I call Uncle!!!

To get off of the baby train for a minute. My uncle, Doug, found out this week that he got the job of head football coach at a highschool in my hometown. He has worked there for 17 years and has always helped coach until last year when he took time off to take care of his dad who is fighting cancer and to watch his daughter play her first year of college soccer. The newspaper back home wrote a great article on him and I just had to share it with you all. I also have another uncle, Paul (my moms brother), who is the head baseball coach at the same school. Paul was the pitcher and quarterback at Liberty University, the school Seth and I both graduated from. He was a great player, one of the best LU has ever had (yes I am bragging!). My papa taught him how to play sports and the most incredible part about that is my papa has been on crutches since the age of 4, due to polio. I love my family so much and am proud to link this article :) I have some sports fanatic uncles I believe!!!

Please keep Doug's dad in your prayers as he is fighting cancer. He was taken to the hospital in the middle of the night and they are doing everything they can to help him right now. Not a Valentines Day they were hoping to have.

Uncle Doug was a receiver for your uncle Paul during their football time at LU. Lots of TD passes! I'll have to send you a picture of your cheerleading days with Donna back then. c.1980's.
And... about when that baby's coming........?
Like Camy said, "KK You just need to be patient!"
