End of the year...

Some of my crazy basketball/track girls...

My best friend Raquel Cramer and I...

Another crazy basketball girl...

One of the first girls I ever it!

One of my students...she didn't want to be in the group shot

Funny picture of my students with me

Cute picture of my kids...not so much of me :)

One of my students is SO tall....his elbow can rest on my head haha..
Well my first year has come and has been such a blast and such a learning experience. Through all of the triumphs and struggles, I have realized that I truly am where I am supposed to be. These kids have taught me so much this year, and the people I have met on the faculty have been amazing! I CANT WAIT until next year!! Hope all is well...have a great summer!

Ok this past weekend was a week of...all sorts of emotions. I went from being sad...and back to tired again. It was a fun filled weekend. My high jumper who came into the competition ranked 7th jumped his personal best of 6ft 6in to place 2ND IN THE STATE!! I was so proud of him. These pictures are of him jumping. The other pictures are just some of our 4x400 girls relay team, and me and Raquel..just being us. I loved the experience I got coaching track, and I am so thankful for these athletes who helped me remember daily why I coach.

We recently went to the Region track meet....not expecting much to happen, considering there are some dominating track teams in our region, we were happily surprised. Our girls team took 3rd and our boys took 4th. With 17 of our athletes qualifying for state!! That is amazing!! I couldn't be more proud, and we have had SO much fun! These kids seriously are a MAJOR blessing in my life!! Here are some pictures from the meet that I took...or was in haha. Hope all is well with everyone.

A new decision...

Well life has been interesting lately...School is winding down and with that sports are winding down as well. With that has come a lot of thinking, and as my brother Matt says.."you think too much". Which I agree I do. Anyway, I had some interesting things happen lately that I wanted to share. I have been struggling lately with the decision to continue coaching basketball or not. I have decided not to coach basketball next year, instead I will just coach cross country and track. I feel so great about this decision. It is whole life has been family coached basketball so naturally I was supposed to coach basketball...but turns out maybe im not. Atleast not for this next year. I have felt such peace after making this decision and am so grateful for the people in my life that love and support me no matter what! I will miss the girls terribly, but I know that they will still stop in my room to say hi, I will still coach them in cross country and track, and I honestly feel like I have more of an effect on their lives outside of basketball. Anyway...that is my latest update. I hope all is well with everyone, SUMMER IS COMING!!!
