    Brag photo's.

    My 9 year old Logan playing rugby. He has scored 13 tries in 4 games. See previous email about him being insane. He plays like a man.



    He ran through this kid, another arm tackle and juked a kid for about a 50 meter try.

    My dreams are big for this one!

    Of course, I think they're both more of fans of exciting players on those teams(Messi, Xavi, Rooney, Nani, etc.) than they are of specific teams so there's not too much drama around results.
    We're a mixed bag when it comes to teams as well.
    Me i'm Liverpool, son is Aston Villa, Dad Man U, Sis Arsenal and Bro Everton!

It was wonderful to see him stand time & time again to be recognized for his academic achievements throughout his jr. high years. Straight A's all three years, High Honors, Presidential Scholar, Language Arts award recipient were all things he stood for.

    What a blessing he is to us!

And even if you help them avoid mistakes, which is a good thing after all, sometimes they DO have to learn for themselves. So it's a catch 22 sometimes, wanting your kids to learn for themselves while wanting to help them bi pass a lot of steps along the way. There is a proper balance somewhere in between, but that is easier said than done.
    I am 23 with a close relationship with my dad. The dynamic you are talking about is fun to grow up to. My pop is a stern guy, and nowadays as a young man start really learn some of the things my dad knows, but he never really bothers to tell me. I am sure he sees it: there are things in life you have to experience first hand, you have to see things for oneself. Thing he did well in my opinion is always pushing into new things and working harder, until my own passions in life developed. Then he just kinda let me go and provides guidance when things get a little hectic... basically that means he brow beats when I'm overlooking things.

    Stern SOB, sorta guy who will always gave me the idea you're not doing good enough... until he spills the beans in just a sentence or two to the tune of a different perspective.
