    In just a couple of months, his interest in basketball grew from a 2 to a 20. Whether he's practicing his dunk on the hoop hanging on his door, watching his favorite players on tv, or taking a shot on the "big boy" hoop on the playground, he's always excited to show off his moves as he attempts to emulate the greats. All the while yelling out "watch this daddy!" And what an amazing thing it is for a father to not just watch his son, but guide him through the ups and downs of chasing a dream.

    There's an insurmountable sense of anticipation in this photograph that I can't get enough of. Your caption makes this moment completely come to life and I find myself so interested and involved in this young boy's dream. I love seeing the basketball suspended in air. Beautiful, Lisa!
