The Start of an Exciting Season

Both AC and B chose basketball as their winter activity this year. Luckily, this meant they are on the same team....same practice and game time. This is the first time they have played together in a group sport since they were 2 and played tee ball with the Lollipop League....that name alone is what posessed me to sign them up for an organized sport at 2.
Anyway, today was the first game and trooper T loaded everyone up, remembering snacks for the little girls and the camera to document the game since I wasn't able to go.


the super excited cheering section

I love the tomboy/ girly mix that makes up my AC. Case in point: after putting on her uniform this morning, she came flying in the room prentending to dribble and pivot around the room like she was owning the court (that's the best description I can come up with since my very limited basketball experience consisted of me shooting at the wrong goal and scoring for the other team, crying, and constantly checking the status my very high side ponytail) After showing off her moves she said, "Momma, I think when I shoot a goal, I'll jump up and hang from the basket!"
Within 5 minutes she was back in my room having spent some time accessorising the uniform with sweatbands and perhaps every piece of jewelry she could get her hands on. After looking in the mirror she said, "I really wish they would have ordered the sweatbands with the uniforms so it would look more fashionable."
And so my legacy continues, at least a little.

So cute! They look like they are having a blast--and those babies look like they want to jump out in the middle of it. :D
