This blog represents my opinions and my opinions alone, and certainly doesn't represent the collective thoughts of any of the Boards or organizations that I serve on. Unfortunately I make all sorts of miistakes, I'm a picky eater, I can't sing and I just recently found out I have been spelling certain words in my vocabulary wrong my entire life. That being said, I still continue to muddle ever onward. Welcome.

Another Reason Why I Love Living Here, Part Two:

I want to thank all of the fantastic and dedicated coaches and volunteers of the Monona PeeWee Football organization. My son Augustus just finished his very first experience playing football in pads on the Falcons team and he loved every minute of it. His coaches were just the right mix of positive, firm, encouraging and knowledgeable. In this day and age when discipline can occasionally precede a frivilous lawsuit and little roughnecks can spiel off all their constitutional rights when they get into trouble, it is refreshing to see our kids respond positively and respectfully to adult direction and instruction. The coaches were wonderful in modelling good sportsmanship and teamwork.

I was so proud to have my parents come to Aug's first game at the high school. They were amazed to see the size of the crowd cheering on their teams, the fully stocked concession stand, the excitement on the players' faces and the obvious commitment of all of the adult volunteers. When I explained to them that the only cost to participate was $5 and that few coaches actually had children even playing this year, they were even more impressed! Monona PeeWee Football is an exemplary organization and I hope that all my kids will participate in the future, even my little Evelyn! Thank you for a great experience for my son!
