Chad: Well, my junior high basketball team just had their first basketball game. We have been practicing for several months, but we usually only have practice once a week. We have also had two weeks of camps that the team didn't have any practicies. The last month has had crazy amounts of rain, and since we practic outside it often cancelled our practices. The final piece of data was that the team we played this week played another school last week and beath them 28 to 0. To say the least, I was worried.

I told them that we hade to 1. play defense 2. rebound 3. take care of the ball- if we were going to win. They did an excellent job of all three. We ended up beating them 22-6. As you may have guessed I now live in a country where soccer is the primary sport, but my players did awesome. I really enjoyed it.

dancing Chad

Emily: I just have to say that Chad made me smile all week at camp. If you know Chad, you know that a few years ago you couldn't have paid him to dance. He had quite a serious aversion to it. Over the past couple of years, though, (should I take credit for this??), he has become quite jiggy. Not that he would dance at an official dance, where the dancing takes place, but he does like to bust a move(which is so awesome it makes me laugh..wish you could all see it) when he is in the company of his family and friends.
Back to camp: Junior high week, Chad's team cheer involved nothing but a (silent) quirky dance. Senior high week, Chad's team (team Fed X..?)broke out the "I love to move it, move it" song, changed to "mail it, mail it". Chad also made a cameo appearance in the video scavenger hunt his team did..in the back ground you can see him, all alone, what? yes, dancing. The one that truly got me was this: He lost a bet last week and had to dance for the talent show! WHAT??? When I found out he was going to do it I"m sure I looked confused as ever....Chad? Dance? In front of everyone?? It truly was a sight to behold. He pulled a Michael Jackson (the spin and throw of the hat) for his first move and the rest is history. I love that man!!!
