Yet another player in the house!

Since she was 4 days old Kendra has been attending  her sisters basketball games. That's a whole lot of hours of sitting in the bleachers! Finally, after 8 years of watching, this year she was able to get out on the hardwood herself! She started off the first game of her career in style by scoring her first basket about 10 seconds into her first game! When a bunch of 7 and 8 year olds are out on the court there's a lot of laughter and just genuine fun. It's been a lot of fun to go back to watching them at that level again in comparison to some of the heated competitive games you face at the older levels. 2nd grade basketball is a whole lot different than high school ball! It's amazing to see how far they come in just a few short years!
Kendra was pretty upset at first to learn that she was going to have to wear a pink uniform! She is just not a pink kind of girl and almost changed her mind about playing if she was going to have to go out there in pink! But she soon realized that pink was not so bad after all.  They all have matching hair bows, gym bags and even socks and whatever they may have lacked in skill those first few games on the court, they definitely made up for in style!!
Since she goes to school up in Paterson Kendra doesn't know very many kids in Prosser so she was kind of nervous about meeting all these new girls. Because she tends to be quite shy we thought it was even more important that she get to know some more kids from Prosser and she's been blessed to play with a pretty neat group of kids. It didn't take too long for her to start to feel comfortable and start having fun.
