It's that time of year again. My most favorite kid sport ever....even though I really know nothing about it aside from the basics. Meaning the players try to throw the bouncy ball into the basket thingy.
Why is it my favorite sport then? Well, because it's fast and active. The parents get to stand (or sit) indoors in a warm gym. Every kid plays a lot...nobody is standing in the wings while the coaches all-star kid plays over and over again. And, the kids get a lot of exercise running up and down the court.
Turns out El Fuego's not so great experience in football served him well with some 'blocking' skills in basketball. That is until the referee bluntly told him "this isn't football kid!" Parental units got a good chuckle out of that one.
Our girls team are a little behind the eight ball as they are one practice short because they didn't have a coach. Mr. Hawthorne finally raised his hand and the team took off running. Two hours fr practice and they won their first game with a score of 20 to 10. Not too shabby.
I have to say, I do love this little team Miss O landed on. The group works really great together....
....and Miss O is happy.
