Titus' First Basketball Game

For your viewing pleasure we uploaded some footage from Titus' first YMCA basketball game. It was yesterday at a local elementary school. Somethings you need to know before watching this....
*the entire time he kept asking if we could just go home and "do art."
*Titus is in BLUE and is #11.
*Titus has never seen a basketball game and at practice they each have their own ball so the concept of only having one ball was very hard for him to grasp.
*Titus is 3 and most of his teammates are 4. And he is the only one who has never been on a team before, this team played soccer in the fall together.
*He couldn't understand why people would take the ball away him every time he tried to do anything.
*Vernon and I were both VERY competitive and into sports as a child. Titus....not so much...yet.

That has to be one of the funniest things I've ever seen! I had so many emotions watching it, but mainly joy. I love that kid! The song made it even more fun.

Robin & I just finished watching the new "star" of the courts and haven't laughed so hard in awhile! That was amazing -- maybe he's more cut out to be the next crocodile hunter instead? ( I don't know though, it looked like he was about to break out in a creative dance for awhile!) We'll all see! - Sharon

I could not be laughing any harder right now. That is one of the greatest things I've ever seen. Titus seriously is the cutest boy ever and he has such a big personality that makes me smile. I can't wait to watch this with Heath later.

Stopped by to check in and loved this video. I think Sebastian is going to be the same way.
We've got neighbors with two little boys who are doing Upward Bound and they are always out there shooting hoops. They are three and four but they are so small that Sebastian, at 20 months, is about the same size. I know he's not as far along as they are developmentally but I sense a little of the 'lets take turns' attitude rather than the 'I'm gonna dunk on you' attitude in him. We'll look back on these days and remember how sweet they were!
Congratulations on your second!
