Basketball season has begun

Last week was Tribe Basketball's home season opener. We love Tribe basketball - Chris because he used to play, me because it gets me out of the house in the winter, and Eleanor because she has friends there. Eleanor surprised me last week though; she was totally into the game (in between running around with her friends). She stood on her chair and clapped, started putting her hands up in the air and swooshing them down for free throws, and yelled "Go Tribe" over and over again. We sit across from the student section, so she was basically copying what they did. It was also Jane's first basketball game, and she, too, did well, but of course had no idea what was going on.

Miss Jenni, one of the coaches' wives invited Eleanor to come along to the snack stand this year with the big girls and Eleanor came back with a king size Snickers bar. She had suggested popcorn, but Eleanor stuck to her guns and came back with a giant chocolate treat, hah. She then proceeded to eat it length-wise, perhaps the messiest way imaginable (though she surprises me daily with new depths of messiness). 

Anyway, we are looking forward to the season, and the Tribe is currently 3-1, so hopefully it'll be a good one!
