Busy

Do you see my title up there? Busy...yep that would be Busy with a capital "B"...life is crazy around here lately!

  • the boys are back into their school routines.  They all love their teachers so that makes the idea of school much nicer!
  • Dudley joins us in just a few short days.  We are all very excited to have our little man here in his forever home!
  • Middleman's soccer team played really well in the St. Catharines tournament this past weekend, but we had some trouble with the parents...again...I have been so upset about this and am so angry and disappointed in the immature and disrespectful behaviour of a few of the parents.  They are complaining about their son not having enough time on the field.  In my opinion, this is something that should be discussed privately with the coach, not by screaming and cursing on the field, in front of all the kids, all the parents and all the other teams in the tournament.  These parents embarrassed the coach and the entire soccer club with their horrible actions.  This is a REP soccer team.  If they are not happy with the amount of time their son plays, they should put him on a houseleague team.  The coach needs to play his strongest players in important games and they need to come to terms with the fact that their kid is NOT a strong player.  My goodness, I have to let this go, but my heart really does go out to our coach.  He is a very, very good man who is fair and kind to all the kids.  He doesn't deserve the treatment he got this weekend.  He puts his heart and soul into this VOLUNTEER position.  Parents should be kissing his hand for all he does, not purposely embarrassing him.  And to add insult to injury, there is one mother on the team who plays both sides of the coin.  To several parents, she agrees that the offending parents were wrong, and yet to the offending parents, she sympathizes and says the coach is wrong.  You know what?  Pick a side and stick to it or shut your mouth...all you are doing is making things worse!  GRRR!  /rant off
  • Boy Oneder had a motorcycle accident yesterday in the schoolyard.  He was riding a pocket bike that the neighbour gave him with shorts and a t-shirt on.  He knows MUCH better because he is a dirtbike rider.  Safety comes first.  By the grace of God, he was smart enough to be wearing a helmet, so his face and head are still intact, but the rest of his body is a disaster.  He has 12 road rashes on his arms, legs, hip, shoulders, back and feet.  He is a complete mess and he is in alot of pain.  I hope he has learned his lesson, but I wish I could take away the pain.  Bless his heart.
  • Middleman's three week old Blackberry got dropped down the sewer last night.  He was outside playing soccer with the neighbs.  He had no pockets, so he put his Blackberry down on the grass...near the sewer...one of the neighbour girls picked it up and voila...drops it directly into the sewer.  We all stood and watched as he received texts before the lights burned out in the depth of the sewer.  I felt sick.  This was a replacement for the one he tried to clean with water when it got dirty from being dropped in the sand a few weeks ago.  So now, he will pay for a replacement with his own money.  He needs to learn the value of a buck and I refuse to keep replacing his stuff.  We'll see if that makes a differenence in how he treats his new phone.
Man, this ended up being a pretty negative post....but Dudley comes soon!!!!!!!  Happy Tuesday!
