Pursuing Passions

What I love about being a mom is watching my kids grow into their unique selves. When they were really small, I loved to match them all and they all played tball together and everything was sort of done in a group. Well, they are at the ages now where they are all branching off into their unique interests. Wyatt became interested in basketball from watching Highschool Musical 1 and 2 and this past summer his passion became so intense. He practices daily as much as time will allow. We searched out basketball teams in our area and we signed him up back in November for the soonest available team which was January. He started the 9th and I can't say enough how much it just welled my heart with joy to watch him playing on his team and just enjoying himself. All the kids really enjoyed seeing Wyatt so excited and happy. It was infectious. He was so caught up in the moment and so happy, undistracted and if you know Wyatt, you know that he is so easily distracted, but because this is such a passion for him, he just went for it. We have had so much fun getting him basketballs, arm and head sweatbands, basketball shoes and shorts and just watching him flourish.
