Alexis has begun her first season of basketball. We have not really taught her anything about the game except that the ball goes through the hoop. Last Thursday she met her teammates and had her first practice, Saturday she had her first game. She was nervous and a little perturbed that the coach would expect her to play well after just one practice......she didn't know if she wanted to play a game yet. Thankfully she did-and did awesomely(Is that a word-it should be!) She is athletic that is for sure. She stole the ball, drove down the court and basically did a jump shot. It made this mama so proud. She didn't make any baskets, but she ran up and down the court, listening to her coach and following his instructions, it was just great. She had a big grin on her face and had so much fun. I love that she is loving this game-what a blast to watch!
