The End

We have come to the end of the Basketball Season. Daniel learned a lot during the 12 or 13 weeks that we were involved in it. Can't say enough about that program. His awards banquet (with no food or snacks! I always thought a banquet was to eat and celebrate, but I digress...)His awards banquet was really great. All of the players received a basketball.
They had the Juggler for Jesus come. He was funny, entertaining, gave the gospel in a simple way. He presented the same gospel so many different ways with his juggling. We were impressed.
Thus we close the year on basketball. A good time was had by all.

Upward Basketball

I have so much to say about Upward Basketball. It is truly a wonderful program.

It provided an opportunity for Daniel to learn the game, learn sportsmanlike conduct and Christlike conduct. He won an award for most improved player.

One of the biggest things that Daniel has learned in Upward Basketball is that you don't quit when you are behind. With game system games it is just so easy for him to push the reset button when he isn't doing all that well. He really needed a real life situation where there was no reset button! His team has only won 1 game, but they have learned alot.

Would you all give a round of applause for the most improved player, playing Forward (most of the time) Daniel Millard!

What New Here!

There's not much new at the Millard house. Just doing winter things. Caleb has been taking guitar lessons and he really enjoys them. He has learned 3 strings and 8 notes! Whew hew!! His favorite song right now it Aura Lee. We all love hearing him!
Oh by the way, I should let you know that at the tender young age of 13 I found a gray hair in Caleb's head. I pulled one, but there is another one. He said, "Aw Mom!! Am I gunna look like you?" I told him No, he would probably look like Uncle Mark, my brother. And so the circle of life in the gene pool is continuing!
