What a fun night we had tonight at the WCS basketball team banquet to celebrate the Div 3 state championship win last month. They did a great job hosting a dinner/event at the Pleasant Valley Country Club. The coaches and athletic director had so many nice things to say about all the players and it was fun to catch up with the other basketball families. The funny thing was that my neighbor and I consulted each other about what to wear. The invitation said 'semi-formal' and they boys were asked to wear dress pants and ties. So Monique and I figured it was a dress and high heels event. I even wore pantyhose and my pearls. Well, we were the only females there in dresses. Not a problem, we figured it was better to be overdressed than underdressed so we weren't bothered.
I took a video of coach Bajema presenting Eric with the 'trophy' bag. Inside was a nice jacket, a team photo, a DVD of game highlights, two tee-shirts and his varsity letter for the season. Coach Bajema did a great job saying some funny and personal things about each of the boys. I love that he encouraged all the boys - not just in their basketball training, but in being successful in life.
And here is a photo of my two boys. Aren't they handsome?
