This past weekend we competed at the Agape Hoops Swish N' Dish tournament in Lawrence, Kan. We won our first game on Saturday 61-20. After the game we enjoyed the hospitality of the Weatherford family at their farm outside of Lawrence. We ate barbecue and spent time with their family before heading home for the night.
On Sunday, we had two tough losses to start the day. losing 68-45 and 41-35, but bounced back to win our final game 45-21.
We'll return to the court this weekend at the USSA July Hoopfest at the KC Sports Lodge in Independence. The schedule is here.
We had our fifth job shadow this summer at Roe Body Shop. Paul Gustafson, Jerry Sosebee, and Carl helped Isaiah Williams and Kendrick Boggs understand about careers as auto mechanics.
Jerry showed us both the body work and mechanical side of Roe Body. After that, Coach Michael Loney let Roe Body and Carl change his oil. The boys loved learning from Carl. Isaiah even helped Carl as he found a screw in Coach Michael's tire.
Thank you Paul and the rest of the crew at Roe Body!
On July 1, we had four young men tour the Microsoft store at Oak Park Mall. Matt Streeter arranged the meeting, Lindsey Huckeby coordinated it, and Erik shared how Microsoft's goal is to enable people and businesses throughout the world to realize their full potential.
Erik showed us the store, shared Microsoft's business plan, answered all of our questions, and even let us play Xbox for a break! As you can imagine, the four young men loved the hands-on experience and learning from a guy who stressed that it is not where you come from, but the hard work and excellence you put forth in every day! We loved it!
Thank you Matt, Lindsey, Erik, and the whole Microsoft team!
