Basketball Recap

Gavin had another basketball game this past Saturday. It was by far the best one yet. Why? Well because Gavin scored his very first basket during a game. Way to go Gavin!

He scored the first basket of the game in the first quarter. It was only about 3 minutes into the game and Gavin had the ball. He was surrounded by the other team and was looking for one of his own teammates to pass to. No one was unguarded. When I saw him raise the ball into the air to take a shot I thought " Oh, no, Gavin, your way too far away from the basket!"

But, he made it! Everyone cheered ! It took all of my self control not to run out into the middle of the court and hoist him up onto my shoulders. I was so proud!!
