SELECTION SUNDAY

This is a day in our home that often gets counted down till! Quote from Skylar, "6PM baby you know where I'll be!" The rest of the evening is followed by numerous phone calls, much reflextion and contemplation, several hours reviewing the teams past on the Internet and then the beginning of filling out the BRACKET. Anyone relate? However, our intelligent 4 year old has laid on the guilt and put things into perspective. Sky is often rushing home from church to catch the end of a game and Ky has learned how into sporting events Dad gets. Well, last week I was interested as well since Duke was playing and Kylee was apparently being ignored or not in the mood to play on her own. She then stated, "It's more important to take care of your kids than to watch a boring sports show!" Last night when all of this was going on again she reminded Dad about what she told him last week since we of course made a big deal out of it and now when Sky needs a perspective check I can have Ky do my dirty work...always sounds better coming from your kid than your wife. Don't get me wrong I love Sky's passion and excitement for sports especially March Madness! Things would be a little better if I could get him to cheer for DUKE with me but that is just never going to happen so those games will always just get a little heated in our home. Also, Ky does enjoy watching sports hear and there and often asks what color Dad is cheering for, she just isn't in for the 3 hour event. "Dad, you are always watching football!" :)

Will Sky figure out a way to get off work early Thursday and Friday...I'm sure we all know that answer is a YES! At this point I need to say, GO DUKE and bring on the MARCH MADNESS!

haha, that is so funny, and sounds very familiar. March madness is a big deal around here, especially since Jeff is a HUGE Duke fan, and has been since he was young. He had Hailee trained at a very young age to say "go Duke". Justin is working on it. Anyway, good luck with the madness:)

Dude, what a great time of year!! I'm sure I'll understand the family stuff sooner or later :) but Tyler and I were just having this conversation today about March Madness being the single-most exciting sporting event of all time! It's just so big and gets so dang exciting! I'm sure I'll be on the phones with you guys much over the next 2 weeks :)
