Reality is Hard, but must be Done

After spending a weekend away from home coming back to reality is hard to do. I think the reason reality is so hard to deal with is because you left it behind when you left. You didn’t think about your work or your bills or anything else like that. Probably the hardest thing you had to think about was what you were going to cook for dinner or when you would allow the kids to play in the water.

Reality is what it is and while it’s hard to come back to, it’s a must. We have to do it at some point whether we want to or not so you might as well deal with it and come back with a relaxed frame of mind.

If it was hard for you to come back to, then you need to consider getting out more so you have more of those reality free days off and away. No matter how busy you are, if you plan properly and ahead of time you can make reality free days happen more often then not. Even if you did it two or three times a month it will be worth it in the long run.

Wyoming Cav’s game

We went to the Cav’s game last night. Chris worked the game and we watched it from the stands. It was a fun time for us. The Cav’s won 48-46 in overtime.


Chris was the equipment assistant to the Cav’s team last night. He helped set up the locker room and then clean up after it was over. In exchange he got into the game for free and had the best seats. He stood next to the Cav’s team and cheered them on. He was just a little ways down from the table that was knocked over during a play.

It was a very exciting game and one that made you sit on the edge of your seat. With seconds left on the clock the Cav’s scored and took the game into overtime. We won the game after we scored and got the 2 extra points.

Josh and Kevin convinced me to do a game with Josh. So we went on the field shortly after the 3rd quarter started. We had to ride a trike around 4 cones. I started and then Josh went after I was finished. Needless to say I didn’t do very good with it. I was worried about falling over on the corners so I went slow. I guess the announcer kept calling me ma’am and kept telling me I had to hurry. LOL! I had a player and the coach that were in my way so I had to go around them and the cones.

Josh did really well after he got past the first turn. He got off track and almost ran into the wall. It was a lot of fun and we’re glad we did it. For the time we spent on the field, they gave us McDonald’s shirts and two gift cards for free meals. Worth the time and embarrassment.

Here’s a picture for you to enjoy.


Way to go Cav’s players. We look forward to the game on Friday. Good luck!

Basketball and swimming

Our boys are once again keeping us busy. This seems to happen on a regular basis during the school year. In the summer they don’t do sports so it’s a nice time to relax.

Josh is in the middle of basketball right now. His team is currently undefeated and they are doing great! They have learned so much and their coach continues to teach them new things. They are coming together nicely as a team and have grown into a wonderful team.

The coach is always showing kids new things and encouraging them when they do something wrong or it doesn’t work. Here is a picture of just that. The coach is showing Josh how to do something that he did wrong in the game. Josh learned how to do it and was successful the next time he did it. Way to go Josh!


Chris is in swimming now and having a really good time. He wants to be on the swim team in the follow when he goes to high school. His instructor is showing him how to do things properly and he feels very good about it.

Here is a picture of Chris jumping into the pool.


We enjoy watching our boys in the sports they do. We love to encourage them and help them grow and improve.

Way to go boys!! Keep up the hard work. We’re proud of you.

josh-playing-connect-fourThis is a picture of Josh playing the game Connect Four. The funny thing about it is he used a stuffed Penguin as a leg for the game. LOL! I guess that’s one way to still play the game.
