I checked my boy into school yesterday. He’s a wide receiver and will be playing football. Since he was six years old and playing on the neighborhood flag football team to ending his high school career as Team Captain, Jack has worked very hard to play college football. So I’m excited for him and his future. But good grief, what an emotional day! (More photos on my Instagram.)
Jack reaching his football goal is analogous to buying a home in that you work hard and are disciplined saving up for the down payment to you can sign the papers to your first home. Or, maybe you’re ready to sell and move to something larger or take a job across the country. You think the day when you meet your goal is so far in the future it will take forever to arrive, yet all of the sudden you’ve finally made it. Just like walking on the field in a college stadium for the firs time, there’s something pretty awesome about holding the keys to your new home. It’s pretty amazing and indescribable.
