On Friday night, The 14th of January, I got a phone call from Coach V. telling me that Fred had been in an accident while removing snow from his roof, and that he was enroute to Billings on a helicopter flight. He assured me Fred would be okay, but that he might need me to help out some. Monday morning came, and he had arranged with another coach in town to help out with some of the practices, but wondered if I could help with some practice and coach the games. So of course Scott and I talked about it and decided we could help out.
For the first time since I met Scott, I missed out on the Robert Burns celebration, because I had to coach a game, and have had about 7 since then. Scott has been calving out the heifers, save a few nights when I checked them when I got home from a late bus trip. Plus he's been watching kiddos. Ben and Alli have been troopers too, as they usually come in to MC for Haley's freshman games and then jump in with Dad and head home to help watch heifers.
It's really been enjoyable... funny how the sights and sounds of the gym haven't changed these past 5 years...there are just different girls on the floor. The Cowgirl basketball program has had much success over the years, and it's a lot of fun to be a part of! Ironically it also makes me thankful that I have the opportunity to be home full-time with my kids and my husband, and able to help with the day-to-day parts of our operation. It also makes me really admire all those moms out there who work full time and be a mom full time too. It sure makes me tired!!

For those of you who missed out on the Bobby Burns celebration last Saturday night, here's a taste of it. Scott and Joel Woods put together a new piece which incorporated an old favorite with a new tune at the end. I might be a little partial, but I sure think it's great! I didn't get to see it live either, as I have been called out of retirement to help coach the JV team at the high school in Miles City. More on that later. Haley graciously recorded this, so the whooping you hear is her... considering this is her rookie recording, I think she did pretty darn good!
Anyway, enjoy it! We missed all of you snowbound folks!
