He Shoots, He Scores!!!

This is Garrett's second year to play basketball. He never really cared about it before so we did not push him (even though we love basketball). Last year he asked to play, so we signed him up. He didn't really get it though. He loves to play "pig" in the driveway, but games were more funny than him actually playing basketball. This year he has really improved so much!! He works with a coach a couple of nights a week that really just works on fundamentals (which is what he needs) and he has learned so much!!! I was worried because we were going for MG and Garrett just kind of started working with the boys his age on his own. The other boys can dribble and shoot and rebound so I thought Garrett would be intimidated, but he just jumped right in there and gives it his best. He doesn't complain that they are better than him, he just tries to do his best. I just cannot describe how much Garrett has learned so far this year! Anyway, the video shows Garrett playing defense, stealing the ball, dribbling in a game, and scoring his first 2 points in a game! We are so proud of him! He has made so much progress in his skill level, but his attitude and effort even though the other boys are so much better than he is just makes my heart happy!
