Tonight was the big draft night...dum dum duuuuuuuum *dramatic music*
Miranda had gone through her yearbook last night and narrowed it down to six little girls she would like for me to pick. Wasn't that nice of her? It was me and six other coaches for the 3rd/4th grade draft. I picked #3, right in the middle. In the first round you got to pick your kid and then two other choices. Would you believe #1 and #2 picked four out of the six girls from Miranda's list???? Sheesh! So at least she got two of her choices right?? After that I didn't really care because I really didn't know any of the other names so I was looking at what grade the girl was in and what size shirt they ordered. I know, some selection criteria huh?
Oh the other fun pick we had to do was to pick our team name aka color of shirt. In past years they had really bright cute little girlie color shirts - bright green, light pink, light blue etc etc. Not this year, they decided to go with the standard league teams/colors which are that of the Big 12 Tournament. Hmmm no girlie colors there so I did the next best thing and picked to be the Missouri Tigers because they are yellow and black which just happen to be our Paola Panther school colors!!! Thank you thank you...I did good, Miranda even thought so! Of course when I called Miranda to tell her who I got for the team, her first question was...are we the pink team? Then I had to explain it and she was good with it.
I got home and called the parents of all 6 of my little girls and they were happy to hear from me, especially Miranda's two friends. One more week til game time!! The season starts on Sept 6th and runs through Oct 25, then there is a tournament that last weekend. Games are every Saturday morning.
My one dilema is...who am I going to teach how to use my brand new camera to take pictures of the first sport my daughter has ever played since I won't be able to????? ARG!!!
