WW: Sports {Linky}

Isaak has been in basketball this whole year, and loves it! He usually takes the ball down the court.

Mica asked to play two sports: Soccer at the Y and Volleyball at school. He's never asked to play a ball sport. He was in t-ball when he was in preschool, and martial arts when he was in Kindergarten to about the beginning of 4th grade. Kind of late in the game, since he's in 5th grade. We're willing to let him try the sports.

Since I've never been a soccer mom, and Travis has never been a soccer dad we had no idea what to expect. We got him soccer shorts, then showed up, and all the boys had on basketball type shorts.

They both lost their games that week. Mica never did get to a practice due to rain and a communication mishap between the Y and the coach. Mica in particular was beat! He's a classic bookworm. 

I got him this outfit for Easter, so I gave it to him early. The shorts are a bit longer. Then I returned the $25 soccer shorts. 

We also wen to the boy's Leadership Camp, and played Dodgeball. It's pretty fun! We play parents against kids. There's only a handful of parents, but loads of kids! I always throw the ball too high, and someone catches it. I only got photos of Mica because Isaak was across the gym. 

Were you into sports? Are your kids, or grandkids into sports?

I did volleyball when I was in my teens. Mariah has never had a sporty bone in her body. Allison was pretty good at gymnastics from 3-11, then decided to take a break. She did track for 2 years, but decided not to resign up this spring. She wants to go back into gymnastics. It's quite expensive so I haven't signed her back up yet because I want to be sure that's what she really wants to do. We may just let her take a summer course to ease her back in.

Love that both of your boys want to be active, getting out there and playing on a team!

My daughter ran track and cross country in high school and then played rugby her first couple of years in college.

My son played baseball and now runs track at his JC.

Thanks for hosting and have a wonderful week.

That is so great that your boys are into sports. My boys were on the same basketball team this year. It was so much fun to watch the games.

So fun. Broxton loves playing basketball. Wish he would get into baseball again.

I didn't do sports outside of school, but my brother was into soccer. It's awesome that y'all agreed to let Mica try sports this year. Despite the fact that he's older, I've found from watching fifth-grade girls play softball that most of the time the kids just don't know what they are doing until around this age anyway. However, with boys, it may be different. I guess you'll let us know after he's been playing for a while. :)
