Amara's favorite thing about playing basketball was learning to guard. Once she figured out how to guard, she loved doing it and took every opportunity she was presented to throw her hands up in front of her opponent's vision. It was probably my favorite thing to watch her do, too. It was especially entertaining to see her and her opponent with their arms held high, staring down each other, mid-court, neither of them with the ball, but both of them intent on guarding the other. Steve was amused by the amount of "face passes" that occured. Almost every game someone got passed to in the face at point blank range. No worries, no one was injured.
I had my phone camera that I was learning to use, so I have a few short, yet good videos of her playing (sorry they're a little blurry). These were taken at her last 2 games. Enjoy!
