"a portrait of each of my children, once each week, in 2017"
Jaden: He worked SO hard this weekend. The Outlaws played in one heck of a tournament with tough competition in all four of their games on Saturday. This one played a ton of minutes and hardly saw any bench time, as he's been focusing his game lately on tough defense and rebounding. He then had a two hour practice the day after his tournament, and by Sunday night, he was limping around trying to put ice on every muscle in his two legs. This basketball thing is becoming even more of a family affair - as Cody has been asked to run one of the practices each week due to some schedule conflicts with the other two coaches.
Brandon: He was so good throughout our full tournament day that we felt he deserved a reward afterwards. Before returning to town, we stopped with the rest of our basketball families at AirFx and let the kiddos jump and flip to their hearts contents. At one point, one of the other moms called me over to this area so that I could find Brandon creating a little chair for himself out of the foam squares from the foam pits. He is ALWAYS building!
