A little mom moment is needed.  If you need me any given weekend you can find me in a few places……the courts

and soon the volleyball courts.  I am wearing my sports shirts proudly


and we have our sights on colleges for Tyler who is working hard.  Thanks to all who see him at work and say he is polite and smiled.  I am beyond proud of ALL of them.  Each of them are amazing, trying, driving us nuts, making us smile, laugh, cry, go crazy and being the teenagers they are supposed to be.  YES…we officially have all teenagers.  This man keeps his eye on the prize, is composed and signed up for three more…


For that I am grateful.  There is never a dull moment……”A” Game Baby.  He says that all the time.

When you least expect it, life sets you up with a challenge to test your courage and willingness to stretch and change; at such a moment, there’s no point in pretending that nothing has happened or in saying that you are not yet ready.  The challenge will not wait.  Life does not look back.  Say it out loud: “Today I will do what others won’t, so tomorrow I can do what others can’t.” It will be risky and scary, and yet at the same time, so beautiful.  Because the truth is, it shouldn’t be easy to be amazing.  Then everything would be.  It’s the things you fight for and struggle with before earning that have the greatest worth.  When something is difficult to come by, you’ll do that far more to make sure it’s even harder – if not impossible – to lose.”
