Today was a busy, but fun day. I went into Kaufman to have lunch with a friend at The Tea Room. The potato soup was awesome, and would have been even better if I had asked for a dollop of sour cream on it!
Anika's team, the Dallas Jr. Wheelchair Mavericks played an exposition game at the half time of a game from a school that does a lot to support them. (Whew! Did you understand that??) It was way up on the north side of Dallas, about an hour and 15 minutes drive. Kern found a Thai restaurant in that area with excellent reviews, and since this ares is DEVOID of any good Thai food, we decided to go there before the game. Yep! If I ever get back to that area, we will certainly go back. The game was a lot of fun. There were kids there from the prep team, JV, and Varsity, so the 'game' they played was pretty tame. The Varsity kids did a great job of pacing themselves with the Littles (the young kids, really ARE little!), so it wasn't the fast paced, chair crunching, floor kissing game we usually see. They were very aware of the Littles, and even made sure they got to handle the ball often. Makes this Mama proud! I meant to get a picture, but totally spaced it. Sorry. NEXT time! I plan to go with them to their next tournament in Birmingham, Alabama next weekend, so I'll try to get some shots to share from there.
I'll leave you with this picture I took of Kae a month ago. We had some friends visiting, and NONE of us could believe the size of this CAT!! He topped out at about 32 pounds! Kae just HAD to get a pic of him! What a great squeeze!
