And my baby did it anyway. :) I'm busting-buttons proud of her.

Today is her first XC meet. She is nervous. But man, this girl rocks a brave face. She casually invited me to the meet, where she will be running a 3K. I told her I'd try to attend, and when I said I was able to get the afternoon off, she was over the moon excited. She's been texting me this afternoon to make sure I'm coming. Oh, I'll be there, baby. :)
And I called the school and told them to make sure my son stays for tutorial (after school study hour with the teacher). Oh, it's a grab bag, pick either Math or Science. His online grades are giving me the shivers. Yuck. The other day I had made it explicitly clear that he needed to attend math tutorial after school. He did not. When I got home (on my new bike, yay!!), I stopped at the football field and asked him if he attended. When he said no ("I didn't know you wanted me to!") I told him to go tell the coach he is leaving because he did not go to tutorial. OH BOY, was he ever pissed!
We got home and HE gave ME a lecture about how the field is for players, and I'm not to step foot on the field. And that I should NEVER EMBARRASS him like that again. And that he has an OBLIGATION to his TEAM!
Oh, you know we had words. I'll tell you where your obligation is, you little punk. :)
He did go to tutorial this morning, and I pray he did okay on his math test today, as well. But I am shocked at his grade in Science, as well. This kid is lazy, lazy, lazy when it comes to his studies. Or anything but football, really. So I called the office and told them to have him stay for Science tutorial and I will pick him up after the XC meet.
