We attended the sports banquet at Holiday Inn on May 12. It was my daughter's first time attending as we didn't attend last year. She wanted to attend last year but we couldn't because of our move and other conflict in schedule. This year, I asked her if she wants to attend and she said no but I signed her up anyway because I wanted her to experience it.
The food was catered by Undo's Restaurant.
They were given their certificate. My daughter only played volleyball so that's the only sport she was part of for the ceremony. I was encouraging her to try the track but she seem so unsure about it so I didn't push the issue. Maybe next year, she will try it. She told me that she wants to go with me on my jog this summer so she would be ready for next year so we will see. We actually went for a morning run today (Memorial Day) and I think she did good. If we keep up with the training, she will build her endurance and I think she can do track next year.
Some of her friends will be attending the volleyball camp this summer but she didn't want to do it.
My son's friend was there at the banquet too and she sat with us.
After the awarding ceremony and dinner, players are allowed to stay and dance. We gave our daughter a little freedom and left her with her friends even though she was not sure if she would want to stay or not.
She said she did not really enjoy it so she said she won't be staying for the dance next year. It was nice going there though, she get the chance to be with her friends. Dancing is my son's kind of fun but not my daughter but I still wanted her to experience it. Our son will be part of it next year so maybe he could stay and be with her sister. We will see.,
Football season is going to start soon. I am bummed that we didn't get to enroll the kids for the spring season of tennis. Maybe we would be able to do it this Fall, we will see.
Looks like you and your family had a great time! Sports banquets are so much fun!ReplyDelete
What a fun time spent with family and friends! All three of our children are active in sports and we enjoy honoring their accomplishments.ReplyDelete
Way to go Momma! We need to push our kids out of their comfort zone once in a while to allow them to try new things. Although your Daughter didn't enjoy the entire experience, I think it was good thing to experience!ReplyDelete
I think it is great your daughter had this experience at least once. I think it is awesome you let them experience things and do not push them to do things they do not like doing more than once but it is good they try new things. Maybe by next year she will change her mind.ReplyDelete
Sounds like a great event! I used to attend all banquets when my son did sports in public schools. They don't have them at my son's private school.ReplyDelete
Sport's Banquets are always fun to attend! I'm glad your daughter had fun and I hope she gives track a try!!ReplyDelete
Sounds like a fun event. It's good that you still encourage them to try it even though they are not interested in a particular activity.ReplyDelete
It's great that your daughter got to attend the sports banquet this year since she didn't get to last year. Even though she didn't enjoy the dance she was making memories with friends.ReplyDelete
Everyone looks so cute and excited. I bet this was a memorable occasion as I know it would be for us.ReplyDelete
How nice! It's a great way to celebrate the hard work that these kids put into their teams. I'm sure your daughter will find another sport that she'd like to try.ReplyDelete
Looks like there was quite a bit to celebrate. I have always enjoyed my kids banquets like this. It is nice to be recognized after a season of hard work.ReplyDelete
This looks so neat. I bet my daughter would really enjoy this.ReplyDelete
I am willing to bet that my daughter would LOVE this. How cool does this look?ReplyDelete
The first of anything definitely needs to be documented. This is something you'll remember forever. Amaze!ReplyDelete
