Basketball for Little Ones.

Do you have a YMCA in your area? Or a Parks & Recreation Dept? If so ... you really should get your kiddos/grandkids/nieces or nephews into the basketball program. Not only is it good for them ... but it is SO good for a daily dose of laughter.

These kids are so totally adorable ... trying to hold on to the balls ... learning to dribble ... asking for drink breaks every 10 minutes ... and don't get me started on the passing and free throws. Hilarious! ( I mean, Healthy!).

Isaac is having a wonderful time in this class. It meets once a week ... yet he has also taken to practicing at open gym days ... he so enjoys this sport. And he is even making baskets! Daddy has always not-so-secretly hoped that Isaac would enjoy playing football. But as for this Mama, I am openly hoping he sticks to Basketball. At its best, it is a "gentleman's sport" ... without the face punching of hockey and the full body tackles of football. Either way ... he is loving this ... and he is getting active during the coldest months of winter. Win-win.

Oh yeah ... and Halis and I are getting our laughs in ... win-win-win.

What are your kids doing this winter?
