Team Player

After her last set this morning, A's swim team coach took her aside and asked her to be a team captain.

On the way home, A said to me that she realized that she needed to be more encouraging to those she previously dismissed as slacking bootlickers, "you know, mom, be more of a leader because leaders not only encourage people, they do what they expect others to do."

I am so proud to know this kid.
