The Lessons We Are Teaching Our Children...Posted Thursday, June 23, 2011, at 6:16 PM
I'm sure by now someone has raised an eyebrow and wondered why both my blog and Jimmy's blog regarding the subject of the Bedford County Board of Education's decision NOT to allow home school students the right to participate in school sports are no longer posted online.
Without going into grave detail I will simply state that this issue has caused so much backlash, including difficulties on personal friends of ours within the public school faculty who support our cause, that our daughter has now made the painful decision to give up her [conceived] right to play soccer with her teammates. Lillie does not want to be the cause of someone else' suffering and is therefore willing to travel outside of our hometown and play for a team elsewhere.
I would simply like to state how much we appreciate the support offered to us by the players on the Shelbyville girl's soccer team and their parents. You have all been more than accepting of Lillie and have always made us feel welcome. We will miss you and wish you all the best of luck in the upcoming season...and be sure to look for us in stands rooting you on.
