I had some fun in high school, but also found that it was hard work and tough to get the good grades my parents expected me to get. And I always had a lot of chores and jobs, morning and night on the farm, every day.

I enjoyed the band and chorus a lot in high school. What does your son play? That is something he can enjoy for the rest of his life, if he wants to.

If he is already 6 feet 2 and 200lbs, I would guess that the football coach and basketball coach will take an interest in your son. It will be interesting to see how large he becomes over the next few years. Athletics is not for everyone, just because they are big, but being a successful athlete in high school opens some doors for a person socially. I was always a little guy until I was a senior, and I envied the guys who got their growth earlier than I football coach saw me 10 years after I graduated, 2 inches taller and 100 pounds heavier. He asked me where all that size was when HE needed it? Size matters, and your son seems to have been given a good measure of it. I sincerely hope your son will be interested in athletics. If not, that"s OK too.

I found that going away to college was a whole lot easier and more fun than high school had been. I didn"t have all that farm work to do every day, and I found the classes I took were much easier than the ones I had in high school. I was able to get very good grades and also had a great social life. I probably spent more money than I should have partying, but I never missed a class because of it. College, not high school was the most fun, carefree time of my life.

Good luck to your son! I hope he enjoys high school and whatever paths he chooses to take on that journey. Enjoy this time, as it passes so very quickly--it will amaze you how soon it will be until he graduates!
