Basketball has been a struggle for me this year... kinda. I didn't realize how much high school boys basketball could really drain you in a night... and I'm just the assistant! Can't imagine what Rob does during the season (Rob Seat--former OC player/grad and head coach). I know that he was planning to go home and work on practice today... after last night's game. WOW! Eventhough I love basketball, the season, the competition... I've missed seeing my family. I need to do a better job of taking advantage of the time that I am home with them and doing a better job as a husband and as a dad.
Just saw the clock... it's 10 after 7... and I have a teacher's meeting at 7:30! I'd better get!

We have got some pretty sweet kids. Lindsay is just a growing little girl. Hard to believe that it's been almost 2 months since she was born! WOW! Means that basketball season is on the down-swing also. WOW! WOW!! Joel is a good big brother... he has been a really good boy and helps out around the house with his sister. Would be nice if he'd pick up the toys, though. Guess we'll have to work on that one.
Well... I'm going to close and get some sleep. Finally got all of my papers graded from last week and am done! Ah... education.

This year has started off very well for us in the Morton household. I have a wonderful wife, and 2 kids to start the year off... what could be better than that? God has blessed me and my family and I am so thankful to Him for all that he's blessed me with.
I'm also very blessed because our daughter slept thru the night for the first time last night!!!!! (mom is pretty happy too) 8 weeks into her life... and we think that she finally may have her nights and days flipped correctly! We can only hope and pray that this continues. :-) Lindsay is a growing girl... it's amazing to me how fast she's growing into a little girl/child. Reminds me of when I thought of Joel like that... and now I'm looking at my son going, "he's a little boy, now!"
Basketball season is going quickly for us at DC. We've got a record now of 4-7... but we've played a really tough schedule. The boys are working really hard this season and we're real proud of the season so far. We've lost about 3 or 4 games by less than 5 and we've been in every single game. Can't ask for more than that... but we'd sure like to finish a few of those.
Well... better run to bed. It's late and I must get my zzzzzzz's.
