PeeWee Basketball

This is the story of my youngest son, Alien. Today was his first basketball game EVER. He was pretty nervous and was worried that he wouldn’t know what to do when he got out there but he actually surprised me. Here he is getting to the school gym and making sure his shoes were tight. It’s all about the shoes ya know.

Watching the girls game was quite exciting and they did very well. It was amazing to watch these little girls running around the court and they quite handily won their game. They will start shooting up in size soon but for right now, most of them are still the same size as the boys.

Of course I mentioned that this was (blog fodder) photo documentation of my boys…like I always do. For some reason Magnet thinks he wants to start his own blog also. No no no…not the puppy dog face. I can resist it. I can. I can. Well, maybe I’ll let him.

Alien got some court time and actually had the ball in his hands TWICE during the game. Of course I was bouncing in my seat and didn’t think to get a photo of him at that moment.

We’ll work on trying to break free from defenders later on.

A great time was had by all and then reality set in when we got home and I chased them both out of the house. Either stay out and play or stay in and do chores. I love the peace and quiet that always brings!

Peace out and bunny ears to you all!

I knew I would forget his game, darn it.

I had your sister's girls over from about 1 until Dad came and got them about 7. Rachel came at one and then Kaitlyn came over about 2:30. They just played games on the computer and played with toys.

Maybe I can make the next game. I'll try and remember.

I'm going to use that line about chores or play, thanks.

Aren't they great fun to watch at that age? I actually remember that age, hard as it is to believe. We always told the kids if they didn't do sports, then they had to work. Wisely, they chose sports. I went to at least a gazillion basketball games in smelly gyms (a perk?) I think not.

Tell Alien congratulations! from me. I think he may be a *player*.

I'd love to see Alien play basketball. And Magnet's puppy dog face, yeah, I'd be a sucker for that. He's a cutie pie. Well, both of them are.
