Grayson plays point guard on his team and does a great job at feeding the ball to teammates that are open (and taller). Here's one of his favorite outside shots that he's worked on since it might be his "ticket" to playing in the NBA if he doesn't grow...

Hillary didn't win but we were so proud she was a finalist and had the experience and opportunity to associate with others just as wonderful as she is. Woods Cross High School had an admirable showing -- 9 finalists within the 13 categories. Unfortunately Woods Cross came up short this year and didn't win any of the categories but they had the most representatives of all 54 schools involved.

Brooke (#11) and Faith (#5) were very aggressive and Faith made several baskets for our team. Brooke was SO agressive that she fouled out at the beginning of the 4th quarter and we were then "sub-less."
My little Hailey (#10) is truly a dancer. HOWEVER... she's a fighter like her mom and sister and she made the other team extremely annoyed by her persistence to keep them from getting the ball (notice how many subs the other team has?!)
Hillary must've stolen the ball a gazillion times from the other team (about every time they got it). In normal conditions, with that many turnovers you win the game. However, Hillary is a soccer player and can't shoot so they didn't win. I think they honestly could've had it if she had been allowed to kick the ball into the basket...
Final score: 35-24 and a shirt with sweat rings...

This morning I sat in front of the computer for a couple of hours trying to get Hillary signed up for housing at BYU for Fall/Winter semesters. I have to do the same thing Monday morning for Summer semester which begins June 22 and when Hillary will move out and be on her own.
It made me reflect on how quickly time goes by... I have also been working on her scrapbooks with the goal of getting those completely up-to-date before she leaves home in a couple of months. This picture is one I wanted to add to one of her scrapbooks because these kids all look so darn happy.
The last reminder of how fast she grew up was when I called John this afternoon as he was at T-Mobile getting Hillary her early graduation present and instead of John answering his phone, Chan from Flips Gym answered his phone and said she had run into them and he knew I would want to talk to her so he handed her his phone. Well... she went on for five minutes saying she couldn't believe I had a child leaving for college and she remembers when Hillary started at Flips when she was tiny, etc., etc.
Time flies... whether we want it to or not!
