A weekend of basketball

Wow!  What a weekend!  To say that we're all tired today would be an understatement.  Here's a picture that best describes our entire weekend!
 Yes, that's all we did all weekend!

Gracie and my niece had a basketball tournament on Saturday and Sunday.  The tournament took place in a town about 70 miles away from us, so we put in some driving time this weekend as well.  Did I mention that we are tired!  ;)
This girl of mine played her heart out.  She's loves playing and is constantly trying to improve herself.  I'm excited for her to attend a couple of basketball camps this summer.  We play a lot of different schools that seem to have a lot more experience than us and some of the girls she plays are taller than I am, and I'm not short!  So with her being on the smaller side, she is learning that she is having to get more aggressive.  I love watching her fight for the ball.  I also love that she's not a quitter.  She is determined and head strong... always has been.  It can sometimes be hard as a parent when you are trying to raise a child who is head strong, but the older she gets, the more I see how those quality's are going to help her in life.  

I saw this picture on Pinterest and I'm thinking, it would be fun to order Gracie this necklace with her jersey number on it, for her birthday here in a couple months.  Isn't it fun?! 

I hope you all had a great weekend!


  1. Sounds like it was a busy weekend! I can't believe there's girls taller than you at her age. That's craziness!

  2. Glad you had fun at the tournament!
