After a number of weeks of renovations, the ping pong ‘arena’ recently re-opened in the basement.
That means some ping pong must be played.
Tonight we had some of the old Brookswood gang over. Great to see Allan, Beau, Cam and Marshall.
I don’t know if I’m just getting shorter…but these guys are definitely getting taller as we approach the 1/3 mark of their grad year.
Of course we think about what this grad year would have been like with Chris…for Chris and for us. Looking forward to the future. US colleges? SFU? Lacrosse scholarships?
Those questions will never be answered…and it’s hard.
That being said, it’s fantastic to hear the thoughts, dreams and plans of these young men and others like them as they prepare for their next steps. Not that everything is clear yet. My goodness…I had no idea what to do after Grade 12…but you start making decisions, see where that leads and make another decision and keep moving forward.
To everyone I would encourage you that things start with dreams. Action (ie simple decisions) turn dreams into goals and goals into measurable tasks…usually on a daily and most certainly weekly basis.
Allan picked up his Chris Friesen memorial lacrosse shafts tonight and you see me and the guys in the pics below. Thanks to Max for being the photographer tonight!
Remember…it’s ok to not know where you’re exactly going. You just want to keep your feet moving.
THAT is advice that we are aiming to live every single day.
Great to see part of the Gang tonight!
