Seahawk is on a basketball team. Our local parks & rec department provides team sports for all the kids in town (who want to play and pay the fee, of course) below high school. This is our first experience with it with our kids. I played basketball for two seasons about a million years ago – seriously, I wasn’t that much older when I played than Seahawk is now. Anyway, it’s been a very rewarding experience for the entire family. Seahawk is learning the essentials of the game as well as good teamwork. Both are good lessons for kids.
Last Saturday was his first game; that’s what the picture is from. There are only 7 kids on his team, so each one gets loads of playtime in the games.
Tomorrow he has official team pictures followed by Game Number 2. Do you have any fun weekend plans?
I’ve been trying to comment on your posts lately and I can’t!! I’m so glad Seahawk (and the whole fam) are enjoying this experience! My 7 year old is starting basketball after Christmas and is so excited that his dad will be coaching! Have a great season!
I’m glad you could finally leave a comment! I wish I knew why your regular email address quit working for my blog though :(.
That’s so cool that your Mr is gonna coach Mowgli’s basketball team! That would be the one thing that would make the whole experience even more rewarding :).
YAY! I think my comment worked! I tried a different email address that time.
