|Slight height difference between Ben and the basket…|
Ben gave the ball a good heave to get it up there, but it didn’t quite make it. I thought about holding him up to dunk, but then realized I’m not that tall either. Fortunately the school has a couple of smaller hoops as well as the full size ones.
I think Ben still needs a couple of inches to really get into the game. He had a lot of fun throwing the ball and chasing it around. I have to say I love this age Ben is at. He clapped for me any time I made a basket. He really knows how to make his mom feel good about her athletic abilities (especially with the belly right now!).
|He’s still so tiny compared to the hoop!|
Ben had fun chasing the ball around. I had fun pretending to be an awesome basketball star. (I mean, how fun is it to have a short hoop? I feel like a rock star when I play) I hope Ben gets enjoyment out of sports when he is older. He doesn’t have to be the best or super competitive, but the joy of the game is something I know Pat and I hope to pass on. Of course if he doesn’t that is fine too. Until then I am going to enjoy letting him think I have skills well beyond what I actually do. 😉
