It was a tough year for the DMS 8th grade team this year. They lost every game by less than 10 points and in some cases less than 5 or 3 points. Mishonne was the high scorer this year with almost 100 points scored total. She is excited to play highschool basketball. This will be Sandra's last year to coach Mishonne's teams.
Mishonne's Birthday was such a hit that we used all of our supplies to have another Amazing Race party for Logan. The boys had a ball. There were 4 team with 2 to 3 boys on them. We cooked appetizers from the different coutries that they "traveled" to. Adults were the chaperones and taxi drivers for their group.
Mishonne decided to paint the girls' gaces and dress them up in MardiGras fashion.
Each year the kids draw names the week before Valentine's Day and have to give secret acts of kindness or put something in their Valentine bag. I then make a red and pink dinner on Valentines Day and we open our secret Valentine gifts.
The New Years Parties that we usually go to were cancelled this year so we decided to do our own. We had the Nicols and Kaeli and Matt Bonham over for Gumbo and fireworks. It was fun and eventful when a firework fell over that went shooting at us across the field.
Mishonne turned 14 on Dec. 10th and it was her year to have a birthday party so we made up a party based on the Amazing Race show. There were 4 teams and they travelled around to different locations representing countries. A chaperone drove them if needed and they had clues to help them find the next location. ONce at a location they had to complete challenges to move on. Mishonne's team ended up winning. The girls all had so much fun.

I love dressing the kids on Christmas Sunday. They look so adorable.
