2009 Basketball

This year Noah and Andrew played basketball.  Tim was the coach of Andrew's team and the assistant coach of Noah's team.  Everyone had a great time.  Noah is a great player and I was a little concerned about Andrew's ability.  The only sport Andrew has played before was soccer when he was three.  Memories still come back to haunt me about him laying in the middle of the field crying that he was tired and he didn't want to play anymore.  Or the image of him kicking the ball toward the goal and instead of stopping when he got to the end of the field he just kept on running.  Kind of like Forrest Gump.  Anyway I had some reservation about how this sport would go.  He proved me wrong.  He really didn't have the strength in his arms to get the ball up to the rim everytime but he was great at defense.  He thought the goal was to steal it anytime the other team had the ball.  Noah and Andrew both enjoyed themselves and improved through out the season.  Dad did an awesome job of coaching.  He is very patient.  This is a good attribute to have when you are coaching 5 year olds.  Well I guess this is a good quality to have anytime. 

Just turn your head sideways to look at this one.
