I just put up a post about PARENTING IN 2010 on my blog if you are brave enough to venture over and jump in. :)
Basketball - Ethiopian Style
Sami-Hannah got to play in her first official organized basketball game yesterday. While she has the height and athleticism, she has gotten a very late start in organized sports. She is a little awkward but gives hints that she will be a real player in the future.
I look forward to working with her on agility drills and specific sports like basketball and softball.
She did much better on defense where her height
was a bonus and her lack of experience was a little less a factor.
The girls start true full court basketball here from day one as
opposed to five on each end (offense and defense).
They get a real workout.
I was across the gym taking photos. This old wooden gymn
had AWFUL AWFUL lighting. It took every trick I knew just to get
the quality you see on this post.
As you can see, Abby wasn't feeling very good.
Landis never misses a photo op. He actually
said "Dad take my picture" and posed for me.
Sami playing defense...
More defense... she is getting the hang of it pretty quickly.
