Field Work Fridays: Shootin' Hoops
This week we planned a basketball lesson at a gym in a local park. Things changed a bit when we got there, however, because this is what we saw:
Apparently big portions of the roof blew off in last night's storms, leaving the gym wet and unusable. Fortunately, we were allowed to use another local gym, instead.
Since our planned teachers were unable to relocate, one of our moms stepped up and did a few drills with the kids.
These two were really getting into this!
The rest of the time, the kids practiced shooting at the extra low hoops ...
they chased some balls ...
and generally ran around and got lots of exercise.
This little guy was quite sweaty and sleepy by the time he was done playing! He napped well this afternoon, but most of all, he loved exploring his new basketball skills with his friends.
