Tell me Thursday – February 16

On Tuesday Josh played the basketball game of his life. His team was playing in the final tournament game of the season and the end result would determine who took 3rd place and who took 4th place.

The score went back and forth for the majority of the game, but the last four minutes of the game is where it got interesting. You see Josh got the ball and shot it and got a three pointer for it. Less than a minute later Josh ended up with the ball again and did a layup with the end result being 2 points. About a minute later Josh stole the ball from a player and went down court. He tried for the three pointer again and then was fouled. Because he was going for a three point shot, he was given three free throws. He ended up with one point, which made his final score for the game six points. The last two minutes of the game showed Josh’s team was the strong of the two and with four more points scored they won the game and took third place in the county.

Josh’s team had an outstanding season and I’m so glad we were able to watch the games. Josh excelled each day and it’s so great to see him improve. His coach was fantastic and he taught these kids so much.

Here’s the picture again, just in case you missed it.

You had a great season Josh and I’m so proud of you. I love you so much!!

Now it’s about Chris

During that same camping trip I mentioned yesterday, I could just tell my oldest wanted to have a blog post written about him too. He didn’t flat come out and say it, but a mom just knows. Hehehe

This post is all about my oldest son Chris. He’s 15 years old and he’s a wonderful kid. He was born three weeks early but the doctor did a gestational age test on him and he was actually two weeks late. He’s been a big boy all of his life but that hasn’t stopped him from doing what he enjoys. He loves to play football and basketball. He also likes track but had to stop due to a back injury.

He’s a very busy kid. He lifts weights and works out with the football team three days a week during the summer. He does a lot of work for a very nice lady down the street, he’s learned to long board (that’s a long skate board), and he enjoys being with his friends. He’s always on the go, but is a typical teenager in that he sleeps a good portion of the day away. LOL

He’s very helpful and strong which makes it nice when we need something heavy moved. He’s always willing to help no matter what you need or want him to do. Those are wonderful qualities that any mom would be proud to say her child has and it makes me happy to say my son has them. :) I love you Chris!

Tournament Week, Final Day

Day three of the tournament was the end of the road for all of the teams involved. Josh’s team was playing for 1st or 2nd place when they played today. They played a very good game. They had a lot of good shots, good plays, and they had a lot of fun. In the end they came out in 2nd place.

It was fun to watch and it was wonderful to see Josh play. He’s improved so much this year and he’s had such a good time. He loves to play basketball and it showed with the scores he’s made, the rebounds, and the assists. All of which helped lead his team to the top where they placed 2nd in the city. It was an awesome season and one I’m so glad I got to see.

Now we’re off and running with track and he’s just as excited to participate in this sport. He in the beginning stages of track so he doesn’t know what he will do, but he’ll decide soon. His first meet in next Saturday and I can’t wait to watch him do is events. So here we go again. :)

Tell me Thursday – December 30

Yesterday I posted a picture of my oldest son Chris playing in his first home game of the basketball season. It was great to watch and I look forward to watching more. He did an awesome layup and scored on that. He also assisted in two more scores during the game. It was awesome!

Just in case you missed the picture, here it is again.

Josh’s basketball tournament

Josh’s basketball team had an awesome season. They won all of their regular season games. The first tournament game was against a team we’d never played before. It was a traveling team and it was hard and tough. We were tide and had to go into overtime. We won 20-19 and that meant we had to turn around and play again. The kids were really tired, but they played hard again. We lost the game, but it wasn’t because the kids didn’t try.

Way to go Josh and the rest of the Wizards team members. Coach John did an excellent job and we’re happy with the skills the kids picked up along the way. He taught them so much and Josh learned a lot.

Basketball and swimming

Our boys are once again keeping us busy. This seems to happen on a regular basis during the school year. In the summer they don’t do sports so it’s a nice time to relax.

Josh is in the middle of basketball right now. His team is currently undefeated and they are doing great! They have learned so much and their coach continues to teach them new things. They are coming together nicely as a team and have grown into a wonderful team.

The coach is always showing kids new things and encouraging them when they do something wrong or it doesn’t work. Here is a picture of just that. The coach is showing Josh how to do something that he did wrong in the game. Josh learned how to do it and was successful the next time he did it. Way to go Josh!

Chris is in swimming now and having a really good time. He wants to be on the swim team in the follow when he goes to high school. His instructor is showing him how to do things properly and he feels very good about it.

Here is a picture of Chris jumping into the pool.

We enjoy watching our boys in the sports they do. We love to encourage them and help them grow and improve.

Way to go boys!! Keep up the hard work. We’re proud of you.
