This guy turns 36 today! He totally has my heart.
So instead I have one last picture from basketball season. I always appreciate the gifts I receive from my teams, and I always enjoy noting the differences between gifts from girls vs. boys.
This year, while the girls were giving out flowers, and signed pictures, and other such cute keepsakes and mementos, I got a bag filled with these goodies. All of these things, for the record, are nearly impossible to come by in Austria. Well done boys!
You probably can’t see this, but that can of Campbell’s soup is Beans and Bacon. Could there be a more appropriate gift from a group of goofy middle school boys, than that?
However, another reason you haven’t seen this blog updated is that I’ve been spending the lion’s share of my free time working on ICSV’s new website.
In related news, I got a shout-out in the Austrian Times for my work.
The paparazzi isn’t knocking down our door just yet, but I’m sure once their camera batteries are charged up they’ll be staking out our apartment.
If you’re looking at the score book and wondering who was draining 3-pointers like crazy last night, you aren’t the only one. You’re probably having trouble reading the name, but apparently “Grandma” played last night and put on a shooting display for the ages.
I guess I should have been playing her all season!
We rebounded with a win against DIS, went 2-1 at our mid-season Festival in Budapest, and finished off a run of 7 games in 9 days with two more wins.
As much as we hate to lose, they’ve taken those losses in stride and have used them as motivation to work harder and get better.
Please continue to pray that these boys will continue to grow as players and as young men. And if they wanted to grow a little taller, that would be nice, too.
