I love to take pictures. I often takes hundreds of pictures a day. Which is why being my child means constantly having your picture taken.
I don’t love sports. At all. I love my kids, though, and my kids love sports. I spend a lot of time watching their sports. And being bored. She’s not bored. She’s intense. (Photos taken during the girls middle school basketball game, Walton vs. Wirt County, last week.)
She totally knows what’s going on, too. I don’t know what’s going on.
Like, when for whatever reason, they have one of the girls throw the ball in from the sideline, it’s always Morgan. See, here she is doing it again.
Why do they always have her do that? Is it so I can take her picture? At least she’s standing still. See what happens when I try to take her picture when she’s not standing still? I can’t do it.
It never works out. I’m not a real photographer.
I really like it when she sits down. Which she hardly ever does. She’s a starter and a very good athlete. Which is why she plays everything. I have to find some way to entertain myself. Because I’m bored and I don’t know what’s going on.
Don’t move, girl sitting next to Morgan! Look, now you’ve done it, you have no hands!
Now look how scared that girl is! She didn’t know the other school had ghosts on their team!
Morgan’s spotted me.
There’s no place to hide. She has to sit there. JUST LIKE I DO.
She ponders the great burden of being my child. The only child on the team whose mother takes pictures of her during THE ENTIRE GAME.
Do you SEE that look she’s giving me?!
Maybe she can hide behind her friend.
Now that is just plum ornery. She knows how I feel about her hair in her face.
Resigned at last. I’ve worn her out.
Okay, that was fun. Is basketball season over yet?
