Fantastic Fridays - TEAM

Tonight is the night. I made final cuts last night. After practice tonight we are having a team dinner where the girls will bring their RSVPs from the invitations they received to be a part of the Epicopal Varsity Basketball 2008-09 team and paste them on our commitment poster for the locker room. And then - our team will be final!!! :) It's been a crazy, hectic first week - but so fun at the same time! And that's why today is fantastic... because I made it through my first week as head coach! :)

Lend your ear.... it's worth it

For those of you that don't know, I go to a church that is racially diverse to say the least. One of the priorities in my church is reconciliation. My pastor (Brett Fuller) decided that after the election, the results had the possibility of dividing the people in our church so he took the issue head on, although it may be a little uncomfortable. It was a much needed sermon and amazing how he hit both sides from a Biblical perspective. I could write a lot more about this but Pastor Fuller does a much better job talking about it so just click here and listen! LISTEN TO THE WHOLE THING!!!!!!!!!!

Let the Games Begin!!!!!

Today is the day!! Tryouts for the Episcopal Varsity (and JV) team start at 3:30pm sharp this afternoon....

My life, as I know it, for the next 4 months will be immersed with high school basketball, game strategy, boy-crazy girls (I'm talking about my players, not my friends), figuring out how to get my players to take ownership of something bigger than themselves...a team. I loved working with these young ladies last year and I'm hoping for more of the same this year! They are like sponges... and hilarious....(did I mention dramatic and stubborn) at this age. That's what I love about working with them, I get a chance to pour into them and help mold their lives!

I'm excited to see what new blood we get this year and becoming a new team as we practice and grow together! I'm hoping to continue to blog throughout the season even though I'll be as busy as a bee! As for now, I have to get going!!!!!!! Wish me (us) luck!!!

More Fall and Fun

I was gonna post about my weekend and put a few pics from the different excursions I joined in and some how or another I came across these cutie pie pics and couldn't help put them up. I know I'm not related to J & A's Lil D... but I sure do dote on him like I am! I love going by their place after work just to see this little smile looking up at me as I walk up the stairs and come around the corner. It melts my heart! I can't imagine having to say no to this little man. Thank goodness I don't have to! :) Here are some pics of my weekend (but mostly of Dawson):

Tiny D in his Halloween costume... What a handsome little cowboy! Saddle up!

Playing with Tiny D... The cuteness factor is way ridiculous here.

I asked A if I could take the little guy out and do a photo shoot with him... he didn't disappoint, of course. He's a natural!!

I went to Great Falls with some friends from GCC. It was absolutely beautiful on Saturday! And of course we got to partake in my favorite: 3F's Fun, Food (picnic) and Fellowship
Here's a shot of the crew after our hike!
Needless to say I had a great and relaxing weekend as well as enjoyed God's beautiful creation with some of my favorite people!! I start my early days the week after this one...So this was a much needed time of rest for me. Now it's time to get down to business :)
