My average day a month before basketball season goes something like this:
Wake up feeling excited because I just scored 30 points in my dream, watch trailblazer highlights, get pumped up go outside and practice, think of things I need to do before the season starts, my friend gets home from school, calls me, we play basketball for a while, and then beg my mom to go to the boys and girls club so I can play basketball in the gym.
Jason and Naomi got a call tonight that they are adopting a GIRL tomorrow.
She is gonna be super athletic and I'm gonna teach her to be SUPER good at basketball.
She's gonna be MONEY from three point range too! In the description of her mom it says that she is very athletic and so is the dad(he's 6'2!).
The baby is 4 pounds 9 ounces and is 19 inches long. She is gonna be the coolest niece IN THE WORLD. I can't wait! She's gonna be MONEY from three point range too!
We invited Jason and Naomi over tonight and I played this song when they walked in:)
SO HAPPY FOR THEM!
We had a rad carnival yesterday and A LOT of people came out. Then we had a family that I invited out come and they seem really saved. I was a clown for the carnival. I didn't have to dress up or anything. :) You probably all have instagram so you saw me on it. I don't have any pictures tho.
I've done a lot of cool stuff this year and have more planned but this is the first 8 months of what I've done.
1. Me, Alek, Caleb, Jo and Mo at an Ice cream shop in McMinnville 2. Impact team to Newport 3. Disneyland! 4. 15ht Birthday we went to a baseball game 5. Can't remember 6. Can't remember 7. Josiah Tyler Caleb and Me at Jo's pool 8. My fam at the community pool 9. Baskin Robbins in Beaverton 10. Baskin Robbins in Corvallis
Hayden Patrick Rice was born into this world somewhere between my allusion stage and my so-delirious-i-felt-like-crying-for-some-reason stage.
Ya' see, my mom went into labor at 7:00 AM Saturday. And didn't have the baby till 5 something the next day.
Have you ever tried sleeping in a lobby while lame/stupid-funny reality TV is blaring at 4 in the morning? NO? I didn't think so. I finally drifted off at about 5... if you could call it drifting off. With my friend Drew Altringer's foot in my face the entire time, you couldn't really call it sleeping. More like sleating (sleeping/eating). And I know you all are wondering how I persevered and how I'm blogging with one hour of sleep in the past 27 hours, but that's just how much I care about you. MY FOLLOWERS. Yep, that was reality TV crap speaking through me, notice the total drama in my voice?
Anyway HP(my nickname for Hayden) is 6 pounds 12 ounces. Our big baby is just another Rice!
SIGH. He's still only 2 ounces heavier than me which means he will be just as good of a point guard if not better! Well enough about him and more about me. Er I mean. I think I'm gonna go sleep.
P.S. I posted about it first!!!!!!!!!!
P.P.S. Pictures will come later
We got done with a week of conference and were leaving on Saturday.
Tyler Caleb and I decided to stay back in Mcminnville with Mackenzie because they were having a reggae concert night. Before the concert a guy named Daniel Duran was teaching Kenzie how to do different angles with a camera and how to make videos look better. (their starting a business with Daniel's twin, David) We went to our friends the O'halloran's house to shoot a video so Kenzie could practice. Daniel made the video last night and sent it to us this morning. IT'S AWESOME!
Here's the link:) http://vimeo.com/64496909
Plus we got to stay the night with our best friends the Altringers:)
Easter morning we woke up and did an easter egg hunt. I don't have alot of pics but check my moms blog. Trust me, I look like a weirdo in EVERY ONE. Except for the one's with the flowers.
Here are some good ones. Of me.
Happy be-lated Easter.
P.S. Don't ever try to play basketball in church clothes.
Haven't posted in a while...
Life's going good tho. Besides the fact that my bball team is 2-7.
We suck stink. We have some good players but we don't have good chemistry and our guys are immature 8th graders. We got two technicals last game. Two technicals = we lost by 13.
I don't really care anymore. We can't make the playoffs and just because the team as a whole isn't very good that doesn't mean I'm not good...Right? (Readers, Jonathan is trying to convince himself that he could still make the freshman team next year so just go along with whatever he says --Jonathan)
We are going to Disneyland in two weeks so that will be fun.
We get to see our cousins and our friends from his church.
I'm super excited!
Well that's about it and I might post after disneyland but don't get your hopes up.
We lost last night 29-27.
We were tied 16-16 at half but just let it slip in the second half.
We play the absolute worst team in the league this friday tho.
They lost to the second worst team 33-5. So we should win. I'll post about that after the game.
Our team lost the first game of the season 45-39. We went to practice and ran for along time, then we practiced crashing the boards(rebounding). The next game(last night) we won 39-38. It wasn't actually as close as it sounded. They got lucky on almost ALL of their shots. So now we're 1-1 and we have another game on Tuesday.
That's all that's happening in my life.
The Super Bowl has been decided folks. And guess who's playing? The 49ers!
It's been over 15 years since we(the 9ers) went to the Super Bowl.
We are 5-0 in the Super Bowl. So all that crap about the
Dallas Cowgirls and the Seattle Seachickens being the next big thing since sliced bread was...
well about as exciting as sliced bread.
Anyhoot, The 9ers are playing the Ravens, and do you know why that's a big thing?
1. The 9ers coach Jim Harbaugh was the first to get sacked by
the Ravens middle-linebacker Ray Lewis(arguably the best middle-linebacker EVER)
2. The ravens and niners have arguably the two best defenses in the league.(The 49ers are obviously the best)
3. Jim Harbaugh is the coach of the niners, John Harbaugh is the coach of the Ravens.
They are brothers. A brother/brother coaching match in the Super Bowl has never been done. Ever.
Just to let you know the niners are going to win. Making that our SIXTH SB win. And I'll be alive to see it!
Three years ago I told my brothers that I could see us being good in 5-10 years. The next year we went to the NFC championship game. This year we're going to win the Super Bowl!
I predict a score of 28-14 niners pull of the win. Comment your predictions and if you get the score right you win ten bucks!
My b-ball season is starting in two weeks.
Our team is 1-0 in the preseason and have another scrimmage tomorrow night.
We get our Uni's on Saturday and team pics that day too. Not that any of you probably care but I
haven't blogged for a while and nothing else is happening exciting in my life...
Mom and dad are gone in Prescott for a conference. I MISS THEM!!!!
Mom if you read this we should Skype sometime tomorrow. EMAIL ME!!!!!!!!
Happy New Year Everyone!
As A Special Way To Kick Off The New Year
I'm Just Gonna Keep Writing With A Capitalization At The Start Of Everything...
ok nevermind that was getting boring.
1. Learn the Ukulele
2. Make a youtube channel for funny videos and get 250 subscribers so that Google will pay me to put ads on the side!
3. Force Ask all of my Followers on this blog to subscribe
4. Annoy Mackenzie more
5. Save up 100$ Then waste it all on Black Friday shopping (I doubt I'll be able to save it for that long but we'll see)
6. Try to annoy the little kids less(not because I want to, but I have to fit #4 in between all these other resolutions.)
7. Try to convince Kenzie to start paying ME rent or move out
8. Prove to all of the "me" wanna-Be's that just cause you stole my number doesn't mean you're actually me(prove that by challenging them in a game of basketball and completely working them.)
9. Run out of New Years resolutions to write on my blog so I can go ignore almost everything I just said.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
P.S Half the things Jonathan wrote today are not going to end up happening... P.P.S So don't hold any of this to him. P.P.P.S #8 is going to happen though. If the person he's talking about reads this blog and wants to take the challenge.
