Kyle has now seen first hand the competition that is out there and that he must work even harder to improve his game. I preach to Kyle all the time (and to all my kiddos and to our youth kids as well) that God must be at the top of our totem pole. Yes basketball is great, but it should have its proper place on the totem pole of importance. Never should we worship basketball (or anything really) over our Creator. I hope as he pursues his dreams he always remembers that lesson. We are thankful that we got to head out of town for a change of scenry as a family and watch some incredible basketball.
The downside too all of this basketball is sweaty dirty clothes with no hotel laundry. This momma had to get creative and had to use some Woolite in the bathroom sink!
Another exciting opportunity coming to our family very soon is a 400 square foot garden in our yard!!!!!! Mike and I are pretty clueless gardeners, but we have been blessed with the opportunity to take part in a Homegrown garden through our local communtity garden called Sprouting Hope. We are part of the Homegrown program which teaches clueless gardeners like ourselves how to grow food for our family! Our family goal is to share our crops with the food pantry shelves at First United Methodist Church. Our other goal is learn how to garden successfully so that our children will learn how to be gardeners and to share our harvest with those less fortunate than ourselves. We are SO excited to be in this program which is funded through Grow Applachia grant.
Our clan is staying busy but we hope that our "busyness" will never distract us from keeping God front and center of our lives. We are so thankful for the blessings he has sent our way and we will update the blog as our garden grows!
