I've been meaning to post about this for quite some time..
But a huge CONGRATULATIONS goes out to my sweet KK! My dear husband has been coaching high school basketball for about 12 years now, and has always had a dream of coaching at the collegiate level. Last month, his dream became a reality. Kris was hired on down at the local community college to assist the men's basketball team. While the money is not coming in at an outstanding pace, it's a foot in the door and we're really pumped! It is so nice to see him reach his dreams and move forward in his passion. He really knows the game well (cripes, we watch EVERY FRIGGIN GAME on TV and we're in the gym for the entire winter) and he loves it. He was not feeling challenged at the high school level any longer, and when this opportunity presented itself, he jumped. He has been helping out already with recruiting and some off season open gyms.
And let me tell you, it has been really refreshing to watch the man in action. He is doing what he loves, and really loving what he is doing. He comes home like a little excited boy, and has a pep back in his step that I have not seen since he was the head coach at the high school. So yay for KK!
... and another bonus of this new job is that I think we are going to get Missy Pants into the childcare center offered at the college. Only students and staff may bring their kiddos there- it is said to be the best place in town! It is more of a children's learning center than anything- the providers are early childhood development students in their internships, so the learning would be awesome! I wrote the director today and am waiting to hear back from her on what sort of waiting list we will have to be on, but keep your fingers crossed because we really want her to be able to attend!!!!!
