Basketball

Leah has been playing basketball this year and it took the entire season before I remembered to bring the camera to snap a few pictures. The lighting was extremely poor in the gym, so these are a bit grainy (I had to bump up the ISO quite a bit and my camera body isn’t great at handling digital noise). Leah’s season was only five games long and she learned quite a bit over the span of those five games — of course, the bar was pretty low when she started. She became much more comfortable as the season went on.

Each game was preceded by a 20 minute much-needed practice.

Although she's left-handed, she shoots with her right hand. Yet it still went in!

Leah dribbles just about as well as her dad.

In other news, Austin is a monster. He found the zipper of his bean bag yesterday and proceeded to empty the contents all over the basement. After he did that, he came upstairs to show his daddy. Sigh.

The kid is a monster. But he's proud of it.

  1. Every one of those pictures is great! I’m glad Leah got the chance to play basketball. And that one of Austin is pretty priceless. Your “sigh” says it all.
