I have been a way for a while, busy at work, busy with the family, coaching baseball and working on myself. I also found I did not have much to say. Even now as I sit here typing I am looking for a topic to write about.
In my last blog entry I wrote about a new kind of peace and the same thought holds true. I have thrown myself into my kid’s future and have worked on how I can make their lives better and set them up for their future. I have always thought this way before but now I am acting on my thoughts.
The thing is, it’s a good feeling to be doing this and I am excited about their futures. I have two wonderful kids and even though my wife and I are experiencing all the normal bumps in the road you get with young adults it has been one of the greatest experiences of my life.
My daughter has recently started working with a swing coach, she has a natural smooth as silk swing with a golf club and having a professional that understands the correct way to develop a young person is really going to open up her ability. I am so excited to be able to provide this experience for my daughter and possibly expose her to what golf can bring not only physically but mentally will be fun to watch.
Maggie had back surgery just this past summer and she now is ready to pursue this gift she has been given. It is exciting for my wife and I to see her be a part of something and build her confidence.
It’s funny how you can raise two kids the exact same way and have two totally different products standing before you. My son will try anything and is not afraid to compete, they both hate to fail but one will be less likely to participate than the other.
I guess what I am saying is that I have always enjoyed being a father but right now I may be enjoying it more than ever and that is a good feeling.
As far as my workouts are concerned they continue, now I have a new partner in the garage. My son has decided its time to work out and has begun getting up with me at 6:00 am each morning. I have created a bit of a hybrid for the both of us. It fits around the baseball schedule and will help him with speed and strength and not leave him tired for the weekend tournament schedule. I am once again enjoying the company each morning and sharing additional time with him.
