A couple of weeks ago Connor finished up his basketball season.

It is always bittersweet when a season comes to a close.

Usually by the end you are ready for practices and games to be

over, but you will miss seeing and visiting with the other

parents and kids that you have met over the season.

That was no different with this season of basketball.

We tried a different basketball program this year.

It was one of those where I told Jim to just take Connor

to the tryouts and see what happens.

One and half hours later they come home from the tryouts

and two days later we find out Connor has made

one of the teams.

Connor was not happy with me because basketball is not one

of his favorite sports and the whole tryout

was my idea. Moms always take the blame!

However, after they lost the second game of the tourney

and the season officially was done...I saw some tears!

I think he liked it more than he put on

and learned and really improved so much this season!

So proud of him!

Still here...

Sorry it has been so long since my last post. Our lives have been kind of turned upside down the past couple of weeks.

Someone decided that our things should be their things.

On our way home the night of the incident, I told the boys that particular night there would be no wii, no TV, and no computer. I wanted to eat dinner, do homework and get ready for bed. Little did I know that when we walked into our house that night there would be no wii, no TV, no computer and no lots of other items. The good thing that is all just "stuff" and we can replace. Nobody was hurt!

Security system is now set up! I am sleeping better and ready to get things back to normal! I really miss having the computer. Work is so crazy busy too right now for both of us that I do not have anytime to post!

Just wanted to give a quick update!
