Who on earth can look good in a basketball outfit like this? These uniforms are the original ones purchased when the school opened and they are ugly and uncomfortable I’m told on a regular basis. You should see the warm-up sweat suits…whoa…that’s a sight! Maybe it’s just because I’m her mom, but I think Morgan looks pretty darn cute! You couldn’t pay me to put that outfit on!
Today I needed to go to Morgan’s school to get her cello for a concert and I happened to be there at the same time as the basketball players were walking out of the school and getting on the bus to their ‘away’ game. It honestly choked me up! Those 8th grade girls getting on that bus with their giant bags of gear in their uniforms…it was precious. I spotted Morgan and I teared up. MoMo, I know you are going to make fun of me for that! They are stinkin’ cute and I’m proud of these girls for all the work they put into being student athletes. They practice everyday after school until 5:30 and many of them eat a granola bar in the car and go straight to soccer practice for another hour or more. When they finally get home, they generally have a lot of homework and in Morgan’s case, she has an orchestra concert to prepare for! These ladies are juggling a lot at the age of 13. Well I’m here to tell you that it does not go unnoticed by me! I’m your biggest fan and I commend you for what you do each day. I’m also embarrassed to admit that I circled the school twice trying to catch another glimpse of the BB girls and had a split second feeling that I wanted to follow the bus. I need help…I know. Like I said…I’m embarrassed!
Tuesday’s game was at Indian Trail (my alma mater!!) and Morgan cracked me up by saying how OLD the school was! ha! Compared to Prairie Trail, it is definitely an older school, but when I went to school there it sure seemed great! Thursday’s game was at Oregon Trail which is also an older school…you know…the bleachers are actually wood instead of heavy-duty plastic. I have to say I am really getting a kick out of going to all of these middle schools that I used to cheer at when I was in junior high! It’s very nostalgic and I swear they are doing the same cheers I learned back then. I can’t believe I’m a mom of a student playing sports at these schools now. Why is time passing so quickly!? It seems like yesterday that I thought I was hot stuff putting on that cheerleading skirt and hanging out with my friends at those schools.
Way to go huskies…a 22-8 win against the Tigers. It was a slow start…I swear it was 2-2 for almost half the game! Whew…glad that turned around! You can see it really caught Reece’s interest..
and Morgan’s too…ha!
Rock those OLD uniforms girls…See you at the next game! By the way, Reece is already asking if she can wear a PRT shirt. Get ready!
