Tuesday, January 31st, 2017 - Jackson got in the game against North Stokes with just enough time to knock down a 3 pointer, which earned him a shout out in the local paper. 

Monday, January 30th, 2017. The family spent a nice weekend off the grid, relaxing at the cabin.  We replaced the broken steps to the loft, cleaned up a little, cooked some great food on the cook-stove, watched movies and slept hard.  I think the cabin is River's new favorite place.

 

Thursday, January 12th, 2017.  Ben knocked down three corner 3s and made multiple steals, including one in the closing seconds to seal the win!

Wednesday, January 11th, 2017.  We had our first snow of the season this past Friday.  8 inches fell in Mount Airy, just before temps dipped into single digits, which meant that it stuck around.  Schools were closed Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday.  Ben, Amy and I sent sledding Saturday afternoon.  Jackson spent Friday night at his friend Grey's house, then Saturday night at his friend Tanner's.  He then spent two nights at his friend Will's house, so we have not seen a lot of him lately.   Ben had his friend Matthew over Sunday night, then stayed at Matthew's house Monday night.  On Sunday, Amy, Ben and I went to the movies to watch Star Wars: Rogue One.  Most of my snow photos are of River, he is just as crazy about snow this year as he was last.

      

Wednesday, January 4th, 2017.  Jackson saw his most extensive time on the court and knocked down his first ever varsity basket.  I thought he played great, both defensively and offensively.
