A few months ago, the kids' school had a free throw basketball shoot contest. El Fuego wanted to participated and ended up going forward to the next level. The Elks National Hoop Shoot Free-Throw program is bigger than I understood.
Sadly, El Fuego didn't do very well and it proved to be a life lesson more than anything else.
We are proud that he followed through and stuck it out, even when we could see he would have done anything to leave. It was hard to watch. But, he tried his best and that's all that matters in the end.
Good job El Fuego!
