Summer Sports

Our summer schedule is largely determined by the different sports the boys are involved in.
At times it is difficult to be held hostage by football, basketball and swim,
but on the upside it gives the boys a lot to do and they are beyond tired at night.
They are in bed WAY EARLIER in the summer than during the school year.

Clark is up at 5am each morning and off to weight training and football.
He is home by 9am and then eats, sleeps for awhile and is off to basketball from 4-6pm.
I love seeing them active, happy and working hard.

Bennett starts swim team at 7am and then stays for two extra hours
for junior guard to help with swim lessons or swim team for the younger kids.
He is hoping to be a lifeguard for the City of Mesa in the next couple of years
 and possibly teach swim lessons in the future.
Each weekend in June, the varsity football team
 participated in passing leagues around the state.
These pictures were taken at NAU in Flagstaff.

Bennett is my only child to openly admit that he likes swim team
(although he doesn't look to happy here!)

The butterfly is his favorite stroke and he is good at it!

One of the summer highlights is basketball camp 
in Prescott at Embry Riddle Aeronautical College.
What is better than a week of basketball, cooler weather, all you can eat food,
and bunking in the dorms with all your friends?!

Bennett's best friends and roommates

116 boys attended camp and Bennett's team won the 3 on 3 championship for their age division.

These boys were each in a different age bracket
and even though they didn't see each other much,
it was fun to know that they were all there together!

Until next year....which unfortunately will be Bennett's last!
