Basketball is fun. I love to watch these girls learn the game. I am a bit perplexed with the conundrum resulting from inate competition and being a woman of grace. This week after the game, Princess recalled that she and a girl from the other team do not like each other. After a bit of conversation, the reason was competition ... not that anyone has done anything wrong or hurtful ... Princess is just learning what good, healthy competition is. As she reasons with her relational nature, if you are at odds, there must be a relational issue and it must have to do with who you are and who I am. She still hasn't learned that you mix it up on the court and high-five the other team at the end of the game. She is great at defense and really gets into ball stealing. She's much better at offense this season, but defense is where she shines. I'm praying that our time in the Word and time on the court will bring many lessons that will bless her for the rest of her life. This picture is Princess on offense teamed up against another competitive girl on defense. Each game is filled with running and scoring. They score combined 70 - 90 points per 40 minute game. So fun.
