On Our Way to the Elite Eight
We have spent the last part of our Spring Break going to and recovering from the NAIA tournament in Jackson, TN. Our Lady Lion basketball team was a 2 seed and we are blessed to be able to go see them when they do play since it is just down the road from us. The kids have been troupers and have been to each game as well - even the 8:00 p.m. game on Thursday night. For each game they have made a sign (which I have failed to take a picture of) for the basketball team. Each one a little different, but with the same message - we love you and good luck. They already have tomorrow's sign planned out to make in the morning. We are so blessed to have such a good group of ladies on this team. Many of them have played at our house with the kids, celebrated holidays and birthdays with us and enjoyed many a Sunday lunch with us. I have always prayed that my children have good role models to look up to and they would choose to look up to these Christian young ladies (and gentlemen) instead of those in the world. With all of that said, we will spend the 3rd night in a row in section P of the Oman Arena cheering our hearts out for our ladies as they try to make it to the Final 4 for the first time in 9 years. Let's go Ladies!!!!
