Sam's first day of basketball
Last year it was t-ball, this year it's b-ball.
Since Amelia is in school, attending first grade, Melissa decided to sign up Sam and Macie for some extracurricular activities.
So Macie is taking dance, while Sam is doing basketball.
It's fun watching him try to understand what the coach at the local YMCA is trying to teach him.
They started out teaching the kids how to stretch, and then moved right into dribbling, which isn't so easy for a three-year old, but Sam loves it.
He dribbled down the court as best he could, which basically consists of him throwing the ball on the floor, watching it bounce, then chasing it down. He did that all the way across the floor, gave his dad a high five, and then dribbled back.
Mostly he just wants to shoot baskets, and at that he's not too bad. Just watch the video. Sadly, it was once I was shooting video when he started missing. Before that, the kid didn't miss a shot.
March 18, 2009. Sam and Mom have a weekly date to Cherub Choir. Melissa volunteers as co-director to the preschool choir at the Cathedral of the Rockies. Sam is in the choir, and sings the loudest! We are working on "Jesus Loves Me" to be sung at their church service on Palm Sunday.
This past week, the other director was explaining to the kids that there will be no choir next week due to spring break. They all stared blankly, not having a clue what spring break is. She tried to explain spring break in kid language and had no luck. Finally Sam blurted, "Oh! Bekuss I bweak evwything!" The other parents got a good chuckle out of that one.
Sam's I love you
Feb. 25, 2008 -- One of the most enjoyable things about watching our kids grow up, is listening to them as they learn to speak.
Feb. 4, 2008 -- Amelia got hurt tonight and Sam just couldn't get it out of his mind. When Trisch was putting the twins to bed, Macie went right to sleep, but Sam kept thinking about Amelia. He said it over and over again, "Me-yah. Ouchie! Me-yah. Ouchie!"
Click below to hear a clip of Sam's favorite song. We play it in the kitchen at breakfast time. He loves to sing along to "Be-haps Be-haps Be-haps".
