Quinten's Game Day - Day 2 of my personal blogging challenge

This is day #2 of my personal challenge. As I mentioned when I started yesterday, my goal is to blog for at least 30 days straight. They say it takes 21 days to form a habit, so 30 days should really keep my on track.

Today is Thursday, which is Game Day for my son. This is his last year of Middle School and his second year of making the basketball team. Last year he made the B team as a starter (there are three divisions in Middle School - A, B, and C teams). Over the past year he worked on his game, received some private coaching, and has really shown improvement. That being said, he made the A team this year. Not quite a starter, but he's still working on his game and has slowly increased his playing time.

Overall, I am very proud of him because he worked hard to make the A team this year. His hard work has paid off (but still keeping his school work a priority). This past weekend, they had a local tournament between the Middle School 'A' teams. There were two divisions, both with 8 teams. We finished in 4th place, but played very well. There is another tournament in a few weeks, so we will work towards a better outcome next time around.

What I really like is that the school requires the boys to dress in a shirt and tie on game days (hence the picture)

Sorry its so crooked, tried to take a candid shot on his way in. LOL Kids don't like to take pictures first thing in the morning, so I took what I could get. Anyway, this is a great look for the boys on the team, instead of wearing their jersey or sweatshirts.

Have a great day! See you later in the rain!

What a handsome young man!  I like that idea of having them get spruced up on game day!

I'm with Kristin; I like that they dress on game days and it's always a pleasure to share the accomplishments of our children.

Congrats Dad!  You have a stellar young man there ... and the spitting image of you, I may add.  Both of my boys were athletes .... and ohhhhhhh to have those days back again.  Such great fun and excitement for them and their parents.  Enjoy, my friend ... enjoy!

I think you got a great candid shot. Kids are hard to get a serious photo of...

Thanks Gene.

I appreciate the feedback Robert.

Paul - You are so right. They are hard to capture sometimes, so you just have to take it while you can.

Hi John, great to see you blogging away and sharing with us. That look like a 'planned' crooked photo, we like it!

Im not quite cool enough to do anything 'cool' on purpose. :-)

John, he's turning into a fine and good looking young man right before our eyes. I know you're proud of your boy....

He's getting to be a big boy, Loreena. He's almost as tall as me. I have about 3 inches on him and he's only 13.
