Both of our older boys decided to try playing basketball for the first time this year!  I have to admit that i was really concerned that Colby may really struggle going into a new sport at 11 and playing with kids who had been playing for years.  But there was no way i was going to discourage him because of my concern and I'm so thankful i didn't!!! 
Both of them did amazing!!  Brayden is an amazing shot or as his coach put it..."he's got a great touch. he's a natural!".  And Colby blew us away with his ball handling skills and aggressiveness on defense!!
Colby w/ the ball!  He's got skillz i tell ya! =)

Colby doing the jump at the beginning of his all star game!!
there's even cheerleaders at their games!!  how stinkin' cute are they?!!
Brayden bringing the ball down!

brayden had just shot!! and he made it!! =)
I tried so hard to get good pictures but it was hard because i would get SO wrapped up in cheering for them!!  ha!  We're so proud of how hard they each worked and how much they grew in the game throughout the season!!
May the words of my mouth and the meditation of my heart be pleasing in your sight, O Lord, my Rock and my Redeemer.

How fun! Brings back so many memories of when my girls played bball when they were young. They played for a league at our church and it was such a wonderful time of fellowship.
