“You have to love a nation that celebrates its independence every July 4, not with a parade of guns, tanks, and soldiers who file by the White House in a show of strength and muscle, but with family picnics where kids throw Frisbees, the potato salad gets iffy, and the flies die from happiness. You may think you have overeaten, but it is patriotism.”
Kameron helped coach this past weekend AAU game. They won the tournament!
The weekend also included an appearance by Greece Athena graduate Jason “J-Mac” McElwain, who was there for the 3-point shooting contest. J-Mac, who is a high-functioning autistic, made national headlines in 2006 when he drilled six 3-pointers and scored 20 points in the last four minutes of a high school game against Spencerport. He earned the ESPY award that year for Best Moment in Sports.
McElwain, now an assistant coach at his alma mater, has made speaking engagements around the country. He’s even qualified for next year’s Boston Marathon.
“It’s awesome to come out to a small community like Palmyra and give back to the youth,” said McElwain, who has competed in four Macker tournaments. “For all the success I’ve had, giving back has always been important to me. I had fun playing basketball. The reason I coach is to impact youth.
Kelsie played her last softball game tonight for the championship. She just wanted a medal! She got a trophy… they won 19-18.
Her team is currently undefeated…take a look at her helmet!
This girl has style- tie dyed socks, bling on a pink helmet-looking good!
Her team lost the night I posted but won the next night 24-13 (Kels got a RBI), they are 8-1 (1 game cancelled, 2 more to go).
…with an eye made quiet by power
Of harmony, and the deep power of joy,
We see into the life of things…
Delaney had a dance competition in Syracuse this weekend. Her Jazz dance is called Waka Waka and they got a Platinum score for it (Highest Award). It also placed 3rd in the All-Around. Her Tap called Chocolate got a Platinum award and it got 1st Place in the All Around. It also won the Best costume award for that age group. It was a great weekend and the girls were thrilled with their performances. We got home yesterday and Bob cooked us a nice dinner and ended the weekend with a cake congratulating Delaney on her performances. That made her day!!
