It's always exciting to see your kid do well in their activities. Whether sports related or academics, their success is to be celebrated. And here in the Higham house, we get really excited when one of our kiddos does well! Just yesterday, we received word that Nate was honored with the high school's Athlete of the Month.
So Wednesday morning, Amy gets a text message from Nate that he had been named the school's Athlete of the Month. I think it's well earned. Nate works hard as an athlete, leaving everything he has on the field of play. He's a total team-player, not thinking of himself as anything more that a member of the team with the responsibility to play hard, do his part, and support and encourage his teammates.
Nate delivers a pitch in one of the early season games for the HS Varsity Baseball Team.

Amy and I are super proud of Nate and all the hard work he has put into his seasons. We've watched him win and we've watched him lose. And his integrity in both has made shown his growing maturity as an athlete.
So congratulations, Nate! Enjoy your moment. Savor every second. But remember that who you are is not found in how high you jump, how fast your throw, or how far you can hit a ball. You are a child of the Most High God, and nothing and no one will ever change that! So play as you live, for the glory and applause of the One who gave you the talent and gift to do what you love!
