I Have A Dream!

The Optimist Club, which Jarrod belongs to (for free lunch on Wednesdays), sponsors a basketball competition at the local Boys and Girls Club.
Sawyer's trying the bounce pass, which has to get through or hit a hole in a board.

Every Martin Luther King school holiday, they gather kids from all the clubs together...

... and have a three part competition, where the age bracket winners advance to a regional competition.
Porter's playing knock-out for warm-up.

Here Cooper's dribbling around cones, for speed.

Hunter's trying his hand at the free throw shots, just for fun.

These SIX bikes were given away in a drawing. Don't they look magical?

Everyone came away a winner! The boys are waiting for the results to be scored.

Surprise! Cooper tied for first in his bracket, and gets a new basketball to take home.

SURPRISE! Cooper wins a bike!

"Mom, is it my lucky day?"
