Long weekend of basketball....

Well, Zak had 4 games this weekend and won one. His travel team is absolutely pathetic and it was embarrassing for them. Their coaches are awful and most of those kids are not team players. I feel bad for Zak cause he really puts his heart into it. On the other hand, Christopher had a game and he made a basket!! It was so cute....when he made it he looked right over at me beaming!! I, of course teared up!!

Good job guys! Hopefully the rest of Zak's tournaments will go easier!
