B@by Sh@q

Brandon is #5 playing defense in this picture. This is just the second game of the season.

Spending some down time on the bench with coach.

Warm up. One of his friends, Kyle, is in the backgrown. He used to spend so much time at our house that I used to make sure I had enough extra snack food for him:)

Just after a shot! This team has started off slow but has begun to gel together and trust each other, just as we have to do in life. You may be wondering about the title. My son's friends at school have given him the nickname of B@by Sh@q thanks to how tall he is and how big his feet are. He wears a size 12-13 depending on the shoe and Brandon is only 13!! I sure hope his feet quit growing soon or else I am going to have to take a mortgage on the house to pay for his shoes. For all you blog stalkers out there, feel free to leave a comment:)

Looks like fun! We are not the basketball family anymore. The kids played when they were really young. Now it is that funny game with a ball and a stick! Of course, I should through in swimming and football. Well, good luck with basketball season! I'll cheer from here!

Wow, he is so big! I wonder what my boys will be like when they are that age (considering the fact that my husband is 6'1" and I am 5'11").

How fun! OMGosh, he wears a size 12-13 shoe? That's huge? He's huge! Bball is in my blood. I grew up with it. My dad coached at BYU and UNL. Gotta love the sport! Have a wonderful Valentine's day.

Poor boy needs to grow into his feet! Both his uncle and Grandpa (on my side) have big feet. I will be broke soon as the shoes are getting into the size of special order. Erin, you guys are going to be rowing in the same boat as us:)
