A house divided?
One of the hardest things to do, as a grandparent, is decide which activity to attend when your grandchildren are in two different school systems, 1.5 hours apart. While the parents, and also the grands, are very understanding that we can’t possibly make them all–and forgiving when we choose one over the other–it is still a very, very difficult decision.
This week in Kansas, State basketball tournaments are being held. Today all the boys’ teams will play in the 3A class…in Hutchinson…which is over two hours away. This won’t be such a difficult decision as only one of the grands’ teams will be playing…Hesston Swathers. We’ve watched them all year and they are very good. While they have no clue who we are–we have learned to recognize names and faces. We hope they win!!
Tomorrow, all the girls teams in 3A will play, same location. But because both Council Grove and Hesston are playing, it makes it a bit more difficult–although tomorrow they will not play one another so we can cheer for both!!
The two previous pictures are the Hesston Swathers, and Hesston Lady Swathers.
Below is a picture of our local Council Grove Lady Braves.
We are not actually a house divided. Our hearts are with each participant on these teams and we will cheer for all. Regardless the outcome–there are no losers.
