Dribble and Shoot! Basketball 2011

The boys had a great time playing basketball this last year. This was Brock's first year and we weren't sure what to expect. He played soccer last year and really liked it (in fact he wants to play again) but he was always so hesitant to even touch the soccer ball. He would just run with the "herd" and really never showed much interest in wanting to get in and kick the ball. Of course he was barely 5 at the time and had never played or watched anyone play the sport before. But.....he did have A LOT of fun which is really all you can ask for. So therefore, we wondered if he would even want to touch the basketball. But.....he pleasantly surprised us! He not only had a ton of fun, but he worked really hard and enjoyed dribbling, passing, and shooting. We were so proud of him!
Cannon also enjoyed his first year of basketball here in Idaho. It really helped that he ended up on a team with 5 of his classmates, one of which has become one of his best buddies. Cannon really loves the game of basketball and we had a great time watching him play. Now onto the next sport! :-)
