I don't know what it is but there is just something about watching a scrappy little group of 8 and 9 year olds play ball that gets me excited!
I suppose it doesn't hurt that there is a certain big guy in our house who can be classified as a baller at the tender age of 9.
He loves this game and was completely in his element this morning having his buddies over to play in the shop.
Next weekend these four are participating for the second year in the Shada shootout tournament in town.
It's pretty obvious that the other three guys are 'ballers' as well, can you see those smiles and looks of pure determination on their faces in these photos?
They are tough competitors and I know they are going to have a blast competing next weekend!
Go Lightning, can't wait to cheer you on!
