Our school participates in the Association of Christian Schools International (ACSI) speech meet each year. Last year, Jackson wrote an original speech for the meet and I shared it with all of you. Cameron chose to write his own speech this time around and again, I want to share. It is definitely a proud moment to see your child get up in front of others and speak...especially their own thoughts. Enjoy...
Basketball can be fun for everyone. It is enjoyable because you can play with your friends and make new friends. You can even join a team and compete against others. When your team wins a lot of games you can go to tournaments and see how far you can make it.
In basketball, you need to be fast as you run down the court and make layups. You also need to move quickly on defense so you can stay in front of your man. Passing can get your team down the court faster and can get you closer to the goal. One good thing about going fast is that you have no time to focus on mistakes.
Basketball is a good way to share your faith with others. While you are practicing, you can share Christ with your teammates by being nice and respectful to the coaches. When someone falls down, you can pick them back up and offer encouraging words. At the end of the game, whether you win or lose, you need to have good sportsmanship as you reflect Jesus.
