From Daddy: We made it! Better late than never!

Due to some stupidly organized event that caused horrible traffic congestion and closures throughout the city, it took us almost forty-five minutes to get out of San Francisco.
I had to run him into the gym forty minutes late. We quickly explained to Coach Pat that I thought it more rude not to show than to show up really late. Robert and I sat patiently while the kids played. I tried to lead Robert into applause when baskets were made. Robert participated in “Coach Says” and Coach Pat put him into the game late, though there was little game left.

We played around in the gym for the half-hour between classes, and then Robert was permitted to join the dribbling drills with the six-to-eight year-olds in the following class. Robert didn’t feel like staying, but I convinced him to participate and he held up quite well in focus and fundamentals with the older kids before we departed early.

Things didn’t go as planned, but he really had fun and I’m proud of how he conducted himself.
