Wordless Wednesday // Junior Panther Night

Every February, the UNI Athletic Department hosts a free two-hour event for the area youth. Each athletic team takes a spot on the Dome floor and sets up their station for 10-minutes a piece with each age group, taking them through quick drills for their respective sport. It's a great way to spend a cold winter's evening, allowing the kids to expel some energy while getting to hang out with some college sports stars. Both our boys enjoy this, although I think this year was probably Jaden's last. He's getting a little too big, especially since they lower the basketball hoops to almost toddler size. ;)

Jaden's highlight of the night included a huge cheer from the men's basketball team when he performed a dunk move on the smaller hoops, and Brandon loved the football station the best - I'm not sure if it's because he liked the drills or if it's because the football players are really, really fun with the kids. And at the end of the night, Spencer Haldeman recognized Brandon from last summer's basketball camp and asked him if he would come back again this year. That made Brandon feel pretty good. :)

I love this picture. :)
