A Winning Week

Well, life at our house has been interesting this past week. Of course, I already told you about Ian winning for his awesome Valentine box. On Saturday, he had his last basketball game and grandma and grandpa came to watch since they were picking him up for a sleepover anyway. Now Ian's team hasn't been the best. I think before this game they had won one or two games and they'd played five. This was game six. At one point in the game, Ian had the ball passed to him and actually managed to get it and dribble for a few seconds before he stepped out of bounds. That's huge progress for him! This year was his first time to play basketball ever!
The other team was good and they were ahead of us before we had a chance to even get going. I didn't hold out much hope, but our team rallied and they won! How exciting! It was even more exciting when we were told that we just beat the first place team! Hooray!
Then Ian was off to spend a couple of nights with grandma and grandpa and Colin and I had some much needed couple time. We went out to dinner Sat. night and then watched Fireproof. Sunday we made it to church (late again, but at least we realized it wasn't only Ian who has been making us late. We need to get up earlier on Sunday morning). The rest of Sunday was spent relaxing at home.
Monday afternoon we picked up Ian and ran a few errands. We finally found Wii Fit in stock so we bought one, it's been a blast so far!
Tuesday I started trying to reset my internal clock, so I started getting up around 7 or 7:30 which meant everything started earlier which has been a good thing at our house.
Last night (Wed.) I asked Colin to tag along with Ian during AWANA so we could see how he is behaving. Colin didn't want to , he wanted to watch a movie instead, but I said I really wanted him to tag along, so he did. Good thing he did, it turned out to be the night where Ian got clubber of the month. I was misty eyed for my sweet little boy. It might sound silly, but the clubber of the month award caused much heartache and anxiety in our household last year. Ian wanted that award so bad he could taste it and then several of his friends won the award. He wasn't happy for them, he was jealous and angry that he didn't win. We had several serious discussions about it. I finally told him to stop thinking about it so much and just do what he was supposed to do and tell God what was in his heart. So it was a sweet moment Wednesday night for my son to be called up to receive the award that his heart had longed for so long.
What a week for winning moments!
