Ethan & Ashlyn...learning to play basketball
We bought an adjustable goal for the kids at Christmas...well we actually bought it the day after Thanksgiving but gave it to them as an early Christmas present. Ashlyn of course could make baskets with the rim at 8 feet but Ethan struggled to get it up that high. A few weeks back he told us he made a basket but his first basket was witnessed on Valentine's Day. That same day, Gina raised the rim to 10 feet for a while and Ashlyn made it at that height for the first time. Yesterday Ethan called me at work to let me know he made 20 shots with the rim at 8 feet. Gina and Ashlyn stayed outside counting the number he made until he hit 20. Needless to say he was very excited. Of course I told Ashlyn her practice needed to be making 100 shots each day. I think the reaction was along the lines of that is too many.
