I know that everyone has seen a GAZILLION pics of Sella (well all my kids doing activities) But.... these are different haha

1st I didn't take them.. I was in Germany watching Emma compete.

2nd Sella didn't play!! She had been battling shin splints for weeks.

3rd Sella told her coach...I'M COACH TODAY...Steve tells me that I should be proud... she gave a great inspirational pep talk...her team mates were down because they have relied on Sella to score her normal double digits.

Sella finished the season with Success.... She wanted to make sure every team member scored...and....the players on the team who had been forced to play by their parents would end up LOVING basketball.
I wish it was easier for me to caption pics... the way I like to! Sella on bench.. she takes great care of her sneakers... these are her coushy shoes for shin splints! Sella tells the story about when she played YMCA bball and her bball idol (at the time) said... This how you take care of your shoes or they will loose their GRIP?? Next pic.. Sella running her drills and always teaching. last pic.. Sella with a CLIP BOARD??

Let's do Lunch

Let's do Lunch...ha ha yes that would be Kim On the phone...I know that my family alone is entertaining enough for a 3hr lunch. Since moving to Italy my Lunch's have slowed down.. well you could also say that our lives have slowed down also. My most missed lunch is the emergency lunch...... lunch 12 @ ______ be there.... and to know that we will all show up. I'm sure you can hear Steve saying... "Can't you just talk about this at one of your Lunch thingy's?"
I must give some shout outs to the lunch crews...
THE 2julie's& jeanette&leslie&kim and to the blue eyed waiter who always gave us FREEdesserts.
THE 505.ABQ.Crew AKA Mothers Maffia ....The saying ..."It takes a Village to raise a child"(please tell me that someone other than hillary clinton said that) is an understatement for this group...... there are the occasional comrades who are seeking the wisdom of the MM's haha... many great and profound miracles have happend... call them what u want but I say miracle. Those of us who have moved away can still. via get in on the great things that come out of those pow wow's.
The lunch crew here..... is still in the development stages...although you have your TLA-BUDDIES (tempory living arrangments) the people who arrived around the same time as you, live in the same hotel, going through the same things at the same time...SO basically friends by circumstance...and it just so happens I have some great TLA buddies.

"P" Girls and the Boy

Check out some Pauling attitude.
