The birds are chirping, the sun is shining, the snow has melted (at least on the valley floor) and the ball fields are showing signs of kids of all ages as they play their favorite spring sports. I love this time of year! I can’t wait to get out there and cheer for our athletes this spring! Anyone that knows me well is aware of my love for sports.

Hi there! Did you know there are only 73 days until MLB’s Opening Day? Anyone that knows me is aware of the fact that I am a crazy baseball fan. The winters are so long when baseball is scarce! Our neck of the words is covered in snow. It’s days like these that I come inside and create baseball art if I can’t be outside enjoying it! Play ball!
I love this quote! As we welcome the new year, it is the perfect time to reflect on the year we leave behind and the goals we plan to achieve in the year before us.
One of my favorite moments of 2016 was experiencing Little League All-Stars. Youth ball players all over the world dream of becoming an All-Star. Many of them get a taste of the beginning stages of the experience, but few teams actually make it to Williamsport for the Little League World Series. It is a long journey. Regardless of how far these teams make it in the summer months, I found that the lessons learned, the values instilled, and the experiences a ball player goes through are just as valuable as winning the championship title.
As a parent and crazy baseball enthusiast, I still find myself in awe of the example one of our local All-Star teams set last season. Moments before the first game began, a few of the team members, my son included, fell ill with a nasty stomach bug. I’ll spare you the details but my first reaction as a parent was that these kids couldn’t possibly play. However, I saw something in my son and his teammates that blew my mind. They weren’t going to let illness prevent them from playing. They worked too hard to give up on the chance to experience something as special as Little League All-Stars. Not everyone understands what it means to be a part of a team or the many lessons that come with being an athlete. Many of these boys had given up a large part of their summer and even missed family vacations for the chance to play baseball and represent their baseball leagues.
This illness somehow worked its way through much of the team. Sadly, they didn’t win either of their first two games and were eliminated in the first round. It would be easy to assume many things, but I couldn’t be a prouder parent and supporter of this team. It was amazing to watch a group of boys grow into young men and make decisions for each other rather than themselves. Their persistence and dedication meant much more than the final score.
My son and his teammates taught me many things. You may have obstacles, but the experiences that come with these obstacles can be teaching moments that will be with us for life. They help shape us into the people we want to be. They prepare us for what lies ahead.
In 2017 I plan to strive for persistence; persistence in business and persistence in life.
How will you be persistent in 2017?

What a great quote!
It was a lot of fun creating these images for these gals from the Spring Creek High School volleyball team. Wishing them great success as they continue their senior year and future endeavors!
Happy days are here again! Baseball is back! Wishing everyone a Happy Opening Day! (Especially Giants and A’s fans) 🙂
