Brevin's First Basketball Game

Brevin had his very first basketball game last week. This highly anticipated event did not fall short. It was pretty stinking hilarious. Of course every night of his life since he could walk Brevin and his Dad have played basketball games in the basement. He knows all the rules, he knows all the moves, and it was time to put his skills to work. What happened? He was scared out of his mind. He was the only kindergartner playing with first and second graders and everyone knows that he quite possibly could be the shyest child that ever lived. Thankfully Bryson was his coach and slowly but surely he started playing like he knows how. I would yell, "Brevin, find your man!." and he would look at me with huge eyes and mouth, "I AM!" .

I had to laugh that he was the only kid who's feet dangled while sitting on the bench. Not to worry, though, those feet were sporting Jordan's, yep, a six year old wearing Jordan's. I didn't think it was really that necessary and tried to coax all sorts of other shoes as options, but I wasn't winning this battle...not with Brevin or Bryson.

Brevin is a TOTAL rule follower, and each kid was given an armband that corresponds to a player on the other team that they are supposed to guard. He was on those kids like glue whether it meant paying attention to the rest of the game or not. And let me tell you...he was so ticked that everyone else wasn't doing the same. Totally disgusted he said, "Did you see when I shot, there were three guys on me!"

Yep I laughed, hysterically, the entire time and every time Brevin asks when his next game is (which is at least 3 times a day) I get just as excited as him.

Great pictures - who cares if those adorable legs aren't touching the ground yet - with jordans and genetics he is still going to be the fastest kid out there!
