Half Full Day

Yesterday was suppose to be a full days worth of activities, but half were cancelled due to rainy, cold weather. I started the afternoon out with the last game of Macho Man Volleyball. Matthew's team won in 2 sets. It really wasn't much competition. The team on Tuesday was much better and more exciting. After that was done I headed over to Jacob's school. He was in a basketball game of kids vs teachers/staff. He won the right to play because we bid on it at a silent auction at a school fundraiser. He and his best friend Thomas have done this for the last 5 years. It's a lot a fun, but kind of sad since this will be his last one. Makenzie was suppose to have a track meet after that, but the weather did not cooperate, which was too bad, Makenzie had been looking forward to this particular meet. This meet was at our high school and she was getting to do all of her events. It probably won't even be made up. Boooooo!!! Jacob was also suppose to have soccer practice...cancelled also. We got to spend a relaxing evening at home, which was nice since Dale had been out of town for a few days and just got home last night.

Smilin' Matt....That's what teachers call him

Matthew is in the middle. The other two guys are his best football buddies. The one behind Matthew is the kid he quarterbacked with all through high school. The one up close is Matthew's favorite receiver, Eugene Smith, his "brother from another mother" is what they say.

Congratulating the other team

Yes, you are #1

But Jacob still stole the ball from her

I wonder if she will make him run today???

Here is the other goodie we won at the silent auction.....

An autographed Elvin Hayes basketball... or "The Big E".
He is one of the 50 greatest NBA players.
Even if we didn't win the ball we had connections to get one. Mrs. Karlsson (in the above picture) is Elvin Hayes daughter. She actually told me to stop bidding and bring her a ball and she'd get it signed, but we actually won the one that night. Jacob was happy to be able to bring it home that evening.
