Musings and Meanderings

One of the things I like about Alex the person

He is not afraid to try things even if risky.

Three good examples.

Last night even though he knew no one from going, he showered and got dressed for the Dance over at LaSalle. Now admittedly when we got there it was obvious he was under dressed and might have been the youngest person there if he had stayed. But he tried.

Few weeks ago he came home and announced he was running for Student Senate. (Student Council). He made signs, and wrote a speech (which we helped on). Eventually he lost, but he tried.

Round that same time, he came home and announced he was running cross country. He has been practicing after school so I figured he would be in good shape for the next meet. For whatever reason he was gassed from the warm ups and finished dead last by at least 10 min. He didn't give up. In fact he said he impressed the older guys by not quitting.

None of these things were pushed on him. Even though he finished so far behind he's not even thinking of quitting Xcountry. This shows me a very good character.
