Saturday brought the beginning of another season of AAU Basketball. Taylor's team was placed into the top bracket this session and looking at the rest of the teams we weren't very excited. But Saturday the girls REALLY surprised ALL of us by playing extremely well against the amazing Burbank team! We have never beat those girls and they usually BLOW us OUT OF THE GYM! One of their girls is literally the height of Will! She has ALWAYS been TALL but we all think she grew TONS this summer. Maybe it is just the fact that I have to look UP to a 5th grader that seems a bit strange.The Burbank team has only ever lost games to the Mabton Tournament Team. These girls are very good athlete's with a great coach! I don't mind playing them even though in the end the results aren't good. The Burbank girls have great sportsmanship and never once have our girls come off the court complaining of any of them being rude! Our girls played their hearts out on Saturday. At one point we were only down by 4 points but ended up losing by 9 points. Not bad AT all for their first game of the season. Way to go girls! Keep practicing and I know you will one day beat that team! We LOVE you ALL!!!
After teaching middle school for 9 years then taking a year off to be a SAHM I found myself back to work this year. I was hired to teach preschool! It was not as big of an adjustment as you might think...going from middle school to preschool. Most days my preschoolers acted more mature than my middle schoolers. ")
PEACE. It does not mean to be in a place where there is no noise, trouble or hard work. It means to be in the midst of those things and still be calm in your heart. ~Unknown
I've learned that sometimes when I'm angry I have the right to be angry, but that doesn't give me the right to be cruel.
Love your friends and family with your entire being: they are the most important part of your life!
I've learned that credentials on the wall does not make you a decent human being. If someone hurts you, betrays you, or breaks your heart, forgive them. For they have helped you learn about trust and the importance of being cautious to whom you open your heart to.
As Miss Mia sings: "If you're feeling mad, the first thing you do, is calm, calm down."
