AND THEN THERE WAS ONE....

Yesterday was the end of an era for me and my wife.  For 10 years we have made the trek to the beautiful Baylor Campus and watched our three kids run cross country meets.
We have been there on rainy, cold race days and burning up sweltering days.

Yesterday afternoon was a gorgeous Fall Day with just a nip in the air.  It was Chipper's last race at Baylor (he still has the regional meet in two weeks in Pickens County).

Amy and I were a little nostaligic.  Thinking back to great races our kids have had and the bad ones.

The thing God reminded me of-and kind of patted me on the back, I feel, was that the most important thing was......We were there!

That is so important!  I want to encourage you......Be there for your kids and their activities......they are so important to them.  It won't be long and you will be looking back over "10 years of races"

I went through the same thoughts you had a little over a year ago. My son played his last football game and when I was leaving the stadium I started thinking about all of the days spent taking him to practice and Coaching him and then watching him play in High School and in College it all started to sink in that this chapter in my life was closing. I encourage all of the parents to cheerish every moment with your son or daughter while going through youth then Middle School then High School and for some College Athletics. I know my son appreciates it very much. Also dont take the fun out of it for them. Don't talk about the game in the car when coming home. Don't get too high or too low with wins and losses. In the long run wins and losses does not matter at all. Just the relationship you have with your child and going through that chapter in your lives together. Don't mess it up because it only comes around once.
