Henry Basketball Season

Henry is also having a fun basketball season. He has Coach Vincente again, who we adored. He teaches and coaches on principles related to value, grit and teamwork. While they are a small team, he is helping them to be mighty. Henry thrives under Vincente...even when Vincente is quite focal with him about what he wants him to improve. The root of it is that he knows Vincente believes in him and has his back. It is a joy to watch. The whole team works their butt off and it has been fun to watch so fun.

Awesome BB Season

This was Frances's first season playing club basketball. She made the team through our club. It was a fantastic experience. Her team had a bunch of gutsy girls who worked really hard. She had a great coach and it was overall an awesome experience.

Opal Hoop Reunion

Maggie saw two of her dear friends at basketball. So adorable...and old and new world merged.

MJ's Turn to Be a Baller

It is finally Maggie's turn to play basketball. One thing that I love about her is she is BEYOND excited to get to wear her hand me down shoes, shorts, and anything else that could be passed down. Her first game was at the school that I went to kindergarten and that I had my first basketball game...pretty crazy to walk back in as a parent. Her team is all girls. Her coach is doing a wonderful job of making it fun. Maggie is VERY earnest about defense and seems to be a Reuland....not shy to take a all :)

Lunar New Year

The amazing parents at our school that celebrate Lunar New Year help to organize an annual event that is awesome!! Our music teacher helps the kids to learn traditional songs from different countries that celebrate the holiday and there are various performances. It is awesome and makes me so thankful for the wonderful diversity in the community. I love learning about the different cultures, music and food. This was Henry's first year going back to the school.....not as a student. He said it was surreal....I feel the same way :)
