KATHY: No, my biggest job starts when the paying job ends. I get the kids to all of their activities and hopefully some food inside of them before the end of the day. I love the Middle School age. I love coaching and doing what I do. But there is one thing I hate and it happens every year. I hate having to tell 7th and 8th graders, and most of the times their Moms and Dads too, that they didn’t make the team.
Talk about being cut from a team, how many of you have ever been cut from an athletic team? Lift your hands. Come on, be honest. Many people have been cut and that is not fun. Talk about cutting, that is a pressurized thing. You are dealing with the lives of the students and their families. I know that Paul, being a CEO, you have dealt with having to cut people before. That is not fun, is it? And John, in the banking business. Anyway, how do you, Kathy, keep the balance, how do you try to involve your children into things and spend time with them?
KATHY: I have known all of our lives together that Brad has been driven and obsessed with his work. Our family time revolves around sporting events. We go to all of his basketball games during the season. Since Tuesday is a school night it usually means a concession stand supper. The kids think that is just great. On Friday nights, after the game we will include Brad and go out to eat. During holiday tournaments where are times when we can stay in a hotel with the team. So the kids look at that as a vacation.
One of the things I have learned from my research is that successful companies, churches, schools, etc. have now and then an open house for families. I think it is important to include your children in what you do. My Dad and Mom did that for my brothers and me and it really, really helped.
