Road Trip

My family covered over 1600 miles this past week driving to Carbondale, Colorado for my nephew's high school graduation. With a 3 and 8 year old, Todd and I had everything we needed to keep the kids entertained; drawing books, toys, movies, snacks. Then we reached Four Corners (5 miles out of town) and Brooklyn asked, "Are we there yet?" Highlights of the trip: 1) Carbondale: My home town is set at the base of the majestic Mt. Sopris. It's breaktaking and I will never take it for granted. 2) Friends: We stayed with Karen Crownhart's family whom I have known for 30 years. Karen still continues to give me a hard time about my cooking- at one time I didn't know you need to drain the water out of the tuna can before mixing it. On the way back to Bozeman we stayed with friends in Logan, Dave & Sue. Our team will be tasting their home cooking on November 30th, the day before we play at Utah State this year. Note- palyers better not try the radio game against Dave and I. He is pretty darn competitive. 3) Family: My nephew, 18 year old Tyler Hall, graduated from high school. Sitting under the 3 Girl's Basketball State Championship banners, I watched Tyler blow kisses to the family. When he received his diploma he jumped up on the principal and hugged him with arms and legs. We are SO PROUD OF YOU Tyler! It was so good to see my parents, brother, sister, and our extended families. When you get busy in life please take a breath, think about what is important, and call someone you love to tell them how much they mean to you. I am truly blessed and 30 hours in the car gave me a great deal of time to reflect on the many wonderful people in my life. Coach Bin
