He Can Get One

He made it to the top of this climbing wall at Fort Worth Zoo

I have five children, including four boys, and none have joined an organized sports.  Actually, I take that back.  They were in martial arts for 4 years.  If I have time, two would be on rock climbing gym on a regular basis.  I guess it is possible that they could win sports trophies and medals, if only they were given a chance.  I am not saying that we do not have any trophies and medals here.  My husband won a lot in tennis at his leagues.  But the children came from excelling in school and on standardized test.  I still see medals, they just carry "math, science, music" signs.   I believe my children do well in school because they love accumulating those things.  I made sure to display them in prominent places just so they know how much I appreciate it, too.
