Ryan had her first basketball game. It totally reminded me of her first soccer game. Mayhem! She had no clue what to do in a game. In her practices they haven't really gone over game situation yet. They are just trying to learn how to shoot, pass and dribble! There were some boys on her team who were VERY good. Dribbling, and shooting layups! Ryan took one shot, and missed. She said she had a lot of fun and stayed on the court the whole time. She spent a lot of time fixing her hair clip and waving to Pa from the court. I am proud of her for getting out there, doing her best and having fun learning new things. Basketball was the sport I played the longest and was my best sport. She may or may not follow that path. Either way, I am so glad that we are able to expose her to so much and let her decide what she wants to pursue in the future. I am sure she will make a lot of progress this season.

She is the only Caucasian kid on her team.
