CEM had her first basketball game this weekend (seen below in this terrible motion shot). Never before have I thought that the children were more like each other. Like REM she was the tallest on the co-ed team. Above and beyond that she couldnt have been more like her sister in how she approached the game. She was so focused and had a fire in her eyes so intense to win.
Without one team practice, she played all of the plays that REM's coach has taught her over the course of the last year. She was the first kid at the other end of the court, didnt stay in the key too long, didnt double drible, she was always there for the pass or rebound (a particular REM strategy).
Best part is that she got the whistle called on her when she stole the ball and was headed down the court (apparently this league at this age that is not acceptable).Thank goodness for older sisters who teach life lessons every day while not even realizing it!
