I can't say I HATE anything. There are things that I really dislike a lot. This is one of them. People who can't commit. This week I had a kid who wasn't sure he wanted to be on the track team. I told him straight out. Think about what you want because you are either on this team or you're not. Don't waste my time if you're not going to commit!

When I was a teenager, it was my best friend. That was long ago so now it is my daughters. There is no way I could choose just one of these lovlies. My life is so rich because these women are a part of my life. We can get goofy and laugh at just about anything. Sammi has always been the most random but I've got to say that Erin is probably the wittiest. Clare and I can share "mom" things together. They are my best girlfriends and I expect they always will be.
At times when I struggle with personal problems or just need a boost or need help in preparing a lesson, I've leaned heavily upon the one who has been through everything. I am so thankful.

This one always makes me laugh. It was taken at the state track meet 2009. Erin, Whitney, Nick and Tom all qualified to compete and we brought Allyssa along because she's fun. There were a lot of inside jokes that year that included squirrels, raptors and Helen Keller. The kids came up with this goofiness and then Erin added the extras.
I think it is hilarious that Tom appears to be checking out the squirrel he's holding in his hands. Helen Keller looks like she's looking too although we all know she can't see. That raptor appears to be licking his chops in checking out either Whitney or the squirrel.
I'm sure no one else except those in this photo think there's anything funny about this picture, but it brings back so much fun and silliness and competition and memories...all good. This was my favorite year to coach track.

I will ever be grateful for these individuals and our relationships that are priceless. I look forward to the new relationships with those who are not yet a part of this family. Those who will be born into it and those who will marry into our insanity.

With your hands. With your heart. Still 2001. I had the incredible opportunity to watch my family doing something they love. I did end up backstage for several nights to make sure they could handle the costume changes, etc.
