You Lose Some, You Win some

First, the bad news: Turns out softball tryouts were only three days, not all week. The team rosters were posted this afternoon, and Carolyn's name wasn't on it-- a bad session in the batting cages did her in. Obviously, she's bummed-- angry at herself, mostly, because she didn't do as well as she knows she can. In the same breath, she's talking about tryouts next year, and planning to try out for the all-star team in league ball this summer.

Now the good news: her world geography class held a debate about changing the school mascot (currently, the Indians). Carolyn was on the side in favor of the change, and apparently argued the case successfully enough that her opponent found himself in small, inarticulate pieces on the classroom floor. In fact, so thorough was she that her teacher cautioned her; said she'd never get a date that way (no, I'm not kidding). Carolyn's response? She told him that any guy who can't handle more than one-syllable words, she's not interested in, anyway.

Thank you, Jesus, for strength in body and in mind.

I'm proud of my daughter.
