Rafe's First Basketball Game

Today was Rafe's first church basketball game and it was quite comical. Rafe's team consists of mostly first time players and today they played what seemed like the Chicago Bulls. However, Rafe played the ENTIRE game and had a great time. This is such a change from where he was at the beginning of the soccer season. I was a little worried about two things going in to the game. I did not know what to expect when we walked into a gym full of screaming fans. And, I did not know how he would react to Daddy not being there (unfortunately Cory had to work today) He did not even seem to notice. He walked right in, grabbed his jersey and did exactly what his coaches told him to do. Rafe was quite funny during the game. He dribbled the ball to the wrong goal, ran while dribbling and then tripped and slid, and even got into a wrestling match with his own teammate, Riley. Rafe's only disappointment was that there was no tunnel to run through like his soccer games! He did get his snack, though.

Rafe, I am so proud of you for going out there and playing. I can't wait until next week!

Pregame warm-ups

Double trouble!

Where is the tunnel?
