Dear Little Nies,
When I was in 6th grade I decided that I liked to play basketball.
With five older brothers I watched a lot of hoops as a little girl,
and spent a lot of time in stinky gyms watching games.
So, I decided to try it myself and Umi signed me up to play on
a city league team. I also played guard on my
young women church team.
I played on my junior high team and when I was
a freshman I played on the sophomore team.
I even sat for a few JV games.
Then when I was a sophomore, I decided to ditch basketball
altogether to become a cheerleader.
But that's a different story for another blog entry.
A few days ago we went to the church gym
where I shot a few jumpers for old times sake.
I'm a little rusty, and my hands sure ain't
what they used to be, (neither is my bladder).
But I still have a nice jumper, if I do say so myself.
