Go Blue Jays!!

I am so proud of my boys!! This month at school they each got "Cub of the Month." Cool right? What I think is even cooler- their teachers didn't talk to each other about who they were going to choose. They each chose each of my boys on their own!! How cool is that?!?! I am so proud of them!!! Their lockers were decorated at school and they were each given this:

Two free tickets each for the Creighton Men's Basketball game! At the bottom of these tickets it said sponsored by Hy-Vee. When the boys told me they were cub of the month they all excitedly told me that they got gift certificates to Hy-Vee. I couldn't figure out why their school would give them gift certificates to a grocery store, until they showed me these. I explained what these really were and they were way more excited to be cub of the month!! :) It was funny.

So Thursday night we took them to the game. We weren't sure how it would go. They had never been to a basketball game- honestly I had never been to a basketball game. That isn't really my sport of choice. But we figured we could leave anytime so why not go? Plus, they seemed excited about it. So off we went.

We found out seats....

We got some grub.

And watched the game.

It was a blast!! Alex REALLY got into the game.

It was hilarious to watch!!

We may have a future Creighton student on our hand.

Or a die hard sports fan. All his cheers and head slaps- It was awesome!!

As for Josh and Zach- they enjoyed it too, but not as much as Alex. They watched but didn't cheer much. I think Zach enjoyed having a Pepsi the most!! He rarely gets pop and when he does he is really happy about it!

We left at half time because the boys were running out of steam. I am so glad we went. I love doing fun things with my family!! And they completely deserved this night!! They are really great kids!!


  1. How awesome that they all got cub of the month at the same time! And what a fun reward. Corndogs and Pepsi and all!

  2. I love that they thought they were getting grocery store gift certificates. Just what every cub of the month wants! Glad you guys had such a great time.
