Banks Tournament Champions

May 19th, 2010 Posted in Fun Photos - Sports, Joyful Moments, Sports | no comment »

Joe’s Sherwood Scorpions baseball team won first place this weekend at the Banks Junior National Tournament.  The boys played very well and deserved the top prize.

Joe made the difficult decision to only play a portion of the championship game so that he could make it back to Newberg for an important soccer tryout. He played an amazing 4 innings that helped lead the team to victory. Hits, slides home, awesome bunts, RBI’s, double-plays…Joe did it all this weekend.  Then, he proceeded to get to Newberg and hustle his way onto the U12 Classic Team. It was a competitive tryout this year, and Joe showed he has what it takes.

Great weekend, Joe! I’m very proud of you.

Baseball Photo Season

Bachelor Sledding

Feb 1st, 2010 Posted in Fun Photos - Sports, Fun Things to Do | no comment »

Free and safe sledding locations are often hard to find. We’re not fans of the crazy busy tubing sites where you are required to rent their equipment. So, on Mt. Hood we go to White River. It’s fantastic. Lots of space to spread out and you can use whatever you choose to make your way down the hill.  We’ve been going their for years.

Last weekend we ventured to new territory at Mt. Bachelor.  The Wanoga Sno-park was an excellent, designated tubing and sledding hill developed by the community and the forest service. It had some super fast, sweet sledding. The kids loved it.

Some words of caution: helmets are a necessity even on safe sledding hills like White River and Wanoga. Accidents happen. Kids aren’t always looking out for each other and snow is not as soft as it looks!

A lot of getting good indoor sport shots has to do with setting up the camera. I just shared my Digital SLR secrets in an article on eHow. How to Take Youth Basketball Photos |

Basketball Season Begins

Dec 12th, 2009 Posted in Fun Photos - Sports, Fun Things to Do, Sports | no comment »

Joe and Ben kicked off  their league basketball season today despite the threat of freezing rain and snow…can we fire those meteorologists already?!  Anyways, both boys gave a good show for their first games. Unfortunately, we came out on the losing side at the end. Oh well, we’ll get ’em next week 🙂

And, with a new sport season comes a new photo op. I’ll be taking the team photos as usual…I’ll have to say I’m getting pretty good at the allusive basketball photo. Take a look at what I got from  Joe’s game

Sam’s Cobras Finish Fun Season

Nov 7th, 2009 Posted in Fun Photos - Sports | no comment »

What a fabulous soccer season. We had a lot of good weather, excellent coaches (thanks Brian and Chuck) and an incredible group of boys for the Sherwood Cobras U9 team. They were so fun to watch. The other teams out-sized us greatly, but our kids played ’em tough. The mighty cobras showed those other teams what you can do with good passing, spacing and skill. And they had tons of fun!  I took oodles of photos of these guys, of course, throughout the season and put together a photo book to add to their memories of the season.

Sam got his shot to be pitcher last night. Still can’t believe they are having 1st graders pitch! He did great. I posted a whole new crop of pictures on my photo website. You just gotta love the intense expressions on their faces while pitching.  Go take a look 🙂

Joe's Basketball Team Pics

Mar 5th, 2009 Posted in Fun Photos - Sports | no comment »

I’ve already gushed about my camera, so I’ll just share some of the fun shots I got of Joe’s basketball season. The pic of Joe with the big grin was taken right after he took a shot that got stuck between the rim and the backboard.  When the referee popped the ball out, the ball went straight up and  back down through the net.  Everyone got a kick out of that…especially Joe 🙂
