As most of you know I coach.  I love to coach.  I really do.  I was very hesitant when I was asked to coach a travel team.  I knew the organization was in a bind so I jumped in.  Now I am completely happy with my decision.  Someone tell me why there always has to be dang DRAMA.  I really am not a DRAMA type of girl.  At least that is what I thought.  DRAMA DRAMA DRAMA!  It isn't even with my own team.  Crud I can't handle it.  Flippin DRAMA.

So last night I ran a suicide with my players because I was on the losing team and that was the deal.  Can't move today.  So then towards the end of practice the girls were bragging that they beat me in a suicide.  I responded that a coach my age X should lose.  One of my players said you are that young.  Implying she thought I was older.  I made her run.  She was laughing so hard.  We had so much fun yesterday.

So I hope that there is no DRAMA in the Team DRAMA camp today.  I just can't handle it.

Oh Happy Day

Today I am so excited.  I am registering my team for their second tournament.  Our first weekend was a huge stepping stone for my girls.  They came out and proved throughout the weekend that they want to play basketball and have lots of potential. 
Practice tonight and I hope they are ready to work hard.  

I am hoping that Sammi my swimmer is able to swim this weekend.  She has one more event to get to iron girl this season.  Of course Mom forgot to sign her up for the meet.  Wow we are so proud of her progress.  She has lots of heart and desire to put the time she does in at the pool.  She makes me smile.  Thinking about swimming a mile in the pool makes my whole body hurt.  She doesn't think twice about it.  She works really hard.  

Today is a happy day with the sun shining, the birds chirping and warm weather.  I love it. Off to do genetics.

I have decided I am going to try this blogging thing again. Why I have no idea. I don't even know who reads it. So here we go.

Since I last wrote a lot has happened. I will spare you the details but the reason I started this blog was when my in laws moved in. They have since past on. Mom passed away 2 years ago and Dad this past February. I must say that some days are so emotional and quiet here in our house. Weird to say when we have 3 children and we are never home.

I decided to start coaching again this past year and I am in love with it. I coached a middle school team and had so much fun. Those girls are great. I am now coaching a 7th grade girls travel team and they had their first tournament this weekend and wow they did great. We lost the first 2 games by 30 and won the third game by 38 and lost the 4th game by 5 to the team that beat us by 30. Now we officially have the jitters out. Guess what, we are going to tournament again this weekend. How exciting.

I am back in school for my teaching degree, going to start training for another 1/2 marathon for 2011 and most of all I am going to live life to the fullest.

Have a great day and Happy Spring!
