Upwards Basketball Season Starts

Here the kids are ready for their first games. Sydney is on the Angels team and I am her coach. We had to be at the church by 8:15 so this was early. Daniel is on the Wildcats Team and Stefan is head coach and I assist him. His games are either at 11 or 12. Yes this means that our Saturdays are pretty busy but we are home by 1:30 and ready to have family time. We also love coaching.

In preparation for the upcoming Upwards Basketball season I gave Daniel his signature mohawk. Kenny wanted one as well, but I just spiked his hair verses shave it like Daniel. I think they look so cute.

Happy New Year 2013

Well the new year is upon us and although the last couple years have been both challenging and exciting I still feel like my direction gets lost about half way through the year. So this year I am determined to stay the course. A couple years ago I saw a couple of my friends picking a word to live by dwell on for the new year.. to help them keep focused. I have wanted to do this for the past two years but have delayed and procrastinated and well I never did it. This year I started thinking early and I have come up with one.. Trust. I need to fully put my trust in the Lord. I believe in Him and know Him as my Savior, but I think sometimes when the going gets tough.. I lose my focus.. I feel alone and I lose the trust I have in Him to carry my burdens to direct my path.. that He is indeed bigger than my problems. I was going to choose "Hope"... but I feel that Hope is a HUGE part of trust... and how can you hope if your dont first trust. So I am excited to see how the Lord uses the word Trust in my life in 2012.. I hope to blog about the things I learn as well..
