    Our grand daughter is in NOLA for the party. She never seems to stand still for very long. Oh, to be in your twenties again.

    Got to U-Haul, turns out it was them calling. It was an hour after my reservation time, and they were calling to see if I still needed the truck.
    So when we arrived, they had NO trucks.
    So I just basically took Nanilei to breakfast and we just did some cleaning at the old house.
    Reserved truck for tomorrow.
    We'll try again.
    Grrrr...
    I ignore any number I donít recognize as well. My thinking is if they want to reach me and it isnít a sales pitch theyíll leave a voicemail which Iíll check right away.

    Bummer. Hope all goes as planned today.

    Last night James rec league team scrimmaged a very good 8th grade team. They were a little intimidated by the physicality, quickness and jumping ability at first and lost the first quarter by 8. But then they won the second quarter by 4, tied the third and then lost the 4th by about 6. They played one extra period and lost by a bucket.

    The 8th grade parents were pretty impressed and a couple of them were talking about seeing the boys play today. We’re playing the only other undefeated team. Should be a good game. They beat us in a preseason tournament by one. The 1st quarter of that game their team hit 7 three pointers and we were down 15 right away. That’s a crazy amount of 3’s for kids this age. We came back to take a 2 pt lead with 8 seconds left and one of their kids made about a 35 footer to beat us.

    So exciting. Hope our kids take care of business today and the game is boring

    I was a little disappointed in James’ play. He played scared/intimidated and it showed. He did okay but hesitated where he normally wouldn’t have with passes and shots.

    I told him ‘he’s a much better player than he knows and he should always play with confidence in his abilities. Doubting your abilities leads to mistakes and missed opportunities on the court.”

    He’s so easy going, I wish he had more aggression/cockiness on the court but basketball is just a game and I know I’m lucky to have a kid with so much empathy and compassion for others.

    I was super competitive in sports and it served me well in other parts of my life.

    I’m hoping he develops a little bit of that.

    In the back of my mind there is always a quote from Chris Rock going through my head when it comes to James.

    "I'd rather have the nerdiest kid in school, than the coolest kid in prison."

    Back from the desert. It was gorgeous (just cold at night) and so great to get away. Did lots of hiking and reading. It was awesome.
