April Notes 2020

An April Weekend

This weekend we had the pleasure of going to Joane’s Fabrics to buy some crafts, and we waited 58 minutes in line…

58 minutes

We get in…and we have the store to ourselves (practically). It was more dangerous waiting in line than going into the store.

March Notes 2020


Ava & Kaya w/Whidbey Island in the background.

With COVID-19 things have shut down quite a bit, pretty much all basketball has been cancelled/suspended. Thus the Powell family is spending a lot of time at home. Just two pictures for March.

February Notes 2020

The Emergence of Ava!

Ava starting five Feb 22 2020

Ava, #22, and the Meadowdale starting five (w/Fatou, Lilly, Kaisha, Soriah) vs. Snohomish in a loser out game. Ava had four points and played well.

Ava played varsity this year for Meadowdale’s Lady Mavs 3A team as a freshman, and struggled often during the season, and sometimes playing JV and Varsity. The Varsity qualified for Districts, but in their first game lost to Snohomish. They had to win three games in a row to advance in the loser-out bracket. The first of three games were against Everett, and when we arrived she was being announced as a starter.

This picture not only has Ava in action, but in the background has her Dad (me), Mom, sister Kaya, Grandpa, Grandma, and current and ex-coaches Riley Prince, Stanton Hightower, and Brian Leith!

They beat Everett, then Ferndale, and had a rematch against Snohomish, winning that and advancing to Regionals. Ava played well, with nine, zero, and four points in the three games, and four in Regionals against Hudson’s Bay.

And she remained in the lineup for the the last four games until being ousted by Hudson’s Bay.
