23. "up. in case anyone's still interested. "
In response to In response to 0



my youngest daughter's doctor did not clear her to play in the state bball tourny this week with her middle school girls team. without her, they took 2nd in the regional tournament. they would have won, with her. and would have had a chance to win the whole thing this week. but her long term health is more important.

the jv girls team that i coach easily won their regionals. my son's varsity team won two tough games. those two both easily made their all tournament teams, and my son made the all star team for the east (they only do that at the varsity level).

so, if the snow is not too bad, we will have semi finals and championships fri and sat for MSG, JVG and VB teams. wish us luck.

on the school tip, my wife canceled school on monday. my two oldest sons came home for the weekend from college, and my oldest daughter came home, also, and they supported their siblings during the tournament, and we had a great time. we were (as we always do) ripping and running all weekend, so my wife made the call to give the kids monday off, to recoup. she did the girls' hair, and they kinda recharged their batteries.

as it would turn out, when everyone else was having snow days on tuesday, it was no thing for us. the kids knocked out their work, as usual.

peace & blessings,
