This was an exciting year of Upward Basketball. This was Hannah's 4th year playing and Emily's 1st. My dear hubby coached both of the girls teams, while I was the "administrator" of their teams. Our Fridays and Saturdays were filled with games. It was exciting to see some kids learn the game of basketball and hopefully learn a little more about Jesus.
Emily was in the Kindergarten group with boys and girls. I just have one word for you "hearding cats". Everyone knows how bad dear hubby is with names. On his team we had 9 players with 2 Zacharys and 2 Nicholas'. You don't need to do that to him. I was sad for Emily though. She could make baskets during practice, but during the game she didn't make any. I don't think it bothered her. Oh well.
Hannah had a great year. She made baskets in most of her games, played great defense and offense, and was very concerned about all of her teammates making baskets. She would always ask her dad who needed to get shots and was willing to bring the ball down and pass it off to her teammates. I told dear hubby if they had the white star award for the season I think she would deserve it. She was always encouraging her team and handing out high 5's. She is looking forward to next year, because they get to steal the ball and keep score. It is exciting to see her improve each year.
We are excited to have our weekends back, but we will be excited when the next season rolls around. Enjoy the videos of the girls playing.
