Jonathan had his first basketball game on Wednesday. It was the first game of his season. It was his first game ever.
His age group is 5th and 6th graders.
Warming up before the game.
Sitting out during the first quarter.
Waiting to go in to play.
Final score 20-10. Jonathan's team lost by 10.
Game memorable moments:
Jonathan's determined, happy face at halftime when he came to get his water bottle. He was having a great time.
The unplanned break when one kid vomited. The players stood around, not sure how to react.
Jonathan said, "He had too much fruit to eat." I said, "Ew, is that what you saw?" He said, "No, that's what the coach said (after cleaning it up)."
I am proud of Jonathan. He played hard and had a good time. I am impressed with his effort and enthusiasm. It takes strength to start a sport when many of the other players have been playing for years.
