Having a Ball!
Clark and Bennett loved their time at Mountain View's Basketball Camp in Prescott. It was a little scary for mom to let them go for 5 days unaccompanied. Who would wake them up each morning? Require them to brush their teeth? Insist that they shower? Pick up after them? Remind them to say their prayers and read their scriptures? All these worries...for no reason at all! Bennett's first phone call home, just hours after being dropped off, reassured us that the fresh cut deli-meat at lunch was reason enough to love the place. Clark's first phone call informed us that he and Ryley had already read five chapters in the Book of Mormon and it was still the first day. At the end of the week, the parents were invited to watch the boys "perform". The drills and hustle were all very impressive. Grandpa Clark reminisced about the good 'ol days. Way back when, if you wanted to play ball, you just showed up to practice. No city leagues, no club teams, no summer camps. Just a love of the game. Those were the days!
