Upward Basketball, Week One

Today was our first Saturday of the next eight weeks....of basketball ALL day long!!! With three kids playing...we felt like we were at the church the entire day...Cade played at 9am, Ian at 140, and Macey at 250....So, we didn't have much time to do anything else....This was Cade's first year to play Upward...So, I took a few more pics of him than the other two...He looked too cute in his uniform....Here is a shot of his team...The Tigers....James and I are helping our friend, Duffer coach....James and Cade....too cute... It isn't baseball, Cade...I think he forgot what sport he was playing...and decided to slide....=)Cade blocking and his good buddies, Jett and Blake with the ball....Cade taking the ball down the court....Me and my little guy....Duffer giving Cade his stars...( In Upward, you recieve a star for your award each week) Cade recieved most Christlike and Best Effort....Way to go Cade...Ian's game was next...Here is a few action pics of him...Yes, he is the one with the "big hair"...He normally has a buzz cut...high and tight to be exact, and wanted to let it grow out...I am ready for a trip to the barber shop....Not a fan of the haircut...at all....anyway...here is a few pics from his game...Stealing the ball....He shoots....He scores....=)And last but not least, Miss Macey's game...Macey played good today...She scored a goal, and really hustled on the court....
An awesome pass.....She is one of the shortest ones on the court...but she knows how to hold her own....Then we came home, and Macey's friend Alexis is spending the night with her...and we had our friends, the Hite's over for some pizza and Domino's....(our favorite game). Cade and Emmy playing on the gymnastics mat....They laughed and giggled the entire time they were playing...I love Miss Emmy....she is such a sweetheart!!! Love you Girl!!!I took this one of me and Christy myself...not too bad...I am letting my hair grow out, and thought it looked long in this pic...I have had short hair forever...so this is a big challenge for me....I will probably only grow it out simply to cut it....but we will see....
We had a good, but busy day....Love spending time with friends, and love watching my kids play sports...Well, I am tired, and am going to hit the sack....Hope everyone has a blessed Sunday tomorrow....Good Night....

Do y'all play "Chicken Foot" I can't explain how to play it, Google it, it's so much more funnier than regular !

When Lake first started playing Upward Soccer, he was a decent player, but not the best on the team. One week when he got the "Most Christlike" star and the kid who was the best on the team got a star for playing well, Lake looked at him and said "I got the best star because I was like Jesus and I'd rather be like Jesus than a good soccer player anyday".......needless to say, we went to our car with red faces and had a "heart -to heart" conversation all the way home!
