Hoops

Torturing the dog for Helen...

This morning started bright and early with Mai's Soccer Jamboree. She had a blast!
We came home for a little break and then headed down to the school for our Challenge for today - Hoops! The kids used the kid "hoop" and I played in the big girl area.
I got a great workout. I read an interview with an NBA star recently (can't remember who, tho) and they talked about shooting from a certain spot and when he hit 10 (or 20?) in a row, he moved back to a different spot and on and on until he completed the whole thing with no misses. When he missed one he had to go back to the very start, so I imagine he spent a LOT of time working that net! I tried this for a while using some marks that were down on the floor. Jack made sure I didn't cross the line.

I also would just run from one basket to the next - shooting from far away, rebounding and then shooting again close up before running to the next basket. Finally I got tired and just stood in one spot while making the kids rebound for me :-)
I could shoot hoops every day! Love it!

You still can't see the video? Do you see it and it won't play or is there just nothing there? Can you see the video from my Falls Creek Falls post up higher?

OK, it's there now and HILLARIOUS! She's so relaxed compared to Shelby and the "walk" word!!! what a riot!!! Aren't they just a blast...there's always so much to say when you're a husky! Blair loved this video, by the way...very curious about how old Mai is and wondering if we could get our dogs together!!! <3

She was a little subdued that day. Her big thing is bouncing. She bounces around at the door like Tigger. It's FUNNY!
Too cute about Blair!!!!
