This week’s prompt –Cheer
Today I’m cheering my first born son’s first born son, Alex.
My Alex and I.
Alex graduates next Tuesday from High School!
For some people studying is easy and learning a breeze,
Alex had to work hard. and it wasn’t easy.
Volleyball, now that came as second nature.
Beauty like ballet in action.
But teachers don’t grade on how well you play ball.
In fact, how well you study determines whether or not you play.
Alex had a struggle.
We will all cheer.
And probably shed some tears,
Coz, it doesn’t seem like he should be old enough to graduate yet.
Alex is in the middle.
He should still be young enough to tell a school secretary,
“I don’t have a grandma” when she told him I would be picking him up from school.
She said, “you know your daddy’s mom.”
He replied with much relief, ” Oh you mean my Grannie!”
GO! ALEX! GO!
