Homeschool Basketball Tournament

Dawson and the Huntsville Mavericks attended the Homeschool Regional Basketball Tournament in Fort Worth.  It was incredible to see so many athletic homeschool kids out there playing basketball.  (Who knew this competitive, sporty subculture of homeschoolers existed?)

In the 14U division (the team Dawson was on), the Mavericks placed 6th in Division 2 (which included 16 teams) and 18th overall (including all 46 of the 14U teams).  The younger 12U team placed 6th out of 22 teams.  So overall, both teams did incredibly well.  But the best part of the tournament was getting to spend time with so many sweet homeschool families.  We all stayed at the same hotel so the boys spent time together at the pool, playing cards in the lobby, and hanging out in each other's rooms.  We had a great time and are looking forward to going again next year.
