They Grow So Quickly....

Tonight we celebrated the end of another Upward Basketball season.  Hundreds of students ages K - 6th grade gathered at the church to take part in various games as a celebration to wrap up the 2012 basketball season.  The players and cheerleaders were able to choose from inflatable games, face painting, dunk tanks, jousting, concessions, and so many other options.  The kids had a great time. I was excited to be working alongside my older son as we supervised one of the inflatable bouncy tents.  It didn't take long to realize he was much more interested in the text messages he received than supervising the tent.  He did give it a good effort for awhile but found an out when my wife was ready to leave.  It was worth a shot to think we could make it a good night, and to be honest, we did share some laughs and joke around with a number of children before he decided to call it a night.  I guess the older our children get, the more the memories change.  I have to learn to speak his language and accept the changes in his life as he grows.  I'm learning to accept the changes and make the most of the time we do spend together.
