In the news....again :) (Proud Mommy Moment)

In the news again.  I just love having a smallish enough town where the local paper covers the local sports and your child has a chance of getting their picture/name in the paper.

Kisses from Katie

I'm going to promote two things today. 

The first is a blog by someone I knew growing up.  She is a writer now and also has a blog where she reads, and reviews Christian books.  If you are looking for something new to read that is Christ-focused, I recommend her blog.  There's some great books there.

The other day I randomly clicked on one of the books that she reviewed.  I downloaded it on my Nook, and started reading it yesterday.  That book has consumed my thoughts for the past 24 hours. 

"Jesus wrecked my life." 

That was the tag line that hooked me.  How can you possibly say that Jesus wrecked your life? 

I completely understand now.

It's a book about a young girl who traveled to Uganda on a 1 year commitment....and never left.   In the book she talks about how God has used her to make an incredible difference in the lives of the children and families in life at a time. 

The book is called "Kisses from Katie"  and it's written by Katie Davis.  Also, check out her blog!

Tracey's picture was in the paper!!

My daughter's first basketball picture in the Silver City paper!!  It was a great shot of her driving the ball with her left hand!!

It was the Jan 11 edition of the paper.  You go girl!

Sports photography- not my strong suit.

A new camera makes a huge difference.  Looking at pictures by my old camera is almost painful. 

Aaron is much better with it than I am.  He took the above pic in Santa Fe last week against St. Mike's.  I got my first crack at the camera tonight on my own and did...okay. 

We still have much to learn with this camera, so good thing there's lots more basketball left this season :)

Oh...they won tonight, by the way.  It was a nail biter...winning by only 1 point against Chaparral High School.  Tracey played awesome and scored 6 points tonight.
