Scott was able to find a couple extra tickets to the IU game on Sunday which meant Cooper got his first college basketball experience.  To say he was excited may have been an understatement.

Little Cameron, oh how I love this child.  He didn't even get to go but he was just happy cause Cooper was happy.

It was a boys day for the trip.  In almost 7 years this was the furthest Cooper has been away from me, not gonna lie, I was a little nervous.

I had a cute date to take my mind off things.  He dressed himself for church and wore that tie all day long.

It's safe to say that Cooper's heart may belong in Bloomington now.

Not too shabby for one's first basketball game,

So thankful that IU pulled out a win.  Cooper would have been so disappointed.  Steve said Cooper told him he was still shaking after the game. IU led pretty much the whole game but almost let Michigan come back.  

See that banner in the middle?  Indiana is the last college basketball team to go undefeated and win the national championship.  It's why it's so important right now for Kentucky to lose a game :)

This is blurry cause it's from my tv, but look right in the middle for a man in a white shirt then look to his right for a little bitty head.. that's my baby!  He looks so tiny.

I would have loved to experience this with Cooper but I know it's important for him to have his boy time.  He had a blast.  So thankful for these memories that he is making.

On a different note, Michigan has a kid playing for the them named Austin Hatch.  If you get a moment look him up and read his story.  He survived two plane crashes.  Two!!  They were both piloted by his dad, the first killed his mom and sisters, the second, years late, killed his dad and step mom. This was just after his verbal commit to play at Michigan.  He ended up with a brain injury and was in a medically induced coma for several weeks.  He was able to rehab and play basketball game and Michigan honored the scholarship. Such an inspirational story.  Check it out.
