TEXAS IS HUGE


Did you know that TEXAS is a  HUGE state?

I'm talking about a lot of space and a lot of miles...


Say for example......a trip from Tyler to Lubbock.....

When you look at the map, the distance measures just a couple of inches... BUT...... it is actually about 471 miles, which equals about 7 hours and 11 minutes of traveling time.



GO   BEARS   GO

Our little Dribbler's Teams WON the Regional Tournament this weekend, which means we are heading to Levelland, Texas for the National Games...



I would like you to meet....Carson, our third grandson.....He was chosen as an ALL-STAR
for the Juniors basketball team....


And this is Tucker.....He is our 2nd grandson and he was chosen as an ALL-STAR for the major's basketball team.......

We are so proud of both of these guys and their TEAMS....In just two weeks, we will be loading up our vehicles for a {L..O..N..G}  trip out West..

We'll be leaving all the beautiful Pine trees behind and heading out to a part of TEXAS that seems to grow Wind Turbines!! 


I would prefer to Fly out there, but then I'd miss out on all the fun of traveling with the TEAM...

We have so many memories of traveling to Dalhart {when our daughter made ALL-STAR} ......many moons ago....The team got beat  the first game and was completely out of the tournament the next morning.  A long trip for nothing???? Not when you're traveling with us

Several families...including our family, loaded up that afternoon and took off for Colorado....We made a vacation out it!  The kids were elated to be traveling together and I don't think the topic of basketball was mentioned again...

Well....I doubt we will go to Colorado this year, because......The Brownsboro Bears are going to WIN!!!




Choose for yourselves this day whom you will serve.

How Exciting. and Congratulations to your handsome grandsons, Carson and Tucker. Your Grandloves have accomplished what a lot of others only dream of. You have every reason to show your pride. I remember the many times we have traveled such distances for our Loves and GrandLoves. It is part of our calling, isn't it. Have a great time at the tournaments. They are exciting.

Yes, Texas is a big state, I've been there several times and traveled across it. Thought I'd never get to my destination! My brother lived in Lake Jackson, Corpus Cristi and a couple of small towns. And in more recent years, my son lived in Austin and San Antonio. He knows how big it is for sure since his job requires lots of traveling! (You also have the biggest mosquitoes I've seen, too. LOL!)

Congrats to your handsome grands!! What fun! I remember those days of traveling to tournaments when my son played baseball and basketball. It was a blast. Have fun and good luck!

Congradulations to your talented grandsons! They are very handsome!! I have always believed it is not about the destination, it's about the journey, and I know yours will be a fun one!! I think sports is so important for kids in so many ways!! good health, sportsmanship, teamwork, an activity to keep them on the straight and narrow. Oh, I hope you will be taking pictures of the games!!!! Does your camera have a sports setting? That is awesome! And so are your grandsons!

Proud it's you!!!! My memories of Levelland always begin with the SMELL of some kind of mill between I20 and Levelland. Funny how your mind remembers some things but not others. It really is a fun time though, and I'm proud for all that are going. Know you all will have a fun time.
