Mama to a future NBA star…

in his dreams! But Jared did make it through an entire week of tryouts for the 7th grade basketball team and made the first cut from 24 kids to 18 and the LAST cut from 18 to 12. The boy made the team! He is officially a Spring Mills Patriot and nearly bursting with pride (and relief) at his accomplishment.

And, a huge part of me is cheering him on and proud as pie of him. But, the other, perhaps more selfish and tired part of me, got the practice and game schedule for the next three months and secretly wished he hadn’t made the daggone team 🙂 They practice 6 (and yes, they are only twelve year olds) days a week, including 8am on Saturday mornings- ahhhhhhh! Hubby and I are going to flip for which one of us is taking him to that one! And the game schedule (which we must transport him to) is all over the tri-county area (and in West Virginia that encompasses a pretty large radius).

Oh, the things we do for our children. I am a teeny bit excited that my kid made it, maybe a little proud and I know this multi-tasking mama will be cheering (loudly and embarassingly) in the stands at every game!

    Congratulations on the new team! And good luck to mom and dad who get to drive all over creation with the basketball star.

  2. Wow, how exciting! He should be proud!

  3. Congrats to him for making the team. What a great accomplishment. but, I know how you feel. At one time, I had all four kids playing soccer. When the day came that no one was playing and I realized I had my life back (so to speak) I did a happy dance! And I slept in on a Saturday.

    Can’t wait for those days, Debbie! Thanks for giving me hope that they are coming!
