I can’t believe it’s already the end of March. Where has time gone?
I’ve been meaning to keep my blog updated but life tends to get in the way. =)
So, to recap since my last blog posting:
The boys played in their first tournament on March 20 at Willow Glen. The average height was about 6′, where my boys are about 5’9″. So, it was a bit scary at first. But to my surprise, they played very well against the stronger teams. We learned that they do it have it in them to play well, but for whatever reason they aren’t consistent. I need to email some coaches to ask their opinion about how to practice on this. We have played a couple of league matches as well. If we played up to my expectation, they would have won or at least played better. But of course, they didn’t. So, we’re now 1-2 for league. It appears that winning our league is going to be much tougher than I expected. If only they would believe in themselves more, I think we would be a big surprise to a lot of people.
As for my girls, we had our worse tournament play so far this season. They couldn’t pass or work together as a team if their lives depended on it. But the positive, is they did turn it on in the end to win a couple of matches.
We celebrated Gary’s 46th birthday on the 22nd. The previous Sunday, we actually celebrated at his parents house. It was a small celebration, but Gary loved it. It was perfect. I ended practice early on the 22nd so I could surprise him with a cake when I got home. Another small celebration just for him. He’s a good sport about it too. I know he really doesn’t like celebrating birthdays, but he does it to humor me because I love it.
As for me, I’ve been fighting off 3 weeks of bronchitis now. I think today is the first day that I woke up and didn’t have to cough up a lung to clear them out in the morning. So, we’ll see how the day continues to go.
I haven’t scrapbooked at all lately. I still have to finish my Road Trip album so I can officially say that it’s done. I’m very proud of my girlfriend Tina because she’s been on a scrapbook roll. Ever since we attended that workshop, she’s been using that method to complete another album she’s been meaning to put together. I’m glad that I found another buddy to scrapbook with. The challenge now is to actually get into the room to scrapbook. I did print out over 1000 pictures to work on for my next album project which is our stayaction 2009. I figured I would treat each day as a separate album and then in the end put them all in one or two albums. With over 1000 pictures, I’m sure there’s going to be some in there that won’t make the cut, but oh well. It’s better to be safe than sorry.
Well back to the grind. Until next time.
