"One of these things is not like the other..."

Remember that song from Sesame Street? When I saw Grayson in his first Junior High basketball game today (the only 7th grader to make the team), that old Sesame Street song ran through my mind...

Even though he's the smallest on the team, he's a starter on the J.V. team and played a lot of the game.

The unfortunate thing is that as a 7th grader he got the last pick of uniforms and was left with a men's LARGE. C'mon, really?! The jersey is like a dress when it's not tucked in and the shorts are capris.

He's living his dream though and said he had to pinch himself after the coach told him he made it because he couldn't believe his dream came true!

Here's to a heck of a lot of basketball in the next few months... (just got home from the 3rd game today!)

Dreams are meant to come true - but he has a lot of heart and determination - you can see it.

Congrats to Grayson! What a stud!
