Basketball camp

After last week's five days of basketball camp (spending one night in Shelbyville in a classroom, and three nights in Cookeville in the grossest dorm room in existence!), and playing up to 8 games per day, they're back at it with a vengeance. Practice this morning for two hours, then four games tonight. As tired as H was when I picked her up on Friday, she spent hours this weekend working on her shot and didn't mind getting up today for practice. It's great that she has finally picked one sport that she really loves, instead of ten that she didn't mind doing. I just hope she gets to play this year, and that the coaching is more organized. Last year, the coach had three teams to keep track of and coach, and it was her first year as a coach. I think it took half the season for her to learn everyone's names! I did feel much better watching her coach from the sidelines while watching a couple of games last week. Maybe this year will go more smoothly with a year of experience under her belt!
