Mr. Richie (Blake's dad) was chosen to go on stage to assist with one "trick". He couldn't have chosen a better person - Richie cracks me up every time he's around!
This was such a funny part, as this Marine had to jump up and strike a pose and say "I have the tweezers".
The pastor of the church (not our home church, but a great church nonetheless) assist with one of the "tricks".
Some of the audience members caught mini basketballs that were thrown - Drew caught one and Craig caught one for Mikayla. Then these five lucky children (including Bryson and Blake) found numbers on their balls to get a special prize.
Drew poses with his award for participating in Upward this year. All of the children who participated in basketball or cheer leading received these wonderful tote bags. Drew can't wait to use his on a sleepover with Mimi and Poppi and Aunt Jennie! Drew had a wonderful time playing for Upward this year, and I'm sure we will be a part of this wonderful program again next year!
