slice of life story- day 1

Saturdays are Kerry's days. She is our 16 year old and much like her two older sisters did, usually has a sport practice, game or meet. I got to take her to basketball practice today. (Dad usually gets this pleasure.) I'm glad I got to go. I didn't know it but it was the last practice of the season and I wouldn't have gotten to scrimmage in the parents versus athletes game. Picture 20 kids and as many parents on a court at once. It was also good to see the parents, many of whom I wouldn't see regularly til next fall when our group of Special Olympic athletes will play soccer together. I realized today this team started out when most of the kids were eight years old and now they are teenagers! I realized our kids have played soccer and basketball together for the last eight years. We've gone from getting our kids to hold or dribble a ball to getting our kids together for a movie and pizza. Time flies.

Like I stated in my post I think all kids want to give thier parents a big THANKS for helping them be a part of sports and other extra curricular. I can't wait to have kids of my own and be part of that great journey---great slice!
