Thanks Coach

Hello again!  Last month was "March Madness" for you basketball lovers, that includes our family.  Well, actually my hubby and my son love to watch the games on TV.  I would much rather be at the game than to watch it on TV.  Anyways, last month was also the end of the basketball season for my son and his team.  We hated to see it end, due to enjoying the game and seeing our son gain a great amount of confidence in himself and learning a lot along the way.  He was even just beginning to gain new friends, which was great!  The great thing was that he got to play on the 2 teams.  He was in between ages so they allowed him to play on the younger guys team and also the high school team.  We were so proud of him.  He was so shy at first and by the end of the season all the younger guys, really seemed to enjoy being around him.  The high school team was mostly made up of seniors, that have played together for quite awhile.  They were a great team and played really well with each other, so well that, in the league, they were undefeated.  Woohoo!  They were a tough team!  Great Job guys!  Again we are so proud of all of them!  With having so many players for each team we needed several coaches too.  Our son had a total of 5 couches.  They are all great men to look up to.  They were very patient in teaching him how to improve his skills and how to do the drills and plays.  We were really grateful for their willingness to do all that they did for our son and for the teams.  So I knew I had to make them a "Thank You" card at the end of the season.  So this is what I came up with!  You will notice that the one card looks very much like the one I made for my son's birthday...well I liked the design so much that I had use it for his coaches too.  The only real difference is the ribbon and the orange background paper.  Well, I hope they liked their cards!
