No 2 - Champs
We made it to the final game where we lost by 1 point. So proud of these boys and their sportsmanship. The coach said he got lots of compliments on how the team conducted themselves.
This was a lot harder on my son that I thought it would be. When I approached the bench, I saw some tears (from the other boys), I looked at my son and told him good game, and he just dropped his head. After the awards ceremony we all met at a new local yogurt shop and celebrated a great season (again). By the time we got home, my son was upset. He said this was his favorite coach (he meant coaches) and he is going to miss his teammates. After lots of hugs and words of encouragement, looking at the Scorpion website and the video daddy made, things were better.
My son attends a private school and 2 of the other guys on the team attend the same school, they are going to wear their jerseys tomorrow and the coach asked the principal to recognize them when they do the morning prayers and announcements.
Last week, my son pre-coordinated with his teacher to bring in his trophy and she said yes...so it should be a good day tomorrow.
