Friday night was Homecoming at Joe's school . . . and the last home game of his basketball career -- a bittersweet moment, for sure.
This is a picture of the team during a time out, gathered around their coach, which just happens to be my own dear husband! Alan certainly didn't know what he was getting into when he agreed to coach Joe's team this year! Shortly after he agreed to coach the team, their point guard left to attend another school, and the young team has been plagued by injuries, leaving him with only 5 players for most of the season, one of which had never played basketball before!! Nevertheless, it has been a challenge, but he and Joe, as the only senior and captain of the team, both continued to give 100% all season long, never giving up.
I really love this shot of Joe going up to snag a rebound! (With a vertical like that, it's no surprise that he has as many as 20 rebounds a game!)
Side note: See the ref in the background? That's our awesome pastor! :)
During halftime of the boys' game, they announced the homecoming court.
This is Joe's classmate, Gabby, and her father . . .
And this is another classmate, Aimee, and her father. Aimee and Gabby are two of three seniors on the girls' basketball team.
Aren't the crown bearers adorable??
Guess what?? Joe was chosen Homecoming King! He was crowned by his good friend and last year's king, Sam.
And Gabby was crowned Homecoming Queen!
Introducing the HCA Homecoming King and Homecoming Queen for 2012 . . .
The Homecoming Court had to stand there forever smiling for pictures. I kept thinking -- What on earth am I doing out here? An overweight, middle-aged woman, surrounded by fit and fabulous high school students???? LOL! ;)
So glad Abby was able to be here this year for the Homecoming Game and festivities! Check out the special shirt she made to wear for the game!
Isn't it Adorable?!?
Saturday night was the Homecoming Dance. Here is a picture of Joe and two of his teammates. Don't the guys look nice all dressed up??
Are you getting tired of looking at pictures of my handsome son yet?? LOL! OK, I'm almost done! ;) Let me just share a few pics of Joe and Abby all dressed up and looking fantabulous! :)
(I'm wondering if that's a gator in the water behind them??)
I think this is my favorite one . . .
Which picture did you like best?
