Samuel's 1st basketball game was last Saturday. He loved it and did pretty good. It was so cute because they had the cheerleaders lined up and they turned off the lights in the gym and had the players run out of the "tunnel" as they were announced. They had a spotlight on them and everything. It was fun. Unfortunately because of the delay on my camera and because of a man who decided to walk right in front of me, I did not get a picture of Samuel as he was running through the tunnel. Luckily, they do this at every game, so I will get another opportunity. Here he is stretching with his team before the game. After running through the tunnel, eager for the game to start!
Here he is gaurding... someone.....(?)!
Here he is with the ball. He is actually a pretty good little rebounder. And he's also very good at being the first one to get to the other end of the court, something he is very proud of.
Samuel's biggest fan!
They give out awards after every game and each player gets an award. This week Samuel got the yellow star for sportsmanship. Way to go buddy!
Since I am playing catch up, I will be going back over the last few months and posting some pics from various big events in our lives over the last few months. Obviously moving from PA to NC was one of those big events. It was really hard to move again. We never particularly wanted to move to PA from KY, but it kind of grew on us after 3 years and it proved hard to leave. It is always the relationships you form with people that make moving so hard. We have really missed so many people but especially those from our church and our neighbors. Samuel has really missed his best buddy Justin too. They were in preschool together for 2 years and then were in the same kindergarten class last year until we left in March. Of course both of the kids have really missed the sweet little girl next door, Avery, and I have missed her too-- and Nikki. Now I am getting teary and have to stop. Moving is hard.

Samuel's 1st day of 1st grade
Samuel started school Aug. 20 at North Raleigh Christian Academy. He was really excited to finally be a "grader"! Nora Kate was a little grumpy since she had to get up so much earlier, but she pulled through.
