The girls participated in their first-ever summer camp this week. They attended basketball camp at the high school where Hubby teaches, from 8:30 – 10:30, the first three days of this week.
They were the smallest ones there, but that didn’t stop their FUN. Daddy was there to watch everything, and I got the highlights.
On Monday, they had to dribble the length of the court and back. Hubby told me that B was the last one to finish, and as she did so, all the other kids were chanting her name. How cute!
On Tuesday, they had a pick-up game. Hubby told me that the bigger kids weren’t being very gracious with sharing the ball. When A finally got a turn, he said she took off…forgetting the dribbling…she RAN!
And after Day 2, my A told me, “Mommy, I had to reach up really high to give the big kids a high five.” HA!
The kiddos did a warm-up “shuffle”. The girls practiced SO hard to get it down…to the point that that’s how they wanted to walk on Tuesday night…everywhere they went.
On Wednesday, Baby A did the shuffle with the best of them. Hubby said that Baby B took her sweet, methodical time, the last one to finish, but she did not miss a step. Hee hee!
For the last 45 minutes or so on Wednesday, I came to see the girls in action. I got to see my A being incredibly serious as she was guarded by a 10-year old boy.
(She told me that morning, “Mommy, the pictures you take of me will be blurry, I’ll be running so fast.” She was right!)
|(I did not LITERALLY mean to take a blurry picture. Mommy Camera Fail #1,749.)|
And then, when her drill was over and she saw me, she RAN to me and LAUNCHED HERSELF into my arms.
And then I got to see my B doing a skills test. She was concentrating some kind of hard, alternating a very serious look with a huge smile.
And every night when the girls told me about their day, I had to smile at them calling the high school kiddos, “my coaches”.
