~* lEt'S sHoOt SoMe HoOpS! *~

I love basketball.
Sadly, my son didn't inherit that same love for the sport! Last season he was able to play for an awesome coach and she pushed Ky hard! He didn't like that and wanted to bail numerous times. But quitting wasn't an option. So he endured the hard practices, learned the basic fundamentals, and got out there and gave it his all. I won't make him play again, but at least I saw him score his first basket and as a 'craZy' mom in the stands, I can tell you not only me, but everyone around me, will remember that moment!
At least he loves playing basketball on the Wii, does that count!?

I was there! Standing behind the bench I'll never forget the moment the ball left his hand on that shot. It was as if an angle was watching over Kyle. I was so happy he hit " nothing but net" I had tears in my eyes. Mom and I were cheering out of control. Son I don't care if you ever play basketball again. That one moment in time on that court you were Dad's hero. Always remember that you tried and that's all that counts. Your still my hero everyday and I love you for everything you are.

Keke, you are such a cool mom. I don't have any children, but for some reason, if I had any, I would have to at least have one boy. I just love their world, even though I am totally feminine....what a lucky guy he is to have to you get in the game with him! Great art, as always! Anita

ok, you know what John just wrote makes him the most awesomest (is that a word) dad of the year...right!

Deb, where is all this creativity coming from, you are scrapping everyday!!! This is an awesome layout-love the buttons for texture.

You should print out what John wrote and attach that to the layout-even to the back if it don't fit on the front.

You've both every right to be very proud parents.
And yes i think the Wii counts.
The LO is great - I love the colours and the buttons [of course]
Take Care and hope you've had a great weekend.

Of course that counts!! And I am sure you will never forget that great moment! And what great mom of you for letting him know quitting is not an option! It never was for us growing up and it certainly won't be for Kendall when she gets involved in whatever she chooses to get involved in! Love the layout:) Amazing!!

Yes I think basketball on the Wii totally counts. Glad you got to see his first basket! That is wonderful.
