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!

Such a handsome boy you have.Sometimes we have to push a little bit of change FOR them. They are usually not going to choose it for themselves. I am glad he progressed and that you enjoyed it as well. (I love indoor sports!!)

I just love seeing the pictures of the boys! I love to see them in settings that I don't typically get to playing sports. Connor is just so grown up!
