Go MJ and Team Thunder!
Steve coaching MJ during practice…definitely following in daddy’s footsteps!
Watching a bunch of 4 and 5 year olds play in a basketball game is hilarious- there are 4 refs on the floor along with both coaches. The kids try to dribble as much as possible, but they inevitably pick up the ball and walk a few steps with it. MJ has done pretty well in the games – dribbling (a little), passing, and shooting (unfortunately all three of his shots were no where near going in, but he tried)! Team Thunder has had two games thus far and have won both of them (6-2 and 4-2)!
Catelin is the team cheerleader:
And the snacks at the end of the game are a big hit for everyone!
As I watched MJ’s team this past Saturday, I couldn’t help but think about the tragedy in Connecticut. There is nothing like the innocence of a child- the true, unbridled joy they find in the smallest of things. To think that someone robbed those poor, innocent children of the rest of their lives is sickening. I am praying for the families and the entire grief-stricken community. It has reminded me to make love a verb every day…to hug my children even longer, to tell them how happy they make me and how truly proud I am of them.
