Another Soccer Season in the Books

There is another soccer season in the books for the Zionsville Youth Soccer Association recreational league.  Mallory had her first run at it while Mason continued to enjoy the game, playing in his 7th season.  He will be trying out for the travel team at the beginning of June.

Never give up

If my children learn one thing, I hope that it is that they should never give up.  I want them to wake up every day wanting to succeed.  Sometimes they will fail.  For a while, we will be there to pick them up and dust them off.  Eventually, they will need to do this on their own.

Below is a video that captures the spirit of never giving up.

Graduation Day

It has been a long time coming (it seems) and yesterday it finally arrived.  I graduated with my MBA from Indiana University's Kelley School of Business.

The Kelley School make a fine production of it all.  There was too much food and not enough catching up between the friends I had made over the past two years.

Enclosed are a few pictures from the event.

Me prior to the ceremony.  The cords were courtesy of the Veterans Services Office.  All vets wore them for graduation.

It will be 10 short years before Mason walks in his high school graduation ...

... and only a few more after that for this one.

Noel and me before the ceremony.  She has supported me tirelessly through this.

A few of the proud graduates (Farooq, Amy, Brittany, Brian, Greg and me).

Get well, Drew!

Drew, one of my classmates, missed graduation tonight.  He had knee surgery earlier in the week.  The word is that he is in a lot of pain.

I hope he knows that he was with us in spirit.
