    Well, my son made it to state. He got the gold in the 200 meter walk. What's really nice is the two boys that live with him are also going to state. They are going to have so much fun.

    If you get a chance, volunteer, you won't find any more rewarding job in your life.

    I did that some years back. It was some of the most rewarding, amazing time of my life.

    Give your son a high five. He rocks! :)

    WOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!


    That's great! How fun, your son and his friends will have a GREAT time!

    I LOVED being a coach at the State Level!

    They held it at Indiana State University, one year Bobby Knight spoke to the athletes, another year Chuck Norris!

    The athletes and their families, and the coaches and volunteers have the BEST time! It's something none of you will forget!

    Tell you son EZ sends him a high five!

    As I stated in the pos rep... I don't care what our argument differences are or our political differences are.. that is absolutely GREAT and all the props/praise/kudos in the world to you, your son, and your family
