Basketball & a few other things
Zoe and Emily had basketball tryouts last week for the Middle School teams. Zoe made the A team! She is very happy that she made the A team after ONE tryout. :-) Emily is an alternate for the B team, which is AWESOME! This is the first year that the basketball program has been open to 5th graders, so Emily is lucky to be able to practice with the B team. She won't play in any games, unless one of the players can't play and she gets picked to play, but she is going to learn a lot and improve her game as she practices. :-)
Emily earned this certificate from Matt a few weeks ago for being such a great helper around the house without being asked. We LOVE it when the kids see a need and fill it without being told to do so!
Zoe participated in the Honors Festival for band a few Saturdays ago. Her best friend, Morgan was there, too! They practiced all day with a guest conductor and then they put on a concert in the evening. Matt and I weren't able to attend the concert because we were at Stake Conference, which was a bummer, but Zoe was happy that she was able to have this experience.
