Do You Remember?

Do you remember your first encounter with a grandchild’s sporting event? Did you sit in the stands or stand on the field and cringe as you watched the 5-year olds attempt to play a game? If it is basketball, they probably all are in a circle trying to pick up the ball. They will dribble one time and then stop and look over at their mom or dad to ask “what do I do now?” If it is soccer, one quick kid will be racing down the field and all the rest of the players will be chasing him/her. If it is T-ball, each player will be standing on or near a base daydreaming or kicking in the dirt. If the ball is hit, nine kids will run after it and wait until it stops rolling and then pick it up. Now, it is anyone’s guess what they will do with the ball. Most kids do not play football until they are a little older so this is more organized. I have done this, and I cringed just like all of you. But when the game is over, I am the first to meet my granddaughter and say “good job”. We all want to think that our own is going to be a great player, and we dream of the day we can watch them play their first real game and star in it. What is most important with these young kids is that they are being active and doing physcial things rather than watching TV or some electronic game. Also, they are socializing and making their first good friends. Who really cares how bad they are at this game right now?
