The day started for us with Evan's semi-final game at 10:00am. He came more than excited and ready to play:
He had an awesome game, scoring 10 points, and getting 6-7 rebounds:
I think my favorite moment of the whole day was when he went running and jumped into his daddy's arms after the game, with a very proud grandpa looking on:
After Evan's game, we watched 2 more games while the twins waited for their turn to play (they are on the 2nd/3rd Grade girls team). They were excited and ready to play as well!
After their tough loss, we went home and had some lunch and relaxed for a bit before we headed back to watch Evan's classmates, the 4th and 5th grade girls team, play in their finals game. They lost a very close game-I don't remember the exact score, but I think it was another 1 or 2 point game. But our boys got out there and played.And they played hard. For the second time in one day! They were exhausted, but they didn't give up:
I was so proud of our team for bringing home 2nd place in the county, but in that moment-their hearts were broken, because they truly put their hearts and souls out on the floor! And as a mom, my heart was broken too!
All I have to say-these kids are all fantastic! They make so proud as a mom when they go out there and give it their best. Win or lose!
