The word as of last night is this: just as the student athletes at Hippy Dippy High School have been able to sign up to play sports at one of the other high schools in town, Snowman will be added to the audition list from one or the other of the high schools and go with them. We’ll know which one next week. Phew!
Thank you again for your kind and encouraging thoughts. I’m sure that making this happen for the first time will make it much easier to keep it happening in future years.
Terminal Degree mentioned something about tapes in a comment below, and I wanted to add that there are no tapes involved. There are three regional auditions around the state, which students attend in person.
I tend to think I AM THE ONLY ONE who can follow through and fix things. Snowman, his father and his principal worked this out with absolutely no help from me, other than remembering there must be a deadline and discovering we had missed it. Let this be a lesson to me! I can let go of all that "I AM MOM, THE GREAT AND POWERFUL," where I behave like the Wizard trying to create an illusion of omnipotence. It’s good to come out from behind the curtain and admit there are some things I can handle and other tasks better suited to someone else, either generally or on a particular day. And THAT is a relief.
