Christopher's New Found Love for Basketball

An interesting thing has happened to my kids since we moved New Jersey. Sports happened. And by that I mean we are in a different part of the world when it comes to sports. People here take their sports and their diehard loyalty for their teams verry seriously. I have not experienced this level of sports enthusiasm since leaving my hometown of Boston (where it's all about the Pats, Bruins, Celts, and the Sox)... I have to admit, it's really fun to be living in a sports-oriented part of the country again (even though people here root for the wrong teams, HA!).
Christopher has made some nice friends at school who happen to be interested in basketball, among other team-oriented sports. They play every day at recess. He's been asking us to sign him up, and I think we will. When I was a kid, I played basketball and really loved it. Tonight after dinner, we went over to Chris' school, and played for about an hour. I had so much fun myself, I didn't want to leave. It's great exercise! The hoops at school are pretty tall, and somewhat beyond his capability (though I was pretty impressed that he managed to make several shots!). Tomorrow, we are heading over to Toys "R"Us to get a nice hoop for our driveway. Perfect for after school fun!
Here's a quick video that was intended to be a Vine, but the app crashed while I was trying to upload. I posted it to my YouTube channel instead.
