Why do I stay? I guess its because I enjoy watching the kids grow and mature
into competent young adults. I get a kick every time a kid (11 years old)
goes from "You can do it Johnny, it's not far now," to (12 1/2 years old)
"Hey, Mr. Featherkile, can't you keep up any more?" When that happens, I
know they're off to a great start.
