Having a positive attitude in sports!!

My son plays one or two sports during the fall, winter and spring. In the spring and summer, my children really do alot of sports! I encourage a positive behaviour!! I also encourage them to have fun and enjoy themselves!! I think that is very important... I also feel that teaching them to do their best, have fun and working and playing hard is very important. What drives me crazy is that some parents feel that winning for all children is important! I agree however, it's no big deal if they lose. It's a part of life, you can't win at everything! This will make your child stronger and have a great attitude in life! I also think that team sports are so important for children. This is where they learn and develope their social skills and their attitudes!

There are some really great information on this site!

Don't you love weekends??

I love weekends, especially in the summer with the sun so bright and the warmth of the air!!
I love weekends when the family and friends get together for a bbq and have music blaring !
It's so much fun!
This weekend will be great, Father's day and having family around! Thank God for dads and what they can do for families!
I still haven't had a chance to get my husband his gift but I know what he wants and he will certainly get it!!

I hope everyone enjoys themselves and has a great weekend! Here in Toronto, the weather is supposed to be wonderful!

Kids are so innocent!!

We just found out that Lukas' friend has a brain tumor. He is only 6 years old. The doctors tried to take out the whole tumor but couldn't. They took out 2/3rds of the tumor! The rest of it is still there because it is too close to the nerves! So, he may need to do radiation. I found out about it the night before surgery and ended up crying myself to sleep. You see, I grew up with the parents and nothing like this had ever happened before. I could not imagine what the parents are going through!! Their little baby... he has an 8 year old brother, had to go through an 8 hour surgery to get this thing growing in his brain! I prayed all day and all night and it did some good. Little Simon was not paralyzed or there was nothing else wrong. To boot, he was discharged just last night!!
I want to thank God for my little guys health and their well being! I also want to ask God to help my friends through this ordeal. I am also asking God to help any other family in such a state!! God is good and through Him we can overcome anything!!

What a week!! It's been nuts!!

It all started last weekend. On Saturday, I had a birthday party to attend in the morning for my son's friends Jordan and Trinity! Lukas certainly had a good time. While he was at the party, I quickly did some shopping at the Walmart Superstore close by! I picked up Lukas, rushed home, got ready for a baby shower. As I was unpacking the car from the morning, I realized I left a whole bag of meat groceries at Walmart which was a good 40 minute drive from my home. I called them and told them I would be back tomorrow for my groceries! I ran off to the baby shower and had a glass of wine and chatted with friends! Congratulated the new mom to be and came home. THen, said good night to the young ones and went to a birthday party!! Had a nice time. I probably didn't get home until close to midnight! So what a DAY!!
SUnday, I went to church, went straight back to Walmart to pick up the groceries and then off to work! I was busy at work.... Thank God it was only until 8 pm! Put the kids to bed, did some networking and off to bed.
On Monday, I tried to relax, clean, laundry, etc etc! Tuesday same... catch up day! Then Wednesday ... clean up, relax, laundry, play with the kids and work... came home from work and caught up to some networking. I also received an email from a friend... her son was diagnosed with brain cancer and will be going in for 12 hour surgery the next day. I cried myself to sleep. Her son was only 6 yrs old! Such a young boy!
Thursday is here! Took my son to school, prayed there and back and all day long. MEt with my church friends and prayed for my friends son! In the evening after dinner we found out that all went well! THANK YOU GOD!!! He will still have to do some radiation as they were only able to take out 2/3rds of the tumor! What a day and a week!!

June.... Spring is almost over and SUmmer is nearly here!!

I am looking forward to the warmth of the sun. The yelling and screaming of the children in the streets and the chirping and the nature letting us know what is happening in the world outside! God made so many beautiful and wonderful creatures! We just don't really get to hear them in the winter is this white, white world in Canada!!

Our summer is usually spent up at the cottage in the warm sun at the beach! My sons hair turns bleach blond and he looks like a little Californian surfer dude!! I used to have that gorgeous blond hair which has now turned to dark blond with streaks of gray.... Yeek!!
Then, the smell of hot dogs and barbeques and all sorts of great outdoors!! We're also looking forward to the hikes and the bike rides and the running after both boys! It will be a summer to remember... Both boys walking and having fun!!
