Lesson #1: I have got the best "village" of family and friends. Seriously. Now, I knew this before Chris was a head coach but the past 7 months has brought this to a whole new light. Our friends/family/church have constantly supported us. Not just by telling us they support us but truly showing us. I have friends who have kept Charlie for almost every game so that Caden and I could attend, a community group that blessed us with gift cards to Kroger/Wal-Mart because they know we have the **boys (when I refer to "the boys" I am talking about the basketball team:) over and they know how much high school boys eat, this same group of people (along with others from our church) came to many games and showed up at the regional tournament in such a way that people kept asking Chris and I who "all those people with the kids were," a Church that has welcomed the team with open arms, friends/family who can just read my mind and know that I absolutely cannot spend one more second by myself and come over and play. or take my kids. or clean my house. (seriously, those things all happened). I could go on and on and on about how awesome of a community we have! Thank you, thank you, thank you for loving us, not just with your words but with your actions.
