Basketball games, lacrosse games and practices, Eagles football game……..yes it’s been a busy start to the new year for us! And in some ways the busy stuff is a mixed blessing, the kids and I are so caught up in the day to day chaos, that we don’t have time to focus on the perils of living with Alzheimer’s!
We had the best start to the new year, we got FREE, yes FREE tickets to the Eagles vs the Redskins game. A dear friend worked it out for us, and the seats were the best! No nosebleed section for us….phew!
Now some of you may be shocked to see me in an Eagles jersey, I know this may be hard for some of you, knowing that one of the first songs I learned as a child was “Hail to the Redskins!” I grew up in the DC area, I grew up with a disdain for the Eagles, Giants and the Cowboys. But this day was one of those moments in life where you look beyond the entrenched football rivalries and you support your husband! He has been a long time Eagles fanatic and this day was for him! 🙂 It was a fun day, the weather was ideal for Jan 1st and hubs team the Eagles won!
Madi has also been busy becoming buff girl…..she is doing a strength and conditioning program for Lacrosse and playing indoor lax. Unlike Tyler, Madi has floundered a bit in finding a sport she loved. She just started girls lax last spring, but has really come to LOVE it! And it’s neat for all of us to see those skills continue to grow and improve!
Tyler is having a blast playing hoops this year, and I must say Curt is enjoying every game. He sits near the court and takes pics while chatting with his new lady friend. Now don’t take that the wrong way, his lady friend is one of the player’s grandmas. But the two of them have forged a fun friendship this season. Curt took this pic of Ty (#30) stuffing the leading scorer in the league! Ha not in our house! (ok,sorry competitive mom moment, I’m moving on now!)
So life for us is good, not always easy, but good.
Our local basketball parents club had a slogan a few years back…it simply said
“It Ain’t Easy”
This year the slogan is, “Every Day, Every Play”
Yep, we work hard every day, it ain’t always easy, but we press on!
