[personal|child] Quick updatery, and basketball

No Sunspin yesterday. the_child had her first middle school league basketball game, forty minutes away from here. ZOMG, it was riveting. (Who knew?)

The two teams ended the fourth quarter tied. They played a short overtime quarter, each scored four points, and ended that tied. the_child was fast, agile and smart, making at least three baskets on a stolen ball and a swift, full court sprint. She also went out twice with injuries, thankfully nothing too serious, but seeing her crying in pain on the floor was awful. Seeing her get up and play again afterward was inspiring.

After that, I had dinner with a dear friend. I'm off to Seattle this afternoon. See some, all or none of you around the joint.

the_child, with the ball.

As usual, more at the Flickr set.
