After we left the mission trip with our youth they headed home to the mountains of Virginia, our family headed two hours to the beach to catch up with Kyle at his basketball tournament. His Xplosion team was playing in a Big Shots tournament in Myrtle Beach and we missed the first half but we made it to the second half of the tourney.
This summer Kyle has played 29 basketball games between Xplosion and summer league with his school team. He has attended Virginia Tech's basketball camp earlier in the summer and this week he is at Eastern Mennonite at point guard college (PGC) to work on his basketball IQ and to learn how to be a leader on and off the court. This kid loves the game of basketbal and has big goals and dreams. We told him as long as he puts God and school first he can dream and pray big! He has certainly put a lot of time and effort into his basketball game this summer.
We have about a week left to enjoy the lazy days of summer-we have certainly enjoyed our time together before reality sets in!
