Tyler is Trying Out for the Basketball Team...

Out of nowhere, Tyler decided to try out for his school basketball team. Now, I have never known of Tyler to ever play basketball, not even under the hoop in our driveway, so I was a little surprised. His Dad and I got everything together for him to try out (you need to attend a meeting and have a physical form filled out by your pediatrician).
Yesterday was his first night of try-outs and he felt pretty good about it. I was so relieved...I don't even know if he can dribble a ball. He's played tennis, hockey and soccer in the past but has never seemed to find his sport. Maybe this is it~
Tonight he has try-outs again, evidently there are several teams and everyone should make it. I so hope he makes it onto one of the teams. I am proud of him for stretching his limits and trying something new.

Good Luck Tyler!

I smiled when I read "I don't even know if he can dribble a ball.?"
LOL!
I felt the same way when B-man INSISTED on playing Basketball. Turns out, he really liked it. It was the ONE sport that he was excited about every game! Who knew?
..He's tired of football allready..LOL!

That is so amazing, what bravery that takes in my opinion- to just get out there and try something new!! How did he do? Have you heard yet?

Yay for Tyler. I love his decision to try a new sport and just go for it. He could teach us adults a thing or two. Good luck Tyler! I am sure he is going to do great.

Hugs,
