parent volunteerism...it comes with the territory
Well, I'm off to my kid's school to serve as a time-keeper at the finish line of his cross-country meet. Like most youth sports programs, the parents do most of the work so the coaches can coach. It's cool but cross-country is not exactly a spectator sport. They take off into the woods and neighborhoods and you don't see them for 15 minutes, then there's this rush of excitement as you wait to see your kid in the pack as they near the finish...then it's over. Oh well, he loves to run, so as long as they're still handing out track scholarships for college I'm down with it.
