Basketball Game!!

All the girls in AeA uniforms. Stephanie warmed up with us before the game and Jessica her job one of the most important I told her... keeping Rebeca.
Today we (Atletas em Acao) played in an exhibition game in a new gym. WE WON! Even Stephanie got to put on a uniform and warm up with us. You see that we did not have very many players. One of the girls even got hurt and could not play the rest of the game. A girl from another city came and played with us to finish the game. The five of us played the whole game and won by 5 points. Since being pregnant with Rebeca I had not play much or even been able to get out to run much. These last two weeks Rogerio and I decided that I would go to practice with him to train with the girls team. We are going to play in a tounment in July. We all, four kids and baby, go three times a week and one of the kids looks after REbeca. All this sacrrfice is not really just to play basketball but motive number 1# is to have time with the girls to encourage them in their relationship with Jesus. It has been a great time with them. If my knees can take it and I can get into shape, I will continue to play with them.
