Just an fyi ...

My oldest son is entered in the Cisco Netriders 2011 competition and we just found out that he has now WON the provincial phase (#1 in the Province!) and is now in the U.S./Canada Theater Finale!

In this phase the top individual from each state/province are now competing for 4 grand-prize trips to Silicon Valley in January!

He phoned us from CLASS to let us know, roflmao! He's really excited to have made it this far.

Had to share the news :)

You must be so proud of your son. You definitely gave him a great foundation. My parents who are in their 90's still brag about my brother who is almost 65. I think you have earned bragging rights.

Your getting close to softball or soccer for the girls and baseball soccer for the boys, not to much funner than sitting in a lawn chair watching your children having fun playing sports. I remember those days like yesterday. wait a minute what did I do yesterday, uh, oh, yea.



I have 3 kids in elementary school -- just want to get them safely to adulthood. So, CONGRATS, Beefy!

OOPS -- and YOU, Marty!!!

How proud you & your wife must feel, I remembeer how proud I was & am of my son when he made it into the Australian Softball team & played in the World Championship in Newfoundland, the 2 weeks we spent there making new & wonderful Canadian friends plus the Aussies winning the championship was superb & so many wonderful memories, I know what it took for my son & his team mates to reach their goals, now he is all grown up & in the Australian AIr Force & about to go for the 2nd time to Middle East & all I want to do is go with him & hold his hand, but we have to let them grow up & be independent, but it is so hard as parents to let them go & follow their dreams & destiny, God keep them all safe

And you nailed it, Catherine . . . we raise them to be independent & self sufficient, and then - doggone it! - they ARE! And they fly the coop! ;)
