end of basketball season!
Well, we did it. We made it through our first sport as a family. 🙂
This summer Eli played basketball through the YMCA. It was a summer league, and so a little more relaxed than the fall/spring sessions. I thought it would be an easier introduction into the world of kiddie sports. And, it was.
He was so excited to be able to participate! After the first practice/game, we realized that most of the kids had their own ball. So, that next week I took him to get one so he could practice dribbling at home. As I held up the regulation color ball, his 3-year-old eyes strayed to the more colorful version… and, of course, I let him have it. 🙂
He may not have made a shot (unassisted) the entire season, but he did learn a lot about how to listen to your coach, how to have fun, and how to do your best.
Next up: soccer. That one should be more interesting since it involves a practice during the week AND a game on the weekend. Not to mention that Rachel will be doing this one too.
Bring on the craziness!!!
