We were all super excited for Noah last Saturday---
it was his first basketball game of the season.
He little team of 6 and 7 year olds are called the Celtics.

I could feel his nervous energy when we arrived at the gym...
but as soon as he saw some of his teammates and friends warming up--
he quickly joined in and started to relax.

Baby girl was so precious as she waited for the game to start---she was all ready to
help cheer her big brother on during his first game.

She LOVES when her Daddy holds her and carries her around.

Oh my gosh...I was so nervous for him!
I just prayed my heart out that he would have a fun experience this first time out.

About halfway through the game...
the babes started to get a little restless.  

They were ready to run, crawl 
and play around on the court with their brother.

We just kept stuffing their little bellies with juice and popcorn to try
and keep them happy during the game. :-)
Thankfully, it worked.

These two pictures (above and below) say so much about his first b-ball game--
he never allowed himself to get frustrated--
instead he was typical Noah---such an optimist and had a smile on
his face the entire game.

His little team didn't win, but it didn't phase those little guys one bit.
They had a blast out there together playing the game.
A few of the boys were in his class last year---
so that has made this season so fun for our little guy. 

 When it was over---he came running over to us and we gave him
 the biggest hugs and told him how proud we were of him.

Whew!! My nervous heart finally began to settle down a bit after the game.
And I could tell Noah was excited to have his first game under his belt.  
His Daddy rewarded him with some candy and popcorn from the concession stand 
and then we loaded everyone up and headed to the casa.

  1. Good job, Noah! What a sweet boy. Looks like he's got a great jump shot in one of those pics. Basketball can be so fun, yet so hard when you have the little ones, too. I'm glad the first game went well.
