How to shoot a basketball....

Brecken got a basketball goal from my parents for Christmas. The girls loves to play some basketball. It is a little high for her now, but it will last longer than toddler goal. Yesterday she was "shooting" and made it for the first time! She and I were shocked and excited!
So, just in case you need to know the proper way to shoot a are some tips from Brecken.
Obviously, you need your basketball shoes on (preferably the right feet), your basketball shorts and a basketball.

All the good players dribble before a shot too.

The most important element of a good shot is good form. Notice the follow through.
And last, but not least, you must be able to jump!
If you put all those steps together you will make the shot! Brecken guarantees it!

Happy Birthday Augusta!

Today, Augusta is 18 years old. Sigh... Where has the time gone? I remember keeping her when she was a baby, letting her sit with me at chapel when I was a Senior, watching her play ball and grow into a beautiful, Christian woman! I love you Gus and am so proud of you! Thank you for the example you have set, especially for my girls.

The time has come...

to quit putting my girls in matching clothes. Kayden is completely over it. It was a huge ordeal to get this dress on her this morning, and after complaining that it was ugly, itchy, dumb and long, she wore it to church. Sigh. Brecken thought it was cool of course. So, I guess I have to get approval of clothes before buying. Oh well, they were cute today anyway!

Cheering on the Generals!

We went to the ballgame tonight to cheer on our Lady Generals and Generals. Kayden does such a good job and is really enjoying it. It is her thing.
Not really sure why her hair is all in her face...oh wait, I forgot to put it up!
Such a cutie!
Brecken was intently watching Coach Kent give the girls a "pep talk".
Kayden and Cierra cheering.

Ahh, the innocence....

Kayden spent the night with her friend Lindsey last night and Nikki sent me this text about a conversation they had.
Lindsey: Oh look, there's Smitty's!
Nikki: No, wrong one sweetie...we like the hamburger Smitty's (where her grandparents lived)
Lindsey: What's that one?
Nikki: That's the liquor store Smitty's.
Kayden: What do you lick there?

I laughed so hard when I read this. And, I am very proud that my sweet 6 year old doesn't know what liquor is!
