Have consumed our lives again. Emma’s basketball season started the beginning of December, and she’s been going strong ever since. I am amazed at the difference in her agility from last year to this year. She has changed and grown so much, that she seems more of a natural these days. She went from being one of the smallest girls on her team last year to being one of the taller girls – she’s grown about 6-8 inches in the last year, and she’s still growing!
She’s turning into a stealing machine, and her “mad skills” are shining through. Last weekend in Helix, she had a 16 point game, and again this week, she scored 8 against Pendleton. Its funny when she scores because every time she makes a basket, she either smiles or you can tell she is trying to hold back a smile, and her face turns a little pink.
She is exciting to watch, and the thrills never stop. Here are a few highlights from the season:
I love this picture of her with Ryan (Harley & Reagan’s cousin).
Their final game is on Valentine’s Day in Dufur, and while I’m ready for this very long season to be over, I’m also a little sad. This is the last year Emma will play Junior High Basketball – next year she moves up to the big leagues. I’m looking forward to it!
