|that's a high basket, I don't care what anyone says!|
|lining up - how cute are they?|
|don't ask me what they were talking about - bet it wasn't about the game!|
|defense - I think!|
|she's really into it!|
|swish - just kidding - this was a pass :)|
|double-digits, baby! we won our last game!|
I know I lament about keeping our lives simple - but I do really enjoy watching our kids play sports! The more we get involved with other families in our district, the more thankful I am that we live where we do. We have enjoyed getting to know the boys that Josh has played soccer with since they were in third grade. Kate is on an all-girls soccer team in the fall and spring and enjoyed her time on her all-basketball girls team. Even though our school is the smallest in the county (with a not-quite winning record), we have really been blessed to have our kids interact in this way with their classmates.
Like any other proud mom, I just love seeing them enjoy themselves and learn new things. Of course, as a non-athlete myself, the wins/losses record is not forefront in my mind (I know my husband and sister-in-law are cringing right now). I simply love seeing my kids make friendships, have fun, and continue to mature in their abilities. I'm sure the intensity level changes in school sports as the kids get older, but for now, we're reveling in the fun part of it!
