Saturday Basketball Game
Our boy Jonge is number 23, with the cool blue shoes.
Most weeks Jonge has the largest cheering section. I do believe Kado just comes for the "concessions", as the game holds no interest to him.
This basketball program is called "Upword". Have you heard of it? Several churches just south of here have joined together to make this possible for the kids. I am impressed, and I do not impress easily. Jonge has learned so much.
This week they beat a team that was previously undefeated. They learned about poor sportsmanship for sure. The other team would not say 'good game' and a few of their players cried. Even some grandparents became extremely obnoxious. Both teams played very well. One team just scored one more basket.
I'm the mother of three grown children, and I have a son-in-law and two daughters-in-law who are gifts from God. I've been married to The Husband God Gave Me (THGGM) for 38 years. On January 1, 2006 I became "Beppe" to Jonge, who was quickly followed by Famke, Kado, Feintsje, Hertsje, and Broeder. They have real names, but these are what I call them on this blog. I've always been boring and I doubt that will change anytime soon. Because.., well.., I'm dreadfully GOOD at it!
