    Two weeks ago, I blew it as a dad. At Disney World. Oh, I did all the vacation “dad jobs”: navigating security checkpoints with four kids and a stroller, changing diapers in airplane bathrooms, loading vans, hauling luggage, playing in the pool with my kids, you name it. But I neglected something vital. To make it worse, it’s something I’m constantly preaching to Kossuth parents.

    Never underestimate the power of affirmation and encouragement. My friend Trent and I recently ran a race together. We signed up for two different distances, so our competitions didn’t coincide. He finished well before I did, so I assumed he had left. It was a cold and windy day after all. As I neared the finish line I was completely spent, ready to give up. I had given it my all and was in quite a lot of pain. I had about half of a mile left but it felt like twenty miles were ahead in my mind. Then, out of the corner of my eye, I saw Trent. He cheered me on. He reminded me that the finish line was just around the corner. I picked up my pace. I thought, “I can do this.”
