It has been quite the year for Josh in basketball this year. It seems like all of our whole lives have revolved around the JV team at the high school. We absoloutely love going to watch the games and some of us (mom) get so worked up about them that we get sick before each game!!!
They've definatly had their ups and downs, but the ups have been great! He has made a lot of progress in his shots and has started and played almost all of most of the games. A few of the highlights were, 4 point technical shots against a rival team, all of which he made, a last second shot at another very close game in which he got the winning point, and being part of a very fun varsity group called the "chaos". Well, actually it's called the MFC. (the Major Freakin' Chaos, or something close to that anyway!)This group of JV boys (Josh and a few of his best friends, which makes it even more fun) come in during the varsity game sometimes and mess everything up, so the other team doesn't know what's going on. They were even in a local newspaper, It's been a lot of fun!
Basketball is definatly a contact sport and a few times he's gotten hurt, bled on the floor, gotten wacked and even blacked out once or twice, but he always gets back up and keeps going. He had to come back from a trip to California so he wouldn't miss a game. He's sacrificed lots of other things to be part of this team and I've seen his character grow so much from playing. I think sports is such a great way to learn so many of life's lessons. I am so grateful he's been a part of such a great team with a whole bunch of great kids and good coaches. The things he's learned are exactly what he's needed this year He's grown a lot, his confidence is high and he feels accomplished. I never want him to feel entitled, or arrogant, but I love seeing him happy, sure of himself and busy doing something he is absoloutely passionate about!!!!
So, we have one more game, it's a biggie, it's against their biggest rival and it's at home. I am already sick to death about it, I hope they win. No, that doesn't do it justice, they HAVE GOT TO WIN!!!!!!! GO SKYHAWKS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

A Little Bit o' dancing going on!

We had a weekend full of dancing!
Jen had her fireside, which was amazing! The girls are so talented and she has learned so much! She had a solo and did a great job! We were thrilled to watch her and happy to see her doing so well!
Josh had sweethearts! He took a cute girl named Shanae. He and his friend, Chris and his date Bethany, doubled. They went ice skating and to PF Changs (lucky!!) then they went to the dance. It is so fun to see him dating and having a great time.
I LOVE my teenagers! They are so much fun and it's great to see them turning into such awesome people!!!!! DANCE AWAY!!!!

Steel Magnolias

Jenica is currently in the play Steel Magnolia's at her school. We went last night and HOLY COW!!!!!! She was AWESOME!!! She plays My'Lynn, the mother of a daughter (Shelby) who has terminal diabetes. She is a typical mom who would do anything for her daughter, including giving her a kidney. The setting is a beauty shop in Louisiana, there are only 6 girls in the play. Really, I was so impressed with all of them. They all had to learn southern accents and A LOT of lines!! It was so good and we are so proud of her ! Way to go Jen-Boo!
