My boys had a basketball game last night. As I have said before, my oldest is a senior and my youngest is a sophomore. It was actually a boring game as far as being a competitive game. We won by 46 points and my oldest has 30 points. The coach called it into the local TV station here and high school basketball is huge here. So yes indeed, his team was announced and his name was on the screen with his name announced too. They spelled his name wrong but said it correctly. I was happy enough with that.
I felt a little bad for the other team but they were scrappy and still determined with playing hard the whole game. The youngest played well also. I love seeing them both in the game at the same time. I am a proud momma!
When I was a teenager my mom didn’t probe into my stuff really, what gadgets did we have? I had a stereo in my bedroom and I was allowed to listen to other music besides Christian. Back in my time they really didn’t have Christian music. They had southern gospel and the rock songs the bad stuff was implied not said. Getting back to my point, we didn’t have a lot to probe into. I know I still did things behind my parents back but not that much.
Now fast forward 35 years..you have the ipod, ipad, playstation where you can have a Netflick account. Then you have the songs of today and they are just filty.
My youngest boy turned sweet 16 last Monday! It’s hard to believe thats possible but it is. We took him out to lunch and he received a smartphone for his birthday, but not sure what else. I would like to figure out a party but with his basketball schedule, it might be hard to figure out.
He’s not much into parties but I think it would be fun for him and his friends. The last party was 2 years ago and it was a football party. Those days are gone, basketball is the new game in town now! Maybe we could combine a basketball game and a karaoke machine after the game, now that would be a good time!!
That just may work.
Let the games begins! For the first time, the Casula Boys are playing together! We went to our first game on Friday night. It was an exciting game. They were behind at the half and all of the third quarter but turned it on in the fourth quarter and won the game by 15 points.
It was a fun game for the fans but it was a frustrating game for the players, they didn’t play so well. I think they thought too much of themselves and believed it was going to be an easy game.
That’s how lessons are learned!
In one more week I will have yet another boy who will get their driver’s license, given them the okay to get on the busy highways.
I was for a split second hoping that he would fail his class so that he would have to wait a little longer to receive the green light, but not a chance.
So not only will I have a 16 year old, I will have a 16 year old that will want to drive everywhere by himself and my answer will be no, you’re not old enough yet. I do let my oldest drive but that’s only here in town, he drives a little too fast for me and is the young man with no fear! I did find out yesterday that he has a fear of heights, very interesting.
Did I mention that the oldest is doing Online classes and enjoys not to have me involved in the process. He so wants his independence.
Basketball is just around the corner for my boys! This will be the first year that both boys are playing the sport I absolutely love and now they love.
My oldest son said to me,”mom, why didn’t you make me play basketball when I was younger?” My response, “I tried and you didn’t want to.” But now they enjoy the game so much. It will be fun watching them play. Lord please keep them safe and let them have a healthy year, for the whole team!!
My oldest son and his girlfriend….it’s their 2nd homecoming. They both are seniors this year. It’s hard to believe that the time is here. He is doing his final year as a homeschooler, taking college courses and working. He is doing well and staying busy which is a wonderful thing for him.
We are not sure about university class rings if he would want one or not. They are nice to have but not a necessity. I’m sure his girlfriend would want to wear it anyways!
They are just cousins!! This is their 2nd homecoming! They are so cute.
How many times do I need to explain myself? Clearly it’s more than once with my wonderful boys! But every time I say this to the boys the Holy Spirit speaks to me and says “how many times do I have to tell you?” That stops me in my tracks every time.
Let’s go back to the cleaning part with the boys…I keep trying to drill in their heads that if they do it correctly and they value time then do it the right way first, instead of doing it as quickly as possible.
Even with using natural cleaning products, ones that won’t make your hand sting after using it to clean the bathroom or the smell that you carry all day. It took him 3 times the other day do get the job done right.
I love this picture of my hubby and oldest son. I was looking through my pictures and I’m realizing I’m not taking as many pictures as I used too. I need to work on that…time is flying by!
