Basketball – and soccer but no pictures

Guess I just have not had the drive to post anything.  It has been a long January and February.  Both grandsons have been playing basketball and indoor soccer and the weather has been up and down! 

This was Zane’s first year to play basketball.  First graders are just frustrating to watch.  At least they are given lots of leeway as far as walking or double dribbling.  And certainly no jump shots.  01-12-13 Zane basketball 03 01-12-13 Zane basketball 10  The wrist band is to designate who they are supposed to guard.  Zane has played enough with the big boys that sometimes he had to be reminded of that.01-12-13 Zane basketball 28 Baskets are also lowered for the little ones.01-12-13 Zane basketball 32 Zane is a great dribbler.  01-12-13 Zane basketball 3701-26-13 Zane BB 0801-26-13 Zane BB 1101-26-13 Zane BB 12This ref is really really good with the little ones when she tells them the rules.01-26-13 Zane BB 1701-26-13 Zane BB 20Now the big boys – Zachary – are a whole new ballgame.  They still do not do jump shots at this age but my goodness the difference in play!  Wow.  I don’t even like basketball but I love watching them play.01-26-13 Zachary BB 03 And I have decided basketball is a very rough sport.  01-26-13 Zachary BB 0401-28-13 Zachary BB 03 01-28-13 Zachary BB 04 Zachary is a competent player, not great, not bad.  He is a great coach.  He always knows who needs to be where and where the ball is.01-28-13 Zachary BB 08 Got a little rough here.01-28-13 Zachary BB 1601-28-13 Zachary BB 17 Which resulted in two free throws.  If I remember, Zachary did get one of them.  To me free throws are the worst as far as stress.01-28-13 Zachary BB 2201-28-13 Zachary BB 24 And so ended basketball.  The boys were playing indoor soccer too and I have a couple of pictures of Zachary but not very good.  It is hard to take pictures from the balcony through the mesh net and hard from the floor behind the plexiglass due to glares.  But great fun to watch!  I think indoor soccer is much more fun than outdoor.  Just my feelings I am sure. 

I’ll be back.  I have lots of pictures of our blizzard and more of other activities.  Thanks for sticking around.
