My youngest son came home recently and was excited to have made the honor roll for the first time. The school he attends always does something special for the honor roll students to congratulate and encourage them in their academic success.
He told me that the school's honor roll assembly would feature NASCAR race cars and drivers. NASCAR??? Yes, he assured me! Now since we live in a very small town, far, far away from any NASCAR track I doubted this fact, but surely didn't dim his excitement.
The day arrived and some great local race car and drivers graciously came to the school, drove around some and let the children look at their cars. Surely the men who came out exemplified a winning spirit!
The this little boys excitement, sure gave me some joy!
