A year ago Preston received a basketball hoop for his birthday. Initially he didn't play with it very much, but this fall he really started to enjoy it. He goes out and throws baskets by himself, and loves to play "horse" with friends. This winter we signed him up for basketball. He loves it, and has really liked playing it the past couple of months.
We signed him up for the Upward league, which is a Christian run program. They play every Saturday morning for one hour, practicing for 20 minutes, then getting introduced and playing four six minute periods with a short Bible message in the middle by the minister at the church they play at each week. It is a well run program. Following each game, we go into a little room where the boys all receive a snack, and then an iron-on star for whatever they excelled at that game (offense, defense, sportsmanship, Christ-like behavior, etc.) decided upon by his coach.
Sadly it is coming to an end in a couple of weeks, but just in time for Spring baseball to begin. These are pictures of Preston at his most recent game.
