Life is full of decisions. Some easy and some not so easy. It is hard enough when you have to make a decision that only impacts yourself; however, when you have to make a decision that could be impacting the future of your children, it is a whole other story.
The Farmer and I have to make a decision that will impact Big Sissy. Now in the scheme of things it is a rather minor decision, but I hate the fact that the decision we are making today could be determining her future.
Big Sissy is at the age where some of her friends are starting to get involved with travel teams for sports. To The Farmer and me, this is a big decision. We want to give her and Bubby and Little Sissy, every opportunity we can; however, the time commitment and impact on everyone else in the family are a bit scary and this is only the first step.
I feel like at age 8 we have to make the decision on if she will have the opportunity to play sports in high school. This is quite scary to me. The Farmer and I both played sports, several different ones each, until high school and then were able to determine what to pursue. Unfortunately, I don't feel this is the case anymore.
It feels like we have to decide now what one or two sports she might have the opportunity to play in high school if she so chooses.
