Good morning. We ended leaving the banquet a little early last night because, frankly, it was falling into chaos. We were home by 8:30pm, there were still two football teams, several baskets to award, a couple of special awards and a few more drawings. I was especially annoyed that we were told each team had 10 minutes at the podium. The cheerleaders honored that, but the football players did not. A few of the boys actually booed when the girls went up first to receive their awards. Brats. The organization has some work to do. But, on a positive note, Duckie received a perfect attendance award. She a little sad she didn't win the spirit or most improved but I talked her through it. I explained that, unfortunately, her asthma started up just at the time our season kicked into full gear. She was sick for most of it and just not as outgoing as normal. Then, I had her think back to when practice started and all the struggles that her friend S had, and to think ahead to the end of the season. She understood why S got most improved. But I pointed out to her that she was definitely in the running. So I'm off to church this morning. I'll let Duckie stay home since she's rather tired from last night. Have a great day!
