Ace Starts Basketball

Ok B-ball, here we go.
Time to dribble, pass and throw.
Excited to start something new.
We hope he'll score a goal or two.
 But should he not score even one... 
...the true goal really is just fun.

Made Jonathan shush
as I listened with strain.
What could that be?
He said, "Kelly it's rain." (in a mighty sarcastic tone, if I may add)

Well, we don't get much;
I'd forgotten its sound.
 Good thing I keep Jonathan
"my genius" around.
 That very same day
just wouldn't you know
another rarity fell
that thing known as SNOW!
 So I ran to the kids
Got them dressed...or, I TRIED,
slapped on their coats
and threw them outside.
 They threw up their hands
and stuck out their tongues,
& giggled and shouted
at the top of their lungs,
Of course, they got cold
and inside we did go.
Though it didn't last long
we enjoyed the snow!

We tried something NEW
for New Year's day.
Though it was cold
we got out to play.
 The City of Boerne
went to great measures,
to hide geocaches
so we went hunting treasures.
 It's called "geocaching"
but we call it fun.
Can't wait to repeat
now our first time is done.
 Coordinates are given
and you drive around,
using GPS
till your cache is found.
 This beginner's hunt
was great for a start.
That darn GPS
was the hardest part!
 We acted like pirates
and just had a bash,
and froze like fools
during our geocache.
(This was our attempt at being out-doorsy; which Jonathan and I always kid ourselves that we are.)
