A Great Girls Basketball Game

Good News! It looks like Mike and Paul will be coming down to Albany, Georgia to run the Albany Marathon with me. They were booking some flights today. Paul is going down on his own but Mike plans on driving down with me and my family and flying back. It makes these out of town marathon more fun when you have friends there, even if we don't run together. It will be nice to have someone there at the finish line to share in the joys of a great run (or the disappointments of a poor run, but this won't happen). It will definitely be fun. None of us have run a marathon in Georgia so we can all add another state. Once done, Mike and Paul will have 14 states completed and I will be up to 9.

As most of you know, I have 3 daughters. I have always wanted the best for them and try to show them that girls can do just about anything. So with this in mind, I like to take my 2nd grader to the local High School to watch the Girls Basketball team play. We have a neighbor who is on the team so she likes to watch her play as well. So I took her to the game tonight in which they were playing the #1 ranked team in the state. The local team are not slouches themselves, they are ranked in the top 10 as well, but we were treated to a great game tonight. Our team defeated the #1 team in a close game all the way. It was a very exciting game and our neighbor played a great game.

Melissa likes going to the games but sometimes I think it is because of the cheerleaders and sometimes just being with all the people, and sometimes I buy her some candy. Which do you think she likes most, LOL.

Probably the candy. :) BUT - this is the kind of thing that girls remember doing when they get older. My mom did most of the driving us around as kids and stuff, but I have memories of one year when my dad had to pick us up from dance class. He'd stop at the little gas station near the studio and get us each a Slush Puppie. To this day, if I see a Slush Puppie machine I think of that... and sometimes have to get one for old time's sake. There are other things like this that stand out to me of doing with my dad, which is nice since most stuff was always with my mom. (They're still together and I always lived with them together, but since dad worked a lot we were with mom most of the time.)
