Basketball Game

Yep. I said it. A basketball game.

I was in the Teacher vs. Student Basketball game yesterday. It is a game to get the kids and teachers more involved with each other. It is a big hit every year because we have some young male teachers who can dunk and do some crazy stuff. Well, I can't do any of that, but I do now how to dribble a ball and make a basket. I sign up for it every year because I think it's important for my kiddos to see me in a setting outside of the classroom.

There were only six women who signed up to play, so we had to take turns. Three men and two women per quarter. Our quarters were 5 minutes long and we played as many as we could fit in the time before school was out.

I was so proud of myself! I didn't make any baskets for my team.....but I was running up and down the court, fighting over balls with the other players, and reaching up for rebounds! I didn't have to sit down once during my time to play. I made it through all 5 minutes, three times! By the end of the game my shins were killing me, but my kiddos were so proud of me!!

I am proud of myself=)

Confession: I can't kick the sunflower seed habit=(

Cheer: I had Subway yesterday for lunch instead of giving in to the snack bar or pizza at school!!
