The header of my blog says, The Life of a Father, Husband and Entrepreneur. I use that because my post may jump around a bit. I enjoy writing about the business side of life but the father and husband part of my life are by far the most important to me. That’s why one of my categories is Heggie Life. This is the category that is more focused on family and events than business.
I enjoy the fact that we do a lot together as a family and when one person in our family has an opportunity to do something we can usually find a way to make it a family event. My kids are active and involved in a lot of things. My oldest two, Tia and Daxon, are the most active and I love following them around.
We recently moved from Alberta, Canada to Queen Creek, Arizona for business reasons. My daughter had a basketball coach a few years ago at the Michael Jordan Flight School basketball camp that heard we had moved and he invited her to come to California to play on his basketball team, the Candace Parker GBL Rebels, for the West Coast Fall Exposure Tournament.
It turned out to be a great weekend for the whole family. We were able to spend a day at Corona del Mar, Newport Beach and then two days in the gym watching Tia play basketball.
School basketball will be starting soon for Tia and Daxon. They attend American Leadership Academy in Queen Creek, CAN’T WAIT!
It was another fun summer following Tia around with her basketball. Unfortunately she suffered an early spring broken leg that slowed her down for a while but she healed up and finished strong. She played on the University of Lethbridge PEBL team in the spring and the U16 Basketball Alberta team during the summer.
Now it’s time for an exciting season of volleyball for Tia and football for Daxon!
We had the opportunity to spend the last week in Wood Buffalo (Fort McMurray) Alberta at the Western Canadian Summer Games. The organizers of the event did a great job. Each event was well organized and the facilities were great. The opening ceremonies were great to watch!
The purpose for us to be at the games was to watch our daughter, Tia Heggie, play with the U16 Basketball Alberta women’s team. We are very proud of Tia and her team. They fought through some tough games and finished fourth overall.
These are some highlights of Tia in her first three games
