March Madness

If April showers bring May flowers, what does March bring? Basketball!

Detroit plays host to the Final Four in a few weeks, but more important around my house is the Michigan Homeschool Basketball tournament this weekend in Mt. Pleasant, MI. Both of my boys play on the varsity team where husband is also the assistant coach. If we win, we'll go the state finals the following week in Lansing, MI. If we lose, we go home, eat pizza, and pick our teams for the NCAA Finals. All this to say, I'll be gone the rest of the weekend. Go Firebirds!

For those who love basketball (and even if you don't) here's an inspiring video about two rival high school basketball teams to usher in March Madness and demonstrate that there is more to life than winning a game.

If basketball just isn't your thing and you would rather read something homeschool and family related, you may enjoy my article The Pressure to Perform republished today on the Heart of the Matter website.

UPDATE: The first game went right down to the buzzer with the final score of 60-57. With zero seconds on the clock the opposing team threw up shot, the ref called a foul and he went to the line to shoot three. Thankfully, he missed the first free throw to end the game.

Saturday, we played a very difficult team and lost, by a lot. All in all, it was a fun weekend but I'm glad basketball season is over.
