The end of February and the beginning of March meant the start of golf for Brailey. She has joined the Sheldon golf team. This means she has two practices - golf for two hours after school, and then dance practice after that. She actually isn't sure if she wants to continue with golf, after the first week. The weather has been really nasty, and it is super cold outside, which isn't much fun. She is giving it one more week before she makes a final decision, though. She does love golf, and the girls on the team are nice, so we shall see what happens. Her life is full, to put it mildly.
And while Brailey was golfing, Britt was taking selfies on my phone with his headband and shades on the way to one of his basketball practices. This was on the one sunny day we had was last week. He does look mighty fine in those shades. He also really needs a haircut, but we can never find the time to get it done!
Thrill Down. Brady has renamed it Thrill Down, because he loves it so much. Brailey, for the first time ever, made the Top Ten! They usually give medals away, but this time they gave beautiful pink ribbons! She was very happy, but not even close to as happy and proud as Brady (okay, and me, too!) was. It is not an easy thing to do by any means! On this particular day, she was the only Sheldon Colleen to make the Top Ten.
Creepy Snow White Dance. It was a really fun one! These are pictures I bought from the photographers there - you picked them out on the computer and they printed them on site. It was great! They captured Brailey's facials in this dance so perfectly. She is a master at facials!
I was happily surprised at this competition at Sprague, because some of my favorite people were there! As I walked in, looking for a place to sit, I heard some folks calling my name, and it was our dear friends, Steve Daily, his daughter Heidi and her husband Troy. They were there to watch Heidi and Troy's son Brady, a senior at Sprague, perform in the Guy/Girl dance. I had a big time talking to them, and it turns out Heidi used to do dance team in high school, also, so Steve was very familiar with the way things worked. And bless their sweet hearts, they were able to pick Brailey out of the Snow White dancers. That isn't easy to do! Heidi thought they should have won their division by a mile, but they lost by .5 of a point (they got second). It was seriously fun to watch Brady do his dance, too. Them being there totally made my day!
And back to the present, as I mentioned above, Britt was down with the flu by Saturday afternoon. And by Sunday, he was really down. So unfortunately, he had to miss his last two games with his winter TRBO team. That made him sad, but he will soon be on to spring basketball, and we are looking forward to that adventure. Hopefully he will get over his flu bug today. Rosin, our pug, has been keeping him company on the couch. Ironically, this is the first year we've gotten flu shots, and apparently they were a bad mix and only about 30% effective. Oh well! We've kept healthy until now. Hopefully this will be the end of it. In any case, March is here and so is nasty weather. Our fingers are crossed for good health and warmer temperatures to finish the month out. As they say, in like a lion, out like a lamb!
