The best sporting experience ever

The boys played basketball this winter and I have never been so impressed. Not with their skillz necessarily but with the organization they played with. Every game the coordinators would start it off by turning off the lights, starting the fog machine (i kid you not) and the music would pump through the sound system as the announcer would yell out each kids name as they ran onto the court. How great is that - I practically wanted to run onto the court through the fog machine every game. At half time the kids would go into their room for a pep talk and a scripture while a pastor would give the rest of us a devotional in the gym. Yes - we are in the bible belt can you tell? And we are loving every minute of it.

Toby bought this bandana with some of his Christmas money and insisted on wearing it every game and in his team pictures - Holla!

Trey is now OBSESSED with all things basketball - March Madness has lived up to it's name around here with him entering his first bracket - one guess who he has going all the way....

A little memory from the bball season: The kids are matched up based on their colored wrist band. One day Trey was matched up to a kid with long and beautiful hair done in corn rows - honestly the most beautiful long hair I had ever seen. I yelled at Trey all game to, "stay with her Trey", "keep on her Trey" etc. At one point I asked Lars if he was sure the girl Trey was guarding was actually a girl - because I was being really loud. Lars assured me she was a girl. Nope - she was a HE and I was red for the rest of the season everytime I saw his parents. Awesome.

That sounds like such a fun experience. Did I read sometime about Trey going to see the BYU game in New Orleans?? Tom and a couple of my boys are going as well. I think the tickets are outrageous but Tom says this is a once in a lifetime opportunity. I am sure they will all have a blast.

Can we get a fog machine for our next family vacation? You & I could take turns announcing names & running through, too. I adore these boys! I want to go on another road trip w/ you guys, so they can be in my van & make me feel like the "cool aunt." They are so much fun! I need to update some of my music, though, according to Trey, for the next trip. :-) Dang, I wish your spring break matched ours so that you could come to Dollywood w/ us!
