My Little Davids Take on Goaliath

When we finished the house last spring, we had a concrete pad poured outside the garage. It was rather small and in our haste to complete the project we didn't pay close attention to the steady downhill incline of the driveway until we had a bit of a water issue.





We knew we needed to address the "puddles" that formed with each rain, but much more importantly we needed more room for the boys to have a basketball area. So we had the wonderful earth-moving man and his concrete pouring sidekick make a visit to our house.



Wah-lah...






Isn't it beautiful? Something is missing though. Yes, something is definitely missing!


Where we live, we have mighty Kansas winds. We also have three mighty boys. Often the three multiple to four, five, six or more boys. Girls, too! What's missing is a heavy-duty basketball goal. Our solution, the GOALIATH.




The GOALIATH means business. It's not for any meek, reserved, wishy-washy b-ball players.




My two oldest boys and my husband began to assemble this behemoth system.




I noticed that my 14-year-old was READING THE DIRECTIONS. Sniff sniff, I'm so proud!





Later I caught him teaching his father how to read the directions! Who knew the GOALIATH would be a miracle worker.






The hanging day came. People from miles around came to help. Well, ok, it was just our neighbor, Matt. They worked, sweated,... worked and sweated some more, until they accomplished the unbelievable, the GOALIATH was fully assembled.





See that box up there... it's a light.




Yup! We have 24-hour basketball playing capabilities, right here at our very own home!




Aaahhh, no more extra "puddles" and a great area for basketball playing. You should see Bailey, the dog, play. She was telling me all about it here, and I think she may be drafted.

Here are my boys making their NBA tryout tape...

Just think how comfortable you'll be in your old age....multiple sons in the NBA will be able to provide nicely for their parents. I do wish your family would learn a new song. The Wabash Cannonball would be a nice selection!
