Day 283 of my 365 day challenge: I am pretty proud to post this picture. My oldest boy is in Basketball and today his team came in 4th place for Skagit County Parks and Recreation Boys swish basketball league for 8th grade "olympic" Division. My son was awarded the ONLY award that was given to the team for BEST sportsmanship. I am so proud of him because throughout the year a couple of times my husband and I talked to him about how its his attitude that will get him somewhere in life, and to not be angry if he doesnt win, shoot right etc. This trophy being given to him made us SO proud and to see that he was the only one on his team to be awarded a trophy makes this mom SMILE!! :)
