Basketball Camp 2011

Last week we were back in Waco (yes we have spent most of June in Waco and at the lake!) for Baylor Biddie Ball Camp. It is a basketball camp for boys ages 4-7 so both Stacey and Wyatt got to go, as well as Ryan who is a veteran of the camp.

This particular week I was without a car so Angie and some other friends graciously took my boys back and forth, (THANK YOU!) but on Thursday the twins and I ventured out to observe just what these boys had been up to and and I have to say it was awesome! I would highly recommend it to anyone with a sports loving boy.
To say they were excited would be a huge understatement, everyday they were asking, "Is today the day we get to go to basketball camp?" Finally it was time!!
Wyatt and Charley. Charley is one of my BFF Lauren's little boys and Wyatt thinks he is the coolest! I love this picture because my Wy-Guy hasn't reached that stage where he is too cool to hug his buddy, and you can tell just how excited he is.
Coach Drew starting things off with some inspirational words and a few push ups.
A little running game to get things started. Stacey III takes his athletics very seriously. The facilities are fantastic and the boys got to enjoy them all.
Wyatt was in the youngest group and they were edible in their little basketball get up. The Baylor players (past and present) are the "coaches" of each group and Wyatt's coach was Mamado, who just happens to be 7 feet tall. He was enamored.
Dribbling, no problem (hilarious I'm telling you).
Relays
Ohhh blocked it, I think he might have an unfair size advantage. ;)
At the end of camp all the boys got a basketball and camp t-shirt - they were super excited!

Coach Drew was really great with these guys.
Wyatt & Mamado
This kid's got skilz!!
It was a great week and we can't wait for next year!
And in a few more years...
:)
We've got to get these kids back in the Red and Black Red Raider garb they are accustomed to quick!! But I have to give BU some serious props for a great camp. :)

Is this not the cutest thing in the universe????????? Oh my goodness. How am I going to wait 2years for Bubba to go???????? And, Sean feels your same sentiments---a little too much green/gold for his liking, but, you gotta back the Bears. :)

Totally missed the boat this year on this. Will make a point to carve this out for next summer as we won't have Starburst anymore. Justin would eat this up! Sic 'Em!
