Skills, Drills and Special Plays

I attended a skills drills and special plays workshop today with Trevor Gleeson who is the coach of the Perth Wildcats and I have to say that it was really great.
He has so much passion and knowledge, the session was fun and informative and very entertaining.
My only wish was that my son had attended the workshop with me he would have found it to be so beneficial and he would have loved it. 
Some of the drills and plays would be a bit advance for the majority of the boys on my team but not for all of them and certainly not for George.

Tomorrow at training I will try and introduce some of the things that I picked up tonight, hopefully it will help us going forward in the season. 

Grading games are now over and the season is set to commence. What our boys have above the rest of the competition is that they are all great mates, and when they play they play for each other. So they may not be the best team in their division or the most skilful, they certainly don’t have the best coach, but they have a bond which gives them an edge above the competition and sometimes that’s all it takes.
Go Bulls !!!

The miracle of life 

The miracle of life is just mind blowing!! Today I got to meet the newest members of our family two beautiful precious little princess, so perfect in every way. It brought back memories of my own children. It seems so long ago now that they were this little, this sweet and this peaceful.

Anyone who has teenagers will tell you that being a parent can be very very challenging at times, and it is so easy to forget that this self centred, self absorbed, grumpy person was once a tiny bundle of joy.
Today I had a flashback of when my babies were newborns, and it was lovely and sweet and for the teeniest tiniest moment I felt a little clucky.
   
 

Stranger danger at the boys school 

There was a pedophile hanging around my boys school today.  Apparently he approached some year 7 boys and the school thankfully notified the police and went into lock down.

The school did not notify the parents until after we had picked up the boys which at first I found concerning but I am assuming they did not want parents – like me – to panic and start calling the school.
It is very scary though to think that our children may not be safe around their own school.
