Dear Sports Parents, How Do You Do It?

I have sixteen, almost seventeen year-old twin nephews, Collins and Carter. They were born when I was in high school and my sister and the boys lived with us my junior and senior year. I couldn't love them anymore if they were my own children. It's safe to say that I was pretty much there for everything... midnight diaper changes, first steps, many hospital stays battling RSV, uncountable baseball, basketball, football games and their favorite, golf. I'm pretty sure that the boys were swinging plastic golf clubs from the time they could stand up, ha! And, they were good at golf from the beginning.

Today, their high school golf team played in the regional tournament, vying for a spot at state. Today, I was reminded how tough losing can be. And, today, I was introduced to the inevitable pain of being a twin.

Thunderbirds Dedicate Owensboro Air Show Performance To Fallen Tri-State Soldiers

I knew that I would really enjoy the time I was going to get to spend around the United States Air Force Thunderbirds, but I underestimated how impressive they would be. Sure, the jets and show are awesome, but it was their general demeanor toward our town that was so memorable.

Chad and I were able to spend time with them before his flight Thursday and I was overwhelmed by how polite, humbling, generous and gracious they were with everyone they interacted with.

But, it was what I saw circulating on Facebook this evening that brought tears to my eyes.
