Dedication and welcome home

Tonight is the big night. Carson's team is in the final game of the tournament. They have lost only one game this season and it was to the team we play tonight. Not to brag but just look at his dedication..... on game day he shoots 100 shots. David(aka,daddy and coach) told him to do this a while back. He fully expected him to shoot the shots and maybe make half of them. The first time he did this it took a while. What we found out was he wouldn't count them if he missed. So he was litterally shooting and making 100 baskets before he would be done. We are so proud of him.. Forget the sports ability that God has given him, He is just one great kid!!!! Go Tigers!!!!!!

Chandler made it home from Argentina. Doesn't he look excited..... This picture was taken after a 10 hour flight from Argentina to Dallas, a 2 hour layover, and then a final flight of 1 1/2 hours. He was so tired. He had a great time and we were thrilled to have him back. I'll do a post on it later.

Hey Sis,
Hope Carson had a wonderful last game! Keep us posted!
Chandler looks exhausted - kinda how we did after 14 1/2 hours to Japan in 1986 huh? SO glad that he had a great time and I'm sure he is glad to be home and with his girlfriend. Have a great day!
Love ya,
