I remember when I was in school... I played baseball.
It was always played right after school so it was hard for working parents to get to the games.
Unlike football and basketball, which were played after parents got home.
So, as a grand parent my wife and I attend all the track meets we can and we cheer on the entire team.
I actually am able to get down with the runners and others to talk and encourage them.
Yes, it does take time out of my day, but I believe I am helping to build our future.
