We had to wait for these little guys to pass the road on the way to Springdale Bulldog Football Camp on Monday morning. ;)
He had several buddies at camp with him. :)
Lots of stretches and drills.
Lots of people were having NFL player (and former Bulldog), Damian Willams, sign their jerseys. Aiden however, asked this high school player to sign his. ;) The boy was so excited. ;) He said "I'm going to use this NFL player's back to sign your shirt!"
Aiden and his buddy Gabe. Both have T1D and are representing like rock stars!
Aiden with Tennessee Titan, Damian Williams. :)
Aiden also started Kiwanis Kids Day Football practice this week. So cute!
We decided have a little craft. We whipped up some paper mache stuff and made made some hot air balloons. This was phase 1. They took WAY longer than expected to dry so we didn't quite finish them. Hopefully, I can post the finished product soon!
Aiden had such a great time at Razorback Basketball Shooting Camp. It was a pretty small group with lots of individual attention. They learned that the key to good shooting was BEEF!
B - balance
E- Eyes (keep them on the back of the rim)
E- Elbows (keep them in)
F- Follow through
Aiden's buddy from school, Alexander, and his brother were at the camp too.
Scotty Thurman (current asst coach and former member of the 1994 National Championship team) was there helping out. (Red shirt, black shorts with ball under his arm. And also, he and Aiden were TWINS! They had the same shirt! Ha!
They said that the goal is so much bigger than you think and that should give you more confidence. They had Aiden and Alexander stand back to back to show that they could put the hoop over them.
They did lots of drills.
They had a shoot off at the end. Aiden was in the final 3! Alexander was in the final 2 in the next round! Talented boys!!
I have been married to my high school sweetheart and best friend, Matt for 15 years this past June. I am the mommy to the sweetest kiddos in the world, Emma and Aiden, and our kiddos with 4 legs Brinkley, Bella and Buddy. We love all things Disney, swimming, playing outside, laughing, spending time with family and most of all, Jesus! On August 18, 2010, our life was forever changed when Aiden was diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes. And again on December 28, 2013, when we were notified that he tested positive for Celiac Disease. In keeping with Romans 8:28, ...we know that God causes all things to work together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.
