    Although I have shared with you ladies that difficult child has been cut from the other teams for the wrong reasons, I am thrilled to say he at least made the B team. He again was awesome :smile: When we had the 1 on 1 meeting with the coach and he told difficult child that he made it, the relief on difficult child's face was heart-wrenching. He was so worried. He thanked the coach several times and in the end although he knows he's advanced for this team, he's happy that he's on a competitive team and will play with his heart.

    He has learned so many valuable life lessons in the past three weeks.

    I will still ask why he was cut from the other teams but for now, we will enjoy what he has accomplished.

    First practice tomorrow, first game on Monday :smile:

    YAY FOR difficult child!

    I'm glad that he does not view this as a "consolation prize" or something. Good for him!

    Maybe being the "star" player will build up his confidence.....could be a good thing in hindsight.......

    Hoping for a winning season for him.
