iPods and basketball!

Cody made the basketball team again this year for his middle school team. We are very proud of him!  The first team practice is today from 8:00 to 12:00. Because his mom is not an early riser (she would do it, but I don't mind at all!) and he wanted his new iPod set up he came to spend the night with me last night. It was very nice!  We watched two movies together, the second was my favorite, The Pistol: The Birth of a Legend, about Pete Maravich.

It was the perfect movie in a couple ways: one, because it was about basketball, two, because the movie was about Pete when he was in 8th grade.

When the movie was over Cody and I looked up about his career and life. It's quite amazing that he did as well as he did because he died at age 40 due to a congenital heart defect. He was born without a left artery (I think that was it), which is what supplies blood to the heart muscle! He was with James Dobson when he passed away, he was playing a pick up game of basket ball and had said he was feeling great shortly before he passed away.

Cody and I got into bed a little before 1:00, but after all the tomfoolery we were probably settled a little after 1:00 and the alarm rang at 7:00! We ran to Walmart to get a couple of things and we were the first ones to practice this morning, but that's the way Cody likes it!  In that way he's much like me...he doesn't like to be late and wants to be early!  :)

Haley is doing well too!  I will have stuff to write about her soon...she is doing ballet and loves it!  She will have a recital December 10th so you will hear and see all about it then!

  1. Hi Karen!
    Congrats to Cody on making the team!
    That is great that Haley is taking ballet. Kelly teaches ballet to ages 3-9.
    Take care, have a wonderful weekend.
