One thing that I love about Upward Basketball at Woodlawn is that the cheerleading director comes up with these theme days for the kids. Anyone that knows me knows that I love a good theme! Today's theme was Cowboy/Cowgirl Up! It wasn't very easy for the basketball players to participate but Luke wore the bandanna until his game. I also had some western tattoos leftover from some birthday party.
Hanging out before Cameron's game and eating their breakfast...the little ones do much better if they're snacking during the games
I finally took a good amount of pictures at Cameron’s game. Maybe it helped that Daina wasn’t there and that I asked Tracy for some help with the settings on my camera. Thanks Tracy! I think they came out a lot better. Craig was getting the score from Luke because they don’t keep score in Cameron’s league.
Micah put her hat on Luke and then she was trying to put in on Tyler.
Typical Cameron…when he was on the bench he was flirting with the girl that was on the bench behind him.
Sometimes there's an hour between Luke & Cameron's games so at least we can take the kids outside to play on the playground. While we were outside, we took a group shot of all of us in our western wear. See as you can tell PawPaw & ZeeZee dressed for the theme too...maybe that's where I get it from ;)
These were our "funny face" ones. I didn't realize ZeeZee was holding a "stick up" until I uploaded the pictures!
Luke's game - the other team only had 4 players so Luke's team took turns playing for the other team. Luke went first and actually scored the 1st points for the other team.
Back on his team
I thought the little cheerleaders were so cute in their western wear!
Luke made a shot right before the end of the period.

The cheerleaders performed at half-time and after the half-time devotional they passed out spirit sticks.
Luke likes this game because he gets to play against his friend Aidan from down the street. This is the most aggressive I've seen him. He was fighting for the ball against Aidan.
Finally, Luke & Aidan got to guard each other in the final period. Luke couldn't even shoot because he was laughing too much!
Luke was trying to make it down the court to make a shot before the final buzzer, but they ended up knocking it out of bounds.
