Hot Hoops

We spent the day in Brewster yesterday so Dane & Nicole could play in a 5 on 5 tournament.  Literally all day ... us girls left the house at 6:30 am and got home at 10 pm. :) But I love that they want to play!!!

Nicole's team ended up 4th ... and Dane's team didn't win any games, but they could have. 

Dane isn't afraid to shoot if they give him the window (or if it's launching one from a distance) ... he just couldn't get them to fall. By his 3rd game he was taking it to the basket and drawing the foul.

Nicole played well ... and as her coach, I expect alot from her while she's on the floor. She does a good job accepting my challenges :) And during our last game she got in foul trouble and set most of the 1st half ... and while she was playing, got a quick education on what it was like to have 3 girls collapse as soon as she touched the ball.

March Madness

While I don't fill out bracket predictions ... I do follow everything rather closely.

Today, Abby gets a movie at Wal-Mart and on the way home she says "Mom, can I watch this on the big TV when we get home instead of you watching basketball?"  Haha, of course I let her & low and behold I MISSED THE MIZZOU UPSET.  Ugghh
