Lil Bit has been participating in after-school Kid’s Poetry Football at her school. Today, they held their annual event. I was skeptical at first, but was pleasantly surprised that I enjoyed myself. The program was founded by Clement Mallory. It’s basketball with a play on words and poetry.
The events of the day included basketball, of course, word rhyming, word creation, fitness, collage creation and face painting. The adults got involved too. However, glamma was dressed too cute, and besides, I was the photographer, so I got a pass. Papa, on the other hand, was not so lucky. He participated like a trooper, but soon remembered that he’s nearly 55.
If you are in the area, and your child likes sports, I really recommend this program. The program has sponsored events throughout the year and even has a back-to-school drive for the kiddos.
