I’m behind on posting and for some odd reason I now have all this extra time on my hands (*wink wink). So I’m going to try and get caught up on some of the things that I want to have documented. First up, sports!
Kevyn ended her club volleyball season the weekend before Spring Break. I remember thinking that weekend how crazy it was that they were asking the teams to wave at each other rather than slap hands due to the looming coronavirus. At this point, there were only like 2 cases in the U.S. and it just sounded absurd that they couldn’t slap hands. They ended their season on a high note and I think they ended up 2nd in their bracket.
Both boys played Little Dribblers this year. This was their first time playing basketball and they both did so well! I’m proud of both of them and they both are eager to play again next year!
All the boys games were on Sunday afternoons which was nice because it didn’t interfere with any of the girl’s sports commitments. Below Kevyn & Gage are being silly at one of Cash’s games. He’s a “lunacorn”!
Each boy received medals after their last game.
This was Kevyn’s first game to play JV Basketball for Immanuel. Kevyn also did really well especially since she had not played for a few years. I’m excited to watch her team grow together.
Kelby’s end to her basketball season is heartbreaking. If I would have been up to date and posting this in real time, it probably wouldn’t be as hard to type because I wouldn’t know of the future that lies ahead.
Kelby had an amazing 7th grade year. It was her last year to play with some of her best friends who are 8th graders and who are also amazing athletes. These girls either win or come in 2nd in every tournament they have ever played. Many times it is against schools five times the size of ours. They play with so much heart and it is just so much fun to watch.
The State Tournament fell of Valentines Day weekend. Our girls were the #1 seed and were expected to win State again. They had already done really well in some previous tournaments and beat their biggest opponents.
Our school always does a big send off for our varsity teams going to state…
I love how our boys come to watch the girls when they aren’t playing and vice versa! They are all such good friends!
Our girls played so well and made it to the championship game!
Unfortunately, they were just off and fell short. It was heartbreaking to watch.
A few clips from the weekend…
This group of 7th graders will be back next year!
Getting 2nd is never easy but our girls held on to the fact that second place still allowed them to go to Nationals in Indiana at the end of March. They continued to practice hard all the way up to Spring Break and that’s when they were told the National tournament had been cancelled. My heart hurt for them all.
Kelby’s select soccer season had also started back up and I think they got in two games before it too was cancelled. I don’t have any pictures of her playing, just this one of her laid out on the floor worn out after a game. Haha!
I don’t want to sound shallow because I know losing sports is NOTHING compared to what some have had to go through with this pandemic, BUT I really miss watching my kids play. I know soon enough we will be caught back up in the hustle and bustle of sports and practices and I CANNOT WAIT!
That’s it for now friends! Hope you all have a great week!
