Michael had invited me and the kids to come watch him play basketball at the stake center tonight. Since it’s still so cold outside I thought it would be good for the kids to get out of the house and watch their uncle.
Jared had no intention of going when he got home from work. He didn’t really even want me and the kids to go. He wanted to stay home and relax, but since I had been getting the kids ready to go and had been talking to them about what we were going to do it didn’t go over so well. But Emma quickly took care of that. All she had to say was, “But daddy I wanted to see you play basketball”, while looking really heartbroken. Jared disappeared upstairs for a few minutes and then came down dressed to play basketball. I gave him a questioning look and he just shrugged his shoulders and said that he couldn’t disappoint her 🙂 .
The team lost, but the kids didn’t care. They screamed and yelled out his name every time he set foot on the court.
With the season just starting I think this could be a fun couple hours out of the house.
