Carter's first Basketball game!

Carter started basketball this week. His first practice was monday night and his first game was tonight. I can't believe how funny it is to watch these kids play basketball for the first time. I am assistant coach on Carter's team and it is so fun to work with these kids and try to teach them how to play. They did really good tonight considering it is the first time these kids have ever played in an official game. I was really proud of Carter. He tried really hard and had some really good shots. I think that he learned that basketball is more than just making baskets. He can make shots all night long when he is over at the fire station with me at night, but tonight he figured out that he has to work on his dribbling, passing, working together with his team, and play defense. He was a little disapointed that he didn't make a basket tonight, but I told him that I was really proud of him and that he will make one next game. I think that he was a little overwhelmed by everything, but he told me that he had a lot of fun.
