It wasn't that long ago that Elijah started playing basketball and Gabe had to tag along to every game.
Now, after years of waiting (not so patiently), it's finally his turn.
Saturday was Gabe's very first basketball game. It was quite the family affair, with Joe coaching, Elijah refereeing and Isabel and me cheering.
Although he didn't get any slam dunks (much to his chagrin), he did score four points and did an amazing job at both offense and defense. I had this image of both kindergarten teams just standing there, not knowing what to do, but we were all pleasantly surprised at how well they actually played the game. It was adorable!
I wish I had a video of Gabe jumping up and down, guarding his "man" (who was sometimes a girl), calling out, "I'm open, pass it to me!". The lighting in the gym is not the best, so these pics will just have to do. If you ever need to put a smile on your face, though, I strongly suggest watching a kindergarten basketball game :)
