Rivals Today...Friends Always

....and so it begins again...BASKETBALL SEASON that is!!
Last Saturday was the boys' first basketball game! Thankfully they are on the same team, which makes it so much easier for me...1 night of practice and 1 game a week vs. 2 practices and 2 games a week...
So on Saturday we show up to the game to find a friend on the opposing team...What is a friend to do...but defend!! It was so funny...cuz every time Brendan was on the court he wanted to defend Elijah...but every time Colin was on the court, he steered clear of him!

Here is Brendan going up for the pass

Colin...awesome defense

Brendan passing the ball into Colin


Get that ball....
Notice the score...we were on the losing end :(

Nice Defense Bren

Count it for 2


They are on the Purple Vipers
Brendan is #6 and Colin is #7

Great Game Boys!

Sadly they did not come home with a win...but it was a hard fought game. At one point they were down by more than 10 points, but came back to within six points...final score...18-24...

Better Luck Next Time Vipers!

How fast a year go! It is hard to believe basketball is here again... it seems you were just wrapping up the last season.

From football to basketball, seems to go oh so fast! 2 of my girls played soccer on the same team and man that was so convenient. Good luck to the boys and their basketball season.

Stacy said...

I love basketball! My kids don't play competitively, but I played in Junior high and part of high school. I was on a parks dept. team not a school team. It was fun. I miss it.

Your boys sure play some sports don't they? I guess with dad as a coach it's in the blood huh?

I think it's great,

I remember sitting through all those games...up until this year. My son has to sit this season out due to shoulder surgery and PT. My other son and daughter are not of the athletic nature so we aren't having to go to games this year.
Your boys are cute.
