Ah yes, the season of basketball has come to an end. Matthew was not a towering giant in this sports of heights, but he did enjoy the games, the friends, and (most of all) the snacks that came at the conclusion of every game.
Matthew had a great season. His skills were improving and his shooting had gotten a lot better. But what stood out most was how Matthew loved to steal the ball.
Sometimes a little too much. But I guess at the first grade level, its better to focus on the fun they were all having.
Although there were a couple of times when parents got a little over zealous with their kids playing... Note To Self: Never scream at my kids while they are playing about mistakes they just made. The last thing I want is for my kids to have bad memories about these events and games which are supposed to be fun.
I am very proud of you, Matthew, and very proud of your father for letting you have fun. But remember,you only can steal on the game.
