We are the Champions!!

We spent our weekend in Saylesville, WI, at a 7th/8th grade basketball tournament.  Our first tournament game was last Thursday night, which we lost to a 7th grade Hartford team who had 5 really good players!  It was a bummer that we lost that night, but little did we know that we would come back in the losers bracket and play that team again twice on Sunday to WIN the championship!!  Here's the team photo-- they were really HAPPY!!!

Anna vs.The Giant

 Anna played in a game last night with a team of supposed 5th grade girls...  This was the girl that was guarding Anna....

She was a little intimidated at first by her height....

 but then she just dribbled around her.... Go Anna!!

Dogs, Beds and Beyond....

 Anna and I took a class on "decorating your bedroom."  While we were interested in all aspects of decorating, the class basically showcased the bed and how to "dress" your bed. After Anna left for school yesterday, I walked into her room and found her bed looking like this....I thought she did a great job of "making" her bed!!

I was dog sitting for the last few days.....Marlee Sue is her name, sock stealing is her game!!

 Here's a pic of Bella Roo enjoying Ben's Love Sac....

Championship Game!!

 It was a weekend FULL of basketball as our school hosted a huge tournament!!  The good news was
Luke's 8th grade team made it into the Championship game....bad news--  despite the sign, they lost the championship game by just a few points!!  Bummer!!

More good news...Anna's cheer leading squad got to cheer for the game!!  Here she is, in a few of her mounts!! Hopefully, you can spot her!!
