Oklahoma Basketball Tournament

We knew that Seth played basketball for his school in China, but we have since found out they did not did not practice.  Academics was much more important so they just played the game.  He practiced with his team four days a week and improved so much.  One of the coaches who used to play in college even wants to work with him over the summer because he saw something in him.  Of course if you ask him, he says he is not good because he misses sometimes.  He thinks he needs to be perfect in everything he does and there is no room for mistakes.  If he does not get a perfect score on his school work, he says he failed.  It is going to take some time to adjust his thinking.  

The following photos are from the Oklahoma tournament we went to this past weekend.  He hung out with his friends on the team and ate lots of different food that he was not used to.  He even went swimming which he has not been willing to do.  He did real good until the last day.  (We were there for three days.)  I think he missed home.  During one the last girls games, he came over and sat with us and just kind of leaned into me.  He may be several inches taller than me, but he is still a 14-year-old boy.
