Valentine's Day, Snow Day, Soccer and a lot of Basketball!

We've had a few fun, busy weeks!

They boys have had fun playing basketball this winter.  We only have 2 weeks left of the season.  Brodie's team had a tournament today and got second place.  They worked hard and were exhausted at the end of the last game.  I just hope they look back on the tournament fondly rather than disappointed.

Brodie almost smiled in this one (I was begging him to eat this morning but he wouldn't because he  wasn't hungry)

Isaac's team still hasn't won a game, but hopefully they are having a little fun and are learning a little also.  They may actually be having too much fun....doing other things.  Right after tip off of this weeks game, I looked to see why the team wasn't running down the court.  Two of our players were playing rock, paper, scissors in the middle of the court!  That pretty much sums up the game.  :)

Brodie had a 3v3 soccer tournament last weekend.  His team got better every game as they figured out the ins and outs of playing 3 v3 soccer. 



We love having the outbuilding this winter.  It has been great for the boys and their friends to go play in.
