I’ve taken on a new venture recently, I am now a 1st and 2nd grade boys basketball coach. It was very last minute and we stuck with a Friday night practice time, so that kind of stinks.

We had our first practice last Friday night and our first game the next day. It was a blowout and not in a good way. I believe we lost 6-30 something. There was a time where I wasn’t sure we were going to get any points and many of the boys on the team were not used to losing, let alone that badly and it was hard for them to take. I think it’s good to know how to lose, so I guess it could be a good lesson, but it was brutal.

I’m hopeful that with some more practice and games under both my and their belts, things will get better. Or maybe I’ll have to retire from my basketball coaching duties and just be a mom in the stands.

Here are your flakes.
