Read to achieve

Last year, the VP at the boys school had a program at their school called "Read to achieve" and they have to log down the title, author and number of mins. they spent reading for 4-6 weeks I think.

The boys love to read and as a reward they were invited to be a part of the "read to achieve" at school and met Marcus Camby of the L.A Clippers. Even though it was raining he came and read books to the 100 kids and the Clippers Cheerleaders bust some moves.

After he read books, Marcus answered some questions from the kids. Like How tall he is, If he loves to play basketball, can he dunk the ball. Really cute questions. Then the VP gave the signal and said 5 more questions. Until on the last 4th question this boy asked him this question:

Boy: Have you played at the Marriott Center?
Marcus: Marriott Center....No...I believe I havent been there. Have you?
Boy: Yeah
Marcus: Did you play basketball at the Marriott Center?
Boy: No

It was sooo cute. I am so proud of J.T, he was confident to ask a question. The boys received clippers flags and pens, and a book to take home.

Well, last time J.T went to watch basketball game was when we went to UT for New Years and watched the BYU game at the Marriott Center. I guess we'll have to take them to the Staples Center to watch the Clippers or Lakers. :))
