Date Night!

January 11, 2014

Corom and I finally went out tonight. Z (our foreign exchange student) went to dinner and a dance tonight and one of the track girls came over to babysit. We went with our friends the Fullmer’s to dinner…

This place was so good. We had a great time. We then went and saw a movie…

I went into the movie thinking I was not going to like it. I thought it was funny and entertaining… A good movie. It was nice to get out and spend time with Corom without kids. We have not done this in a long time!

We came home and our babysitter began to cry. She just found out that one of the students at school ended her life. It broke my heart to hear this. After working with the high school kids as a coach for 5 years now, I have seen so many of their insecurities, their weaknesses, and their desires to fit in. I have been there… We have all been there or we are going through it. It is hard! I also see a lot if good, too. We had a long talk in the car as I took her home. I am at a loss of words… I really struggled in JH and High School but I am who I am today because of it! It makes me want to reach out to those that are in need! Every new season (track and cross country) I have a talk with the boys and I always challenge them to ask the girls out that don’t get asked out on dates or dances. Then as a group I express the importance of befriending those that need a friend and those that are struggling. I know it has nothing to do with running but it has everything to do to bettering yourself and in the long run it will make you stronger as a person. Anyway… I know I am rambling on and there is so much I can say right now but it would just go round in circles. Life is good!!! It is hard at times (and in some cases, many times) but it is good! I have my Savior on my side and I know He is always there for me! Have a good night!

  1. You sound like the coach I wish all of us would aspire to be. Such a tough age. Those kids are so blesses to have you guiding them!

    • It is a tough age but it is also so rewarding and so much fun! I do appreciate your comments. You are an amazing person and I don’t even know you! 🙂 What you and your husband do with your sports program for young kids and with your blog is so great. You inspire and help so many people!
