Scrapbooking Basketball Season – How I Do It
Kate’s basketball season ends next week with State Tournament the last week of February. I was gathering photos last night for Senior night and decided to put together a layout for Kate’s scrapbook.
I decided to run with the new 6×12 inch page trend as I picked up a few 6×12 protectors at the American Crafts Warehouse sale in December. I am really excited to print it out and see it in her album. Here’s the front of the 6×12 page…
It always starts with tryouts that usually reveal results on your birthday. It seems like you were born to play. From November to February you have four games a week and practices everyday except Sunday. It isn’t uncommon for you to have bruises on your arms and legs from all the rough play. I sit in the stands and pray most of the time I’m watching you. I’ve seen you take elbows to the throat, chest, stomach, and face. I’ve also watched as girls purposely push and trip, hoping to injure you while refs stand idly by. You’ve come home with bloody scratches on your eyelids & face, twisted ankles, jammed and swollen fingers and still you love to play. You tell me that when you are on the court you are the happiest. It’s the closest thing you know to flying. I guess that’s what I love about watching you and capturing these moments – you can see it in your eyes, the happiness, freedom and LOVE you have for this sport. I LOVE that when you are really focused in a game you have a certain way you stick your tongue out – it’s Michael Jordan-esque. Basketball for you is also about shoes and socks. You have your favorite brands and colors – Nike Dri-Fit Elite socks and Nike 2011 Zoom Hyperdunk Shoes. Thankfully you’ve also been blessed with an awesome grandpa who makes sure you have what you need. I just want you to know that because of you I LOVE Basketball Season. Watching who you play is seriously one of my favorite things in life. I love you Kate.

I love watching this girl play. I love being a “basketball mom” even though it means I get a lot less sleep and there is so much more to do in a day – basketball is seriously one of my favorite seasons of the year!
