    Necropost!

    Proud papa report. My middle child just started her second season of competitive academy soccer. She got close a few times this fall, but hadn't managed to bury one. She's a fullback so she doesn't get many chances unless she's shooting from distance. Last night, she finally got over that hump and cracked one home on a one timer from about 30 yards out. This morning she buried her second, also from distance. She's come a long way.

    I'll brag on my oldest -- he's a high school junior. He made the top band at the University of Alabama High School Honor Band Festival. And for the third year in a row he made the District IV Honor Band (fourth chair this year), which is the honor band for the best high school musicians in Jefferson and Shelby counties; and he made the Allstate Honor Band, which is made up of the best high school musicians in the state. And he made the Shelby County Honor Band (second chair).

    My #2 and #3 also made the Shelby County Honor Band.

    Took my son bowling for the first time today. Two games. The first was a 49. Pretty standard first-timer. Lot of gutter balls and really awkward approaches. But also a lot of instruction and rapid improvement. Second game was a 110. Three spares and two strikes. Wow. I need to quit taking this kid bowling before he's making me look even worse than I already am.

    Chronologically 14, but he's got a complicated background that I won't go into here. In many ways, he's very much younger.

    I was in a junior league back in the day. Won most improved average, so your son's improvement is very cool to me.

    LOL GrandPa. Get on 'em Lady Prof. What's wrong with making a professional presentation while lying in bed?

    I have 3 sons. One 35, one 31 and one 18. I am of course proud of them all. The Oldest is a Purple Heart Veteran of the Iraq war. His unit took back the big power plant you probably saw on tv. They repelled from Blackhawks and fought their way in and took it back then fought their way back to the "safe" side of the river. He was later injured by a IED triggered by a trip wire on a night mission. He is doing well with 2 children and is currently a civilian contractor maintaining helicopters and an Elder in his church. The middle son also a veteran of the Iraq war but was much luckier as he was never injured. He and his wife have two daughters and attend church with us. The youngest is trying to learn to be an adult and balance girl chasing, work and school. Presently girl chasing seems to be winning handily.
