This morning Josiah had a basketball tournament and they ended up coming in 2nd place. It is the heart’s desire for every parent to see their kids have more playing time, but we have to always remind ourselves that it is always about the team.
Since this is his first year playing organized basketball as a 5th grader, I know that he will gradually improve. After the tournament, we talked about ways in which he can improve and develop as a player. I am confident that he will get better because he has the sports sensibility and the athletic aptitude.
As a parent, sometimes it is hard not to get antsy in some of the close games. The worst part for me is that I always want to jump in the game and play… HAHA!
But it brings me great joy to see him playing the game because for the love of the game… which is the most important thing.
