Today was a day that started early and finished late…but not with the usual kinds of busy-ness. It was a day full of sports! The day started with Caleb’s football game at 9 am and his Pee-Wee team staying undefeated with a 20-6 win. I had to leave that game before it ended for a two hour drive to Sterling, Illinois to see Josh in his cross-country meet. And Josh made it worth the trip. He set a new personal record by running a 17:06 3-mile time and getting a medal for being a top finisher (see pic). After the award ceremony at the cross-country meet I hurried back to Naperville so I could run the first practice of the season for my 5th grade YMCA basketball team. I love basketball and coaching is like therapy…fun! But I still wasn’t finished. The last sport of the day would be the most challenging – trying to help my daughter Amy negotiate the purchase of her first car. As this day comes to an end I think we got her a good deal on a good car (more to come). All in all, a sporting day!
