School sports tend to overlap and run together a little bit, so as a cheer family, we are constantly on athletic overload. I used to love football, but since my Knight introduced me to live basketball, I just might be a convert. Around here, junior high (8th and 9th grades) and high school (10th - 12th grades) basketball began in early December and just finished up Tuesday night. I will miss it. It's the only place in the world that I like the sound of squeaky shoes. On top of the two cheerleaders, The Boy played basketball this year also through the church program, Upward. The season ended for him Friday night. It was his last year to play for that league, as next year, he will be in 7th grade, which begins the school sponsored athletics programs in Arkansas.
This year, The Boy did really well. He did not play last year, so we were a little concerned about if he had fallen behind in ability level in comparison to the other boys, but he really was on track with everyone else. I was only able to see him play once, and from what my Knight says, The Boy just kept improving with every game. The Boy says it's because we bought him magic socks.

|Check out that form!|
|Triple threat, right there. I bet they have magic socks too.|
