Its been a while since i have been on here! Several big things have happened - first, I passed my series 7! It didn't take long to get my materials in to start studying for my series 66 - i will be taking that test March 6th! Yikes! I am hoping that i will pass this test the first time. It took me two attempts before i passed my 7.
Crandall is in District games now. They have a chance to tie for first place if they win the rest of their games.. which is predicted to be fairly easy to do. So i hope that goes well for them. :) Casey and I will be going to see the High School State Championships in Austin again in March - we are excited to go for the 2nd year. And we get to go shopping!! It is the one time of the year that we get to go splurge :)
Tyler has had the flu all week - he has stayed home all week with me while i worked at home. It has been quite the messy situation. I feel so bad for him - he is so helpless. :(
Well it is about time for me to go to bed. I'll write more frequently.

Changing the Pace

I decided to change the idea of my blog from the general life of my family to "a day in the life of being married to a coach." Over the past four years I have really tried to decipher the mind of my husband, a basketball coach.I have come to realize that I will never understand how my husband's brain is wired... especially since i do not come from a "sports background." I have had a much harder time understanding with the differences in the way we think. I know that i am not the ONLY coach's wife out there... so I am going to write about the daily life and my love for a basketball coach for anyone that may feel the way I do. I want to be able to look back over the years and see the time traveling, the laughter, and the frustrations... because that is what makes our life so interesting and so worth it.

It has been FOREVER since i have last written. This are still going well! Just got back from Crandall's Christmas Classic in Bridgeport Texas. We placed 2nd out of 16 teams. Lost in the 4th (last) game by about 15. The boys played hard and didn't give up which was nice to see. I can't describe how amazing it is to watch Casey coach basketball. To see how we have grown the past 4 years - We pushed each other through school - persevered through job hunting, moved to a new city - and here we are, working and raising our son. It has been all worth it and will continue to be worth it as the years go by. The weather is finally getting a little colder here. I was really enjoying the 60+ degree weather ... but now that it is January, i suppose it is only fair that the weather decrease in digits for a little while. Ty had his 4th birthday 12/16/11 - I can't believe how much he grows each day. Casey and I are really having to watch what we say - he is such a little sponge! He also finally learned how to ride his bike! I still have to push him from behind occasionally - but he actually gets the motions of spinning his feet in circles! Next thing we know, he'll be driving. Oh boy. I take my Series 7 test in 10 days. Ah, i just realized how soon that is. I still have 5 more chapters to study for, and then i will take several full tests before the real one on the 12th. The test contains 250 questions over a 6 hour period. I think it is more of a test of my endurance rather than the content of the test. I already took the test once, made a 66 -- needed a 70 to pass. Effective Nov. 7, 2011 the passing score is a 72. I really hope i pass.... Well, i hear the child destructing his room, which means that nap time is over...
