The Best Moments of Kid’s Sports

When watching kids play sports, the best moments for a grandparent don’t necessarily match what parents are there to see. Don’t get me wrong, my heart sped up when Emma caught the ball and looked up with the most incredulous expression on her face. But the photos Grandma wants to capture are more in the category of joy-in-the-moment rather than sports hall of fame.

I may be biased but I think these girls were born to wear sport’s gear Smile 

As Michael Jordon says – Just play. Have fun. Enjoy the game.

    I loved this post – I think as parents we are all focused on seeing the kids succeed, score, win. Sometimes just watching the kids do their thing when no one is looking is just as good!

  2. Super photos of your granddaughters having fun. 🙂

  3. The perks of being a grandparent! These are great photos (especially the last two). My niece is 16 and such a city girl. When I ask her about sports or hiking or just being out in the woods she wrinkles her nose and rolls her eyes. Your granddaughter’s look great in their sports gear!

  4. Love these pics of the kids, Fran. Truly, joy in the moment.

    • Kids have so much to teach us about that ability to live in the moment and wrestle every ounce of experience, emotion and joy (or whatever else is present) from what is right here and now. I so enjoyed capturing these moments.

    Love seeing young ones active and, most importantly, enjoying their sport. At this age they are eager and able to improve and to delight in their new-found skills. We’ve had hours of fun with the speed ladder alone which encourages quick feet and quick minds. Not sure about that big glove thing though 🙂

I would really love to hear what you think about this post . . .
