Kamryn with his new hair stylin
Angel his stylist here in
Tarpon Springs at E&E !
He has his hair looking like the star he is, with an attitude of great gratitude for his summer of wonder, living the dream!
Now ready to get home and begin a year of great things in school he has had his dream become a reality.
This is the last day of vacation here in Florida with my jumpman Kamryn
and oh we have surely had the best of times!
I have had the best exercise balling with those hoops in the pool that I can remember!
Maybe I should leave that net up and continue the motions of shooting those hoops even if my Kamryn is not here
for my arms and upper body strength, but it sure wouldn’t be as much fun
as I was in the role of mentor and coach and watched as he made
71 in a row this past week.
Good I was in the water since it didn’t hurt when I fell out
on the number 71 in a row that kid shot!!!
We laughed and I hollered over that focus!
that’s what I’m talking about.
Now wouldn’t it just figure here on our last day together the skies would open to rain and what is looking to be a dreariness fill rainy day as we now face our “so longs” until the next time?
I remain hopeful that this rain and thunder will give way to a sun filled afternoon, as we make our way into our last evening together though,
we have shot more hoops than I can count, seen movies, and last night started a new tradition for a Friday night dinner of?
to celebrate his practicing
and once he gets home
he will rest for the night and then on Monday he will go to and meet his new baller friends at the
AAU in Christiansburg VA.
Yes one more basketball camp for the Kamryn before the school year of 2012 begins!
This time he will do a 3 day camp at the
and then in October our boy will try out under the leadership of
Julia Skinner there who directs the
AAU NRV ELITE TEAM
of southwest Va.
He is over the moon about that,
as it is nothing but balling to teach, lead, mentor kids on basketball while competing in tournaments in travel under the leadership of Coach Skinner and her staff of Coaches that are tough yet caring and compassionate as they work with these kids and develop their passion and skills.
Striving for Excellence
I like that alot.
It takes a village to support and love and nurture.
During times of sun, rain, hail,
and even those times of great drought, when together we can do incredible things while showing our faith in a dream, a person, a child.
Teaching one to believe in self
and fostering kindness in others.
Yes it is true,
what you put out does not always come back;
yet imagine if we didn’t try.
Rise and GRIND
the motto of the NRV ELITE
and one that all would benefit from adopting.
Looking at the rain as liquid sunshine, knowing that all are being watered and nurtured, and will grow.
Taking the time to put it out there, to let it be known, nurtured and to wait and see the splendor
oh the splendor
of the dreams
and the beauty after the storms.
CReate the day you imagine
and be your STAR
the thunder is the drum
“Those who danced were once considered insane by those who could not hear the music”
Dance like everyone is watching and just have fun with it;
focus, dance, shoot the hoop dear ones!
