So the second game of the night proved to be a good one also. We were ahead by 12 points in the first half but fell a little lax. But we pulled it out for a win with 2.4 seconds to go and my oldest threw a baseball pass in full court to the center, who tipped it to a guard to the side of them, he faked then went up with the shot and SCORED!! We win the game. It couldn’t have been that close but it was and they pulled it out.
By the end of the day I needed a suboxone treatment for myself. My stomach was upset with all the drama through the day.
AND that was just the first day. We are just getting started. We have 2 more days of games.
Well the weekend is over and many lessons were learned, at least I hope I learned them. It’s mainly learning to know that all of us are different and our circumstances in life are what made us so different.
We have several families in our home school network and at these tournaments we have to eat, sleep, and play together and there are times where we might tend to break the nerves of each other only if we are not honest and work out what bothers us.
We work best as a family if we are honest at most things and the other 25% should be kept between me and God.
Yippee we are in the finals in our state tournament! Last night was a tough game against the Blue Knights. We started the first quarter with only 4 points so the score at the end of 1st was 4-20! But the boys never wavered. They dug their heels in and kept going, much of how we have to do in life.
I worked with a tech yesterday who is almost at his breaking point. But he needs to dig in and keep going, look at all the positives in his life and there are many!
We are excited about tonight’s game!
Well I made it to the 3rd quarter of the first game of the tournament and they were way ahead! So I fine missing what I did. Of course they added 2 more patients onto our schedule but the tech I worked with was fine with me leaving 30 minutes early and I got everything caught up for him.
We are not staying at the same hotel as everybody else so the boys are bummed about that but they will survive. If we win tonight we won’t play until 7:20pm! Go Saints!
My oldest son get paralyzed when he gets sick. What I mean is that he worries since being sick four years ago and being hospitalized for 5 days, he was really sick and we didn’t know what was wrong. It turned out to be a virus we think he caught swimming at a public pool. It’s the only thing we could figure out but I thought for a day we could have lost them to the illness. Thank God we didn’t but it did do something to him.
But it’s something that God will have to work out in him. God did not call us to live in fear!
This was taken after a huge overtime win that put the boys into the championship in Minnesota. We did lose in that game. My nerves for that game were crazy. I had butterflies the whole game. I think mainly because they weren’t playing up to their potential and I could remember how that feeling was as a player.
This week they have State and I am rooting for the BOYS!
We have been so busy with basketball it’s crazy! But having a great time with the boys. They are having a great season except in their eyes the referees all are terrible. I know one day they will figure it out but right now especially the oldest one is so negative.
They have won 2 tournaments and 2 times they were 2nd place in 2 tournaments. We are having fun!
My hubby and I have been married for 19 years. It’s been some good, bad, and ugly years. Mostly good, but now we are beginning a new era in our relationship. It’s called the empty nesters.
I remembered years ago having a conversation with a friend whose oldest boy was turning 18, getting ready to head off to go into the army. It was hard for her and she said “just you wait.” My wait is over. It is now time. Time to grow and make his own decisions. He and his girlfriend have been dating for 2 years and both feel like they are the one for each other. I keep praying for them both and if they are not right for each other that the break would be sooner than later. Otherwise he will be looking for mens wedding band in a few years.
My oldest scored his career high, 30 points the other night. He was so happy and it was announced on the local news. They spelled his last name wrong but pronounced it correctly.
The game was over by half time. Strange occurrence, they were ahead the whole game but the opposition kept fighting back. When they would score they would go crazy, so it would force our coach to put the starters back in. Yet we won by 40 points. So did the coach do a unsportsmanlike thing with playing the starting or did the other coach spur that action on by going crazy when their team scored?
We had a lot of fans from both teams there…even some wholesale trade printers, drumming up some business for themselves!
This weekend was going to be so busy with ballgames. In my head, it was a little hectic but I knew I would enjoy every minute of it. But then this front moved into town and we got blanketed with 6 inches of snow. It halted everything! Games were cancelled!
