Basketball Time!

Lillian had her very first basketball lesson this past weekend.  Nathaniel was very excited to get into the action during warm-up time.  We had to convince him to clear the court when class was in session, but he soon made a new friend to distract him from wanting to run onto the court.  The hoop was the full sized 10 foot model they use all the way up to the pros, so it was a bit challenging for some first time players to get the ball up there.  Lillian actually had a better time with the bigger ball than with the mini-ball in these pictures.  She seems to be catching on to the basics pretty fast.  The jury is still out on whether she actually thinks the whole thing is fun though.

Nathaniel Skates!

Nathaniel had his first opportunity to go ice skating this past weekend. Despite some early slipping and sliding on the ice he had a great time and eventually got the hang of staying upright while holding someone's hands. Even Lillian got in on the act helping Nathaniel. I think he's going to want to go again soon!
