Basketball Tournament again!!

Yes, there is another Basketball tournament for the Boys and Girls again. It is tomorrow and Thursday, and we will be leaving pretty early. This time Kara will play because she is also on the team now.
The days have been normal, which is doing school, plus having fun playing basketball. Plus going to our family groups on Tuesday nights. Plus going to church on Sunday. But there hasn't been a basketball tournament for a long time now.
There hasn't been much happening lately. We did have another basketball game here though. Lady Staff against the Girls again, and Men Staff against the Boys again. This time, though, the Girls won their game, and the Boys won their game. We had lots of fun, once again, watching the game, and playing at halftime and after it.
When we go to the tournament tomorrow, we will go to New Hope's Basketball court in the early morning and meet the Basketball teams, Boys and Girls, there. Then we will head out, them in the bus, us and others in our (Peterson's) car. We will have breakfast on the way, and should get there pretty early also.Then we will play, and come back home for the night. The next morning we will do the same thing, and once again come back home for the night.
On Friday morning we will head in to Kampala because my Dad is teaching IY(Investment Year). I will probably play with Joel Brown's little brother, Silas Brown, until IY is over, unless Joel comes back early. I don't remember where we are spending the night. Then on Saturday we will meet some friends who are leaving back to America on Sunday. We will spend time with them all day, spend the night in a Hotel with them, then see them off on Sunday.
 On Sunday we will meet one of our Ebenezer boys who is in school in Mukono. We will eat Lunch with him and then go shopping after he leaves. Then after we go shopping, we will come back here to New Hope. Hopefully these days will be fun.
Thank you all for your prayers. Please pray that the trip will go well, and the tournaments too. Keep praying for future stuff too. This Year is a busy one. Thank you all again for your prayers and support, we all appreciate it.

The Regular.

        We have gotten back on our regular schedule of our weeks. We started school again on February 27th. We are going to the Ebenezer family group every Tuesday night again, and we are helping them in their gardens almost every Saturday morning.
        Friday evening we had the Ebenezer family group over for a football game. We played from 2:00 to 4:00, and we had lots of fun. We also did a basketball game from 4:00 to about 6:00. We had fun doing that too. I had a sleepover at Toby Britton's house(see previous blogs) that night. The best part about that sleepover was that we stayed up until 1:00 A.M.!!!! We had fun the next morning also.
        On Sunday we went to Church, of course, and ate lunch after. Then in the afternoon, the lady staff(including my Mom) played basketball against the girl's team(including my sister). The lady staff won that game. Then after that the Stallions(boy's team) played basketball against the men staff(including my Dad). The men staff won that one. My family(the Petersons) had our family night that night also. We had lots of fun that weekend.
        Today I have finished school all but this blog. After I am finished I will wait for my Dad to get back from a meeting and then we will go play some Basketball. Last week we couldn't play together because my Dad was teaching the institute all week.
        Thank you all for your prayers. We appreciate them very much. Please keep praying for anything that is coming. Right now I am listening to some thunder that rumbles every few seconds. Hopefully it will rain soon. Our cistern is filling up, for that, we are grateful. Thank you all and please keep praying for us!
