Basketball season has begun but this year we are trying something new. In an effort to support a local church, we decided to join their Upwards basketball program. So far we have been really pleased. Before the first game, the church hosted a big kick-off celebration. Each child's name was called out and he/she ran through this really cool tunnel onto the middle of the court. It was just like being at a Tigers game (well, almost). Ella really thought it was special and I was so proud of her.
These pictures are from the first game she played. Due to our ski trip, she missed the first two games. She was a defensive machine this past Saturday. She played her little heart out.
