This morning after getting to work, I got a phone call from Dan's basketball coach. He was reviewing the stats for the awards assembly this morning and realized that he was missing the stats from 3 playoff games. When he added them in, Dan had a total of 1004 points. This was AWESOME news. In the history of stats in our school, there has only been one boys basketball player who has gotten to 1000 points. It was Dan White, who played when I was in school and he did this in 1981. Today we got to stand beside the next 1000 point Dan. He told me what time the presentation would be and invited me there for pictures.
OK...So there's a little mom pride going on here. But is was a great place to be. Part of the way through the season, we checked with the coach and we had an idea how close he was. And we added on points every game...and we knew when we were within 50 points... We didn't really want him to know and dwell on it. I'm doing some mom bragging here, but he's always been a kid who looks to see who's open. He passes to his team mates a ton and is happy when someone else has a good game. He is a leader and an encourager. I didn't want that to change by him being desperate to get those last 100 points.
Next year he will be headed to SUNY Cortland to play football. He is the boy who still kisses his mom every night before bed and after his games. There will be some adjustments for our house.
Proud of you Dan. For ALL of your talents.... Love, Mom
I enjoy many activities, but mostly I start things. A month of snowdays would help, but I may just start more things!! I am a mother, working part time for the DH and part time for our local Critter Fixers(vets)...hustlin' paperwork.
Wake up early, stay busy, rest when you need to, but always stay alert. Visit your favorite places each day. Scratch out a living. Routine is good; Plump is good. Don't ponder your purpose in life - your brain is too small. Accept the pecking order and know your enemies. Weed your garden. Protect your children fiercely-sit on them if you need to. Take them for walks, show them the little things and talk constantly. Make a nice nest. Share it with friends. Brag on your accomplishments. Don't count your chicks before they hatch. Protect your nest egg. Test your wings once in a while. Squawk when necessary. As you age, demand respect. Leave a little something for those who care about you. Chase Butterflies :o)
They are SO checking me out!!
