So I forgot to mention that it is basketball season and we are having our own little struggles with basketball this year. This is our first year playing at Mt. Crest and let's just say I am less than impressed and basically threw away $100. That's right you heard me it was $50 a kid for basketball. But I was all for it if they liked it and it was a good program. Boy was I let down. First off Colton's team didn't have a coach. THe first game came and we were told they had a coach, we get to the game and no coach and only 4 boys, that isn't enough to play. So a dad and myself decide to coach. We had another boy show up so we finally had 5 but it was sad. These are 3rd grade boys and most of them have never played basketball with rules. Colton has, but he was less than impressed. He is so grown up sometimes. He hasn't had a single practice and he did not want to go to his game this last Saturday and I can't say I blame him. Believe me that lady in charge is getting an earful from me. Now I come to Bowen. HE has been playing basketball since 3rd grade. He is good. In 4th grade he played on a competative team. He is tall and talented. I don't say this being his mom, but it is true. I put him in the Aggie basketball camp this summer to help him improve and get ready for the fall season. Well he is on a team that also had no coach, then a dad stepped up who does not know how to play basketball but thought "how hard can it be?" Well Bowen is teh only kid who has played before so the other boys cannot even pass teh ball correctly. So we spend the entire game watching them try to pass teh ball and it getting taken away. Poor Bowen is very discouraged but this is a good lesson is patience and helping others to learn and grow. It just frustrates me that I spent money on this. Here are some fuzzy pictures of Bowen.
So here is what we do for entertainment while at Bowen's games. Mt. Crest has these totally wierd hand rails and they are the perfect size for a 3 year old to climb in or for a 9 year old to get his butt stuck in. What we would do for entertainment if we didn't have these guys around?
