The day started as a typical Saturday morning during the month of January for the Skattebo clan. Caitlyn's first tournament game of the day began at 10:10 in a town about 30 miles away (south), so we were actually able to have a relaxing morning, allowing the girls to sleep until 8:00.
Once we arrived on-site, Candace said..."Hey, we were just here last night!"
Yup. Cassie's HS JV game was in the same town; same gym...
The Country Cozy crochet afghan was taken along, and a few rows were completed between plays and games.
However, halfway through Caitlyn's second game, we had to skitter off to the NEXT BB tournament, 35 minutes away (east), for Candace's FIRST ever game. Thankfully, a close friend was able to 'mother' Caitlyn for the rest of the tournament; it takes a village, right?!
The fifth grade team is low on numbers this year, so Candace was asked to suit up as a fourth grader to help out. Being the youngest of three sisters, she DEFINITELY is living up to be the stereotypical 'little-sister-gym-rat;' the one who has been on the sidelines, watching for all these years. And now, she's ready to play! Her nerves were apparent, but she settled in nicely with the teammates and had a blast. And as it should be with most parents, I simply LOVE watching m'girls, win or lose.
Our Laker girls!
