Strange title, I know....but every year around this same time I seem to get my fill of basketball. There are times I feel like I am at an all you can watch basketball buffet . . . and I am absolutely stuffed! (Cheryl - I really am working on my writing skills! I'm trying!!) I must admit that I have skipped quite a few away games this year though. My heart just hasn't been into it and I am just as happy sitting home with Jenna and doing our own thing. Jacob goes to every single game as a ball boy, so I don't have to worry about him making me feel guilty for not taking him. Chris has had a great season this year and is currently 15-2. The end is in sight . . . only a few more games to go.
Jacob is also playing basketball again this year. He played in a 5th grade league earilier this winter and started in the Y league right after Christmas. Their team played well, but didn't have a very successful season. They lost their tournament game in overtime yesterday. And now it's on to league #3 of the season for Jacob. He started practicing for the "Hornets" (a 5th grade Van Wert league) a few weeks ago and has his first scrimmage today (which Jenna and I again chose to skip). This team will play in weekend tournaments in March and April . . . so our basketball season will continue for a while.
A few photos of Jacob in action. The grey shirt photos are from the 5th grade league in November and December. The maroon shirt photos are from the Y league.
