Seth will be moving schools in August because the school he attends only goes through the 9th grade. I have been a little apprehensive about this move because I guess I try and protect him too much and every one at this little school is aware of the problems Seth has and has always been great with him.
Last week Seth came to me and asked could he ask the football coach if he could be the manager. I sort of put him off because I wasn't sure if they would have a place for him or if they would really want him there and I also wanted to talk to the coach first because I didn't want to put him or Seth in a bad situation. Wednesday afternoon when I picked Patton up from practice I had an opportunity to speak with the coach and the conversation went something like this.
Me: Hey coach I have something I need to ask you and if you do not have a place or can't do it I understand but Seth was wondering...
Coach: Yes he can, before you even finish your sentence just tell him to be here tomorrow I have a job for him.
Me: (with tears in my eyes) Thank you so much I will have him call you because I want him to ask also.
I wish you could have seen the smile that came across Seth's face when I told him. He was thrilled and he said to me "I may not can play football but now I can be with my friends and be a part of the team." What a joy to see him be so happy over something so small. We take so much for granted, something like this just helps you see things a little differently.
