Avalanche played their last game tonight against the Tazers. It was a match to determine sole possession of 2nd place in the league. Jacek played a great game. He tied the score 17-17 at the end of half-time. Unfortunately, he missed 5 out of 6 free throws and he had four fouls at the end of the game. But he played tough the entire game. It was a tight game the entire time. Back and forth. But in the end, we lost by 3 points. Heart-breaking. It was still fun to watch and very exciting.
Best part of the evening, though, was coming home. We started talking about the months of the year. Jacek is so funny because he's 13 years old and doesn't know the order of the months very well. He started naming them and messed up halfway through. I said to Cory, "I failed as his preschool teacher because he doesn't know his months of the year." Half-joking, I said, "Geez Jace, your five year old brother knows the months of the year better than you." And he does. Keaton rattles off the months of the year perfectly. Not once; not twice; but three or four times. We are laughing so hard by this point. Jacek tried again. He still messes up. Finally, after little brother coaches older brother, Jacek says them perfectly. Hysterical!
