NEW CAMERA ALL PICTURES to DEC 09 238

My kids will hate that I have included a picture!

In A Nutshell:  It is always a good thing when your initials fall in perfectly with your philosophy of life. Welcome to LB Living Better. I am LB, Lisa Bates and this is a blog of  living better musings, dilemmas, quotes, stories, tips, videos and more. Living Better, it’s a simple thing to ask of yourself everyday ~ Am I Living Better today?  Of course the definition of living better is entirely up to you, some days are profound and others well, that’s why we have tomorrows.   I hope you are living better from visiting here.  Enjoy.

A Little Bit About Me:    The majority of my writing  is on family and children, because that is what I know. I have never had a job that has not involved working with children ~ from cradle to college.  From overseeing a three site child care center, to working as an associate in the dean’s office of a large university, and all points in between.  Additional titles I have held include, teacher, counselor, dean, coach and most importantly mother. I am the proud parent of  three teenagers, a daughter and twin boys. When all is said and done, I try to live better for my family, because it is the one job that matters the most.   (To read more about me , my work and official credentials, please click over to my website!)

Living Better through Youth Sports?  Yes, yes you can!  A sports enthusiast and aging athlete myself, teaching children to “love the game” is a lifelong OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERApassion of mine.  Blog posts on the menu under “The Very Best of Youth Sports”.   Join me on my new Facebook page, a labor of love, fun and inspiration as our children learn to love the game.  Want a quick laugh, silly sports meme or inspirational video follow us here at: The Very Best of Youth Sports
