Our son loves playing basketball.
For years, he's played in the driveway with Dad, at neighborhood courts and at school.
Here's Jake two years ago, when Dad was still able to beat him . . .
This year, Jake joined the inaugural class at a most amazing high school -- Oxbridge Academy of the Palm Beaches. Not only does the school provide exceptional educators and support staff, healthful meals and snacks, the latest in technology, a caring community and amazing opportunities -- like the chance to meet and interact with scientists, astronauts and Holocaust survivors -- they offer tons of sports, including the one Jake has enjoyed for years -- basketball.
Last night was the team's final home game of the season . . .
I'm happy to say they ended the game with a win. Go, Thunderwolves!
It's not a game until the uber-talented Allison Taylor belts out her rendition of the Star Spangled Banner. Allie has a superstar voice!
Here's Jake and Allie after the game . . .
And here's Jake with his wonderful coach -- Dwayne McClain (who played on Villanova's National Championship team in 1985).
Can't wait for tonight's game -- an away game -- the final one for the season. Looking forward to celebrating with the team and their families afterward. What a great community. What a great school. Thank you, Oxbridge Academy!
