We had a lazy morning followed by a busy afternoon. As a family, we drove across town to watch the Robotics Team compete at Regionals. Then we drove to the other side of town to catch an OLPH JV basketball game.
We had just pulled onto the campus of San Joaquin Memorial when my principal called me asking if we were possibly coming to watch the game. I told him we were in the parking lot. He said, "Perfect! We need Evan to play!"
Turns out, the team was short a player due to some kids being sick and others competing in Robotics. Coach Washington pulled a jersey out of his car, and Evan was IN THE GAME!
I know I'm his mother, and I'm slightly biased, but that kid was amazing to watch playing against 5th and 6th graders! He was fast, he was aggressive, and he made three points...top scorer for his team!
Since he was so small compared to the other players, the entire crowd seemed to be cheering for him! Our team lost terribly (7-37), but Evan had a blast, and man was it fun to watch!
Another funny thing is how unexpectedly prepared he was to play. He was wearing navy blue shorts in the middle of winter, he had on tennis shoes, and a short sleeve jersey. At any given time right now he'd be in track pants, Adidas slider flip flops and a sweatshirt. He was meant to play today.

I offered to take my mom to Hollywood to her 50th High School Reunion. What an adventure we had! A good time, as always with the old people.
A quick stop in McFarland to get a Diet Coke from McDonald's. That was a crazy busy little parking lot. Not much else going on in that town but the action at McD's.
Another hour or so down the road, and we stopped for lunch at Marie Calender's. Tasty lunch. It's good to travel with mom...she gets a senior discount everywhere we go. Now is she could only get that discount for gas.

My goal this week is to drink a full bottle of water before going to school. I did it this morning. Now I am working on drinking water throughout the day. It helps to have a cute cup from Disneyland.

This doesn't mean I won't drink soda when I go to Chipotle, but I won't be buying it to drink at the house and school anymore.
