Basketball News

Hope is doing a great job at basketball this season.  She has a great coack who does a great job of giving each player one on one time during practice.  He’s great with them and very patient.  Tonight at practice, all of the parents cheered when Hope made a basket.  It was so cute.

She is making new friends on her team and is having a great time.

We have a hard time fitting everything in on Halloween.  The girls trick or treat at Hope’s school with Dad and then come to my office.  After I get off, we have dinner and go to a local church for games.  By the time the evening is over, we are all exhausted and ready for a nap the next day.  This year the girls were fairy princesses.

The girls love to go to the build and grow workshops at Lowes.  They get to use hammers and make small projects.  They have aprons and get a patch after each workshop.  When my nieces were here, we went to the build a pumpkin workshop.

They worked very hard and were very studious.

At least for a while.

She concentrates really hard and hammers away.  She does a very good job.

We had a few breaks for giggling and hair fixing, but ….

They all finished.

I love this picture.  She was having so much fun.

She made it through the maze also.  She helped read the clues.

I wonder how many miles Buddy walked that day.  He deserves an apple break.

The cousins have so much fun when they are together.  It’s a constant giggle fest.

She can be so stinking cute sometimes.

She was so excited to ride Buddy.

We conquered the hay maze and made it to the castle.
