She Knows Who She Is

*Update


Thank ya'll so much for your support. It means the world that ya'll care about the success of my kids.

Despite a few jitters, Lamb conquered the lunch room and did herself proud! Her loving daddy was there to cheer her on. There was a bit of a miscommunication on how to preserve this accomplishment. I wanted it recorded, but he heard "take pictures." So that's what he tried to do. He didn't want to use a flash so the pic is a tad blurry/grainy. But you can still see her doing her thing!

As it turns out, it wasn't a contest so much as just singing for the "diners" entertainment. There were no judges nor a winner picked. Everyone got a Timberwolf Idol crown for participation. Lamb was the only one to chose a classic song. The other 12 or so contestants picked current songs.
Gosh, she amazes me.

There's a batting update too. Big D is the type of dad who will do whatever is in his power to help. And if he doesn't know, he'll research. The other night, he found a website where a coach wrote about Bear's exact problem. All Bear has to do is hold his bat differently. It's going to look a little weird, but the coach says it has solved many a boys' problem. Bear & Big D haven't gotten to really work on it. They did test it out after school today and lo & behold, Bear hit the ball on his 1st pitch. Of course, it's going to take some practice & adjustment. Bear is optimistic and that's all we need right now!

Thank ya'll for your words of encouragement and thoughts!! So much appreciated!

Lamb, I think you're an absolute star for getting up and singing in public.

Bear, I can tell you as a competitive sportsman that the grip is crucial. Try out different grips for a couple of stints each time and see which one a) produces the best results and b) is the most comfortable.

D, I loved your comment on the honey-bear post!!

D - tnks for the spate of comments. Glad you liked the rainbow story and the ``family dynamics'' that went with it!

I'm intrigued, too, by your submarine connection ....

david mcmahon said...

Wow - three generations of one family in the Navy. I see what you mean about the sub connection!

Goodness, you should be so proud of that Lamb of yours. What bravery. (And talent, of course.)

I KNEW she would do great! I'm so proud of her - I could NEVER get up and sing in front of people like that - in 8th grade or even now!! She is awesome!

And yay Bear, too! I knew he'd figure it out!

Thank you peeps! Those kids never cease to amaze me. God certainly gave me some spectacular people to raise. I am very proud. The nerve Lamb has and the dedication Bear has have NOT been inherited from me.

Thanks David for the advice. I will certainly pass it on to Bear.
