The weekend went by so fast!!! Jax had his very first basketball game Saturday. I forgot my camera. He did okay but he is still just confused. They only had two practices before their first game and that is not long enough for kids to understand the game. Michelle ( the coaches wife) was introduced to me at a play group by my friend and neighbor Laura. Laura's brother is the coach. Michelle told me I should let Jax play basketball at the YMCA with them. I thought she said it was 5 and 6 years olds. I guess I thought there would be a lot of 5 year olds. No - a few of the other kids are about to be 7 and played last year. Jax is the littlest and the most confused, but he got out there and did his best. I am so proud of him for just getting out there when he didn't know what to do. For Jax that is a huge accomplishment, but he and Chris have a lot of work to do.
I am gearing up to go to HEB ( an awesome grocery store here) and get all of my stuff for my Thanksgiving dinner. I am so excited!!! I have only attempted it once. My neighbor Gary said he would love to fry my turkey. He kept asking, so I am going to let him. That makes my life easier. I think I am going to get stuff and let the kids make cookies. They love to cook and make stuff. Rachael Ray has a couple of kids cooking items that she sells on her website. There is one with a cutting board, knife and glove. It is so cool, the knife won't cut through the glove. Jax would loooooooooooove it. It is backordered. Hope I can get one before Christmas.
