Get your game face on!
Now I ask you - would this face scare you if you were the opponent in a game of hoops?
Sunday we went to an IU women's basketball game. It was Kenzie's first experience at a live sports event, and she was enthralled. The Lady Hoosiers were pretty darn good - they won against Illinois, and they really gave us a show! And she got to see what the cheerleaders do at a game.
I kept pointing out the Asian women who were involved - Kim Roberson, #35 on IU's team - was one person I pointed out to Kenzie so she could see a positive role model. Also, I saw a couple of Asian girls in the cheerleaders, to which I made sure she saw that as well. When I asked her if she wanted to do cheerleading when she got older, she shook her head no. I think she'd rather be shooting hoops. I hate to dissapoint her - so I didn't say anything - but I doubt she's going to get tall enough to be able to play on a team. But I'm sure she'll figure that one out on her own sooner or later - so I don't have to say anything....
All she can talk about now is going back to the next game (which will have to be a Sunday game - the weekday games would keep her up too late).
