Last Home Game Eva

Long time no talk! Sorry about that. But, the most important thing happened a few nights ago that all of you need to know about.... My dad had his last home basketball game EVER!! He is retiring after 31 years in education/coaching. These are a few of the pictures from Tuesday night's big win!!

Lining up the chairs before every game... OCD

Papa and Aidan

They gave him a rocking chair with his name engraved on it.

As you can see... he didn't get those cheeks from my dad.

Ally we need to get Emily's copy of this picture- I think hers came out better.
By the way- we are going to be in the White County paper... I am going to be famous :-)

Future STAR
He moves so quickly that you can't even capture him well on camera

Will now give kisses. BEST FEELING EVER! Getting a kiss from your child who actually means to give you one!

Pre-Game pep talk

Losing at the end of the 1st quarter

Post game press conference!

Post-game radio interview

I can't believe there aren't going to be any of his games next year!! It is such a part of him!
For the rest of this season: They had a coin flip with North Hall for 2nd/3rd and they ended up winning it. So, now they play thursday and if they win they go to STATE!! WOOHOO!

  1. I tried to find a way to send you a message privately. Today is definitely one of my weirdest internet moments. My teenage daughter was in the dance studio and I was in the car blog hopping and google the name of a former GA tech volleyball player a friend had mentioned her blog to me. Well anyway instead I landed on your blog and read for a few minutes cause I'm weird like that. I was very surprised to realize I recognized your father. I immediately called my mom and forwarded it to her for confirmation. I came home and looked in my old year books and yes it was the same person. Gosh he hasn't change at all since the 80's. He taught and coached at Campbell of Fairburn when I was in the 8th and 9th grade, I was 13 and 14 way back then. My 3 kids thought it was very weird, they can't believe I recognized someone I haven't seen since I was 14 but agree after seeing yearbook photos and this blog he looks the same! Anyway, I just wanted to share this because it was very strange for me. I live in NorthEast GA about 45 miles northeast of Athens. I left Fairburn in 1988 for college. BTW You have a beautiful little boy!
