Basketball Filled Weekends

We are spending our weekends sitting on bleachers watching the girls play basketball.  Ashlin plays on Saturdays at the YMCA in the 3rd-4th grade rec league.  Erica has been playing in the 5th-6th grade 5-on-5 YMCA spirit league on Sunday afternoons.  Cara has been playing school club basketball on the 8th grade team.  There are not enough 7th grade girls out for club ball; therefore, the girls have been moved up to play with the 8th grade girls.
 Ashlin has a few more Saturdays left to play at the YMCA.  She is improving with her ball handling skills and her defense has come a long ways.
 Erica played her last two games yesterday afternoon for the spirit league and now she will move on to club basketball and play in a few tournaments.

 Cara has started playing in tournaments.  Two weeks ago the girls played in the York Tournament in the gold division which was all Class A schools except for us a Class C1 school.  The girls beat a team from Grand Island, but lost to two Lincoln South teams. Yesterday they placed 3rd in the Crofton Tournament and next weekend they travel to play in a tournament in Blair. 
Take care,


  1. Holy cats! You guys are sooo busy! Basketball is so painful this year and I am hoping Carson doesn't want to play next year! I told him he could condition for baseball instead to stay in shape! Hope you have a great week!

  2. Wow -- you all are so busy! Looks like lots of fun! Have a good week!

  3. Sounds like busy Saturday mornings for your guys. Hopefully it is helping chase away some of the winter blahs!

  4. I was just thinking that basketball was taking over our lives, but I do believe you are even busier!
