Basketball Season

Basketball season opened for my Big Kid this past Saturday and I bid my open weekends adieu until softball season ends this summer...

My eldest daughter is tiny, but scrappy.  She will work harder than any player if it means she will out play them...I envy her athletic appetite.  Basketball hasn't typically been her sport (in my opinion). Last season was her first year playing and it was just okay. She had a tendency to "butterfly chase" sometimes, so I thought it was just a matter of time before she got bored and we would move on.

This year I saw a whole new player. She had 12 points and 4 steals. Where did that come from?! I was stunned.  It certainly wasn't what I sat down in the bleachers to see that morning.  We were so proud of her and it ended up being really fun.   The best part is that SHE looked so happy and alive on the court.  As much as I complain about how time consuming sports are, there are so many worse things she could choose to do. 

Happy Monday everyone!
