Life as a KNIGHT

Sometimes I still can't believe we are no longer living in the DFW! I am so proud of the kiddos and how well they handled the transition to our new home. They love their new schools and our new neighborhood which I call Suburbia. :) It has been so nice being able to spend time with our family more often.
My season started in early August and now there are only a few weeks left. Where does the time go? I was nervous and excited to meet my new team. Had no idea how they would respond to my coaching style and philosophies. I was so close to my team at my old school and knew that they understood me and trusted in me. Would that be the case at Episcopal? I am confident in what I do but you never know how new surrounding will be.  I can happily tell you that after 3 months I absolutely adore my girls. It's almost like being a don't stop loving your other children when you have more. :) I still keep in touch with my old players and look forward to seeing them at the SPC tournament. Thank goodness they forgive me for leaving them! :) My new team has worked so hard for me all season and has listened to every word I said ...ahem or yelled. They have improved so much and I hope they realize how proud I am to be their coach.
I was also nervous to start a new job because I would be working with new people. I think that I am easy to get along with but that's my opinion! :) Thankfully the coaching staff is awesome and fun and most importantly, professional. They work hard, care about the kids and set a good example for their athletes. One of them has also become my very dear friend. Now that's a blessing!!
Sometimes I think back to last spring when I was making the decision to change jobs and wonder what if....but then I quickly realize that God loves me so much that he created this special plan just for me and my family. I miss my friends and my sweet Saints team but know they're in good hands.
I feel very blessed to have a team of 13 girls that want improve and continue to work hard. I am thankful for my wonderful coaching staff that helps me keep it together. Looking forward to building this program with all of you. GO KNIGHTS

Rombeau Tennis Family of the Year

Rombeau Boys...Charlie, John, Bill and Jim

My blog has undergone a facelift! I had a long post written up but unfortunately I forgot to click "save" and it all disappeared. as soon as I get back from my game, I will try my "family update" again. I rude of me to keep you in suspense! :) For now I will leave you with some old school pics of the Rombeau family. When my Grandpa Lee wasn't delivering babies and my Nan wasn't at home cleaning up after four boys, they were at the La Jolla Beach and Tennis Club playing tennis. All of my uncles were very talented at the sport. What handsome young men they were! :) 

Hope you enjoy my new blog. Have a great day....GO KNIGHTS!!
