Luke played his first season of basketball this year through the Wylie Basketball Association. He's had a great time learning the basics with his besties Maeson & Traviss. Leo is assistant coaching too, so it's a learning experience for all. It's a good thing the boys got their first real basketball hoop for Christmas. They practice every day the weather is good. The season is almost over, but it's been a great indoor activity for Luke during these cold winter months. And, even though he looks more like a little linebacker, I think he'll want to play again next year. Go Canes!
This past week I gave Cruzie his first big boy haircut. Until now, I've just snipped a little here and a little there, but this time I just kept going. Maybe it was the random comment I heard someone made that it looked like he had a mullet. Maybe it was the fact his hair really was getting longer than mine. Regardless, Cruz officially has a haircut. I saved the locks in his baby book. So bittersweet to see my last baby boy growing up. He's such a sweetie and I'm so very blessed.
Today Luke and I had some special one-on-one time. We had to run some errands, but decided to make it a Mommy/son date day by stopping at Olive Garden for lunch.
We talked a lot about school. Luke's favorite subjects in 1st grade are math, reading, art, computer lab..."really all of them," he said. When I asked his least favorite, he didn't have one! He has 5 best friends, but his real BFF's are Maeson & Traviss.
I took the dining opportunity to teach Luke about being a gentleman, using good manners, how to place his napkin in his lap & how to order our meals.
He was so sweet & happy. He said he felt very special! My mission was accomplished! Not much more I can ask for.
Next week, it's Noah's turn. I'm excited to see where he wants to go on his special day.
