Basketball Star

You might assume that the biological child of parents who are 6'8" and 5'10" might be the basketball to whom I refer...but you'd be dead wrong. Perry played basketball all through high school and college and has high hopes that at least one of his children will enjoy the game.


As the weather has warmed up, Elise is the one who we find outside bouncing the basketball!


She's got the dribbling down...


And it always helps to play in a skirt with your hair hanging in your face (the one ponytail is her current favorite hairstyle and by the end of the day she ends with more hair hanging in her face than in the actual ponytail!)....

Whoops....mom caught me looking at the camera....dang it....

Here she is perfecting a "twist" dribble...

Time for a rest....but I WILL NOT LOOK AT MOM WITH HER CAMERA! :)


SIDENOTE: Look at her little bum on that ball...my bum would squish that ball flatter'n a pancake!

I am not going to mention how much bigger I am than that basketball (ahem).

I think Elise can do anything she sets her heart and mind to! Go Elise!
