KHSAA regulation would prohibit middle school students who repeat a grade from playing | High School Sports | Kentucky.com

When we lived in Georgia, we knew a number of people that were holding their kids back in school for sports reasons - all thinking somehow that their  prodigal sons were going to QB the ‘Dawgs some day due to being bigger, stronger, faster and showing up the kids a year less developed (but if everyone is held back, doesn’t that defeat the strategy’s purpose? anyways…).  Every state needs this rule in place, IMO.

Some times you see photos in your stream for the first time. Sometimes those photos show you that your little girl isn’t so little anymore. However, the family Golden Retriever still sits next to her and keeps a watch out…

20 years ago Kim and I saw Forrest Gump - great movie. Kim cried a lot.  I mean, a whole hell of a lot. Yea, I got misty. But I didn’t gush.
14 years ago. Demetrius was born.
11 years ago (approximately), the boy was diagnosed with autism.
Now, I watch Forrest Gump differently.  I do cry (still not as much as Kim).  Funny, it gives me lots of hope for my boy.  I cry…happily, maybe? Dunno. 
Happy 20th anniversary Forrest Gump. Thank you Mr. Hanks.  Thank you Mr. Zemeckis…for giving me a movie that gives me a bit a hope when I need it.
Run Forrest, Run.  While we Swim Super D, Swim!
