, the kids would then be able to be on the sports teams/bands of their zoned school if their school did not offer that program and they could get themselves to practice. So he's be in a green nutcracker uniform instead of Colombia Blue

Of course one is no longer there, she has flown the nest and is at University of Michigan. Bizarrely, much closer than her high school (which was 6 miles away), although she is living in dorms.

That's how she was able to visit and represent the graduated players to receive the State Champion accolade

um? Are you referring to the polo state champ, or the boy in band uniform? Or just mixing and matching?

just the what do we have here question--a feather --ha-- in her cap. just riffing.

you have very very accomplished children and you and beest have countless reasons to be proud of them. among other things, they reflect very well upon you two as parents.

you deserve feathers in your caps as well.

No man with three "children" that age who still want to hang with him is useless.
Remind yourself sometimes.

(Yeah I get you were joking. But I'm serious.)

classic, you need to print, or tattoo, Sundae's post where you can keep it in mind, all the time.

Well put Sundae.

Well done, Dad.
