Little Baller

Monday, November 26th, 2018

Chantal decided to play ball in her last year.  She didn’t play last year and did Soccer and Volleyball.  They didn’t have a good team since being at DOC and this year they hit a sweet flow and got stronger and stronger as the year went along.  They won gold at a tourney as the season was coming to the crunch.  In LOSSA they won gold and they represented the region at OFSSA in London, Ontario.

I was super excited and pulled out the old songs mixed in with what they listen to and made a little mixtape.  I was super nervous for OFSSA since there would be some super strong teams.  I was at work and following on Twitter and YouTube which they had some difficulty streaming the games.

 

First game they came out and won 67-62 in a game that they took the lead by 10ish points and the other team chipped in and made it close at the end.  The next day they won again and they didn’t play that good and it was basically a even game at the end of each quarter.

 

 

In the third game which I could watch on YouTube at work… they got smoked by Mother Theresa who won OFSSA the year before.  The press killed them…. but what a great memory going to OFSSA to compete at a chance to go far into the Tourney.  Smiley is below with Chantal who was born on the same night at the same hospital.  I’m happy that they played together.  They had a banquet to start of the tourney and the two shots are from the festivities.

iThemba School, Cape Town South Africa

Tuesday, November 20th, 2018

At Lufthansa where I work we support iThemba School that is located in Cape Town, South Africa.  One of our offices is located in Cape Town.  Most of our staff does payroll deduction to support the school.  This year, one of my colleagues asked if I wanted to support the shoebox program.  So on behalf of me and my two kids we did so.  Some other people in my training class did so too and we did four of them.  These are the kids at the school that we helped.  Another colleagues had the chance to visit the school to help when she was in Cape Town working for a while.
