Macy was so excited this year about playing Upward basketball... and even more excited about that basketball uniform! Macy's always loved to shoot hoops at home, but she had never played the game before, so there was a bit of a learning curve at first. She has a pretty good natural ability for most sports, but we aren't a very competitive family. Sports have never really been our thing, I guess you'd say. And at the first game, I was a little surprised at how little she knew about the rules of the game.... definitely our fault!!
But I was even more surprised the next week, and then the next, at how much she improved! Last week she was running up and down that court like she'd been doing this for years. She even scored 10 baskets! Go Macy!
I love watching her learn, and love even more the confidence she has in her ability now. I wish the season were longer.... she's going to be so sad when it's over. But until then, we'll keep cheering you on, little girl. Mommy and Daddy are so proud of you!
