My DS received a Congressional Nomination and recently received an invitation to a Service Academy Nomination Ceremony. According to the invite, the kids who received nominations will be recognized and given a certificate for their achievement as well as have opportunities to meet our Congresswoman and Academy Liaisons. I think this is a wonderful honor and highly recommend my DS attend, the family is invited as well. Here's the dilemma...my DS is the captain of his Lacrosse team and they have a game that evening so he has already said he would not be able to attend the nomination ceremony. Am I crazy to think that he's absurd! I appreciate his commitment to his team but he will not be a professional Lacrosse player! He wants to be a Marine Officer. Any parental advice is welcomed!
