Buddies and Ballgames

These last few months have been spent going from game to game and practice to practice.  It has been a lot of fun, especially for the kids.  They a have enjoyed all the time they have gotten to spend with their friends.  It has been a great way for them to get to know the kids in their class better and build friendships with them.  Last night we got to spend the evening with the 3rd grade boys team and a few other friends.  There were moments of craziness but overall it was a fun evening! 

The kids had an early out from school.  Dillon had practice right after school.  His coach had gotten all the boys tickets to the SDSU basketball game for that night.  Michael and I decided that we would go along to help and bring the rest of our kids.  They had been wanting to go to a game.  So I met them there after practice and we took three car loads of kids to Brookings.  We had supper at McDonalds (I don't think they knew quite what to think when we all came walking in). After that we headed to the Frost Arena.  There were many, many trips to the bathrooms and concession stands, several spilled popcorns, a few caught towels from the big cannon they shoot and all of us on the big camera.  The kids seemed to really have fun and to top it off SDSU won!

Zeke was excited because his best 6 th grade buddy (according to him) ended up coming.  He also had his best 1st grade buddy there.
Poor Colby was a good sport and sat next to Zeke the entire game :)
We tried to get a picture with the JackRabbit after the game but I think 10 crazy boys running towards him scared him off so we didn't get one!
I didn't have my real camera with  me and my phone doesn't take good pictures but you get the idea!
Anyways, it was a fun time!  What better way to spend the evening than watching basketball with friends :)

The ball game was a very fun night Emma, even though we didn't get a whole lot of adult conversation together because of wrangling the boisterous boys! Thanks to you and Michael for exchanging a romantic Valentines evening together for a cozy dinner for...19 (at McDonalds)!! Thane and I have appreciated your willingness to help out tremendously with the third grade boys basketball endeavor--Your family is an awesome addition to the Deubrook community!
