Christmas Olympics – Day 4 – Slam Dunk Mouse!

Posted by Santa Claus on December 2nd, 2012

Have you ever seen playing basketball? It is not easy when you are so small.  The basket is very high.  But never give up, you know!

Mouse the Littlest Elf wanted to be an Olympic star.  A basketball star!

She got four of her elf friends to make a team.  They practiced every day.  They got really good at dribbling.  They got really good at passing. They got really fast around the court.  But they could not shoot the ball through the hoop.  The basket was just too high.

Mouse wanted to be like Michael Jordan.  She wanted to slam dunk the ball!

Did you know that Michael Jordan is six feet six inches tall?  Mouse is just a wee bit shorter than that (ok, she’s a LOT shorter than that!).  She tried very hard to jump high. Every day she got a little bit higher. But she was a long way from the hoop. Then she had an idea.

Mouse had a friend called Buddy the Elf.  Buddy was a very tall elf.  Mouse got on his shoulders to take a shot.  She got higher but not high enough.  “I need more elves,” said Mouse.  Three more elves got on to Buddy’s shoulders. Mouse climbed to the very top.

It was very wobbly!  But SLAM DUNK!  Mouse did it!  She jumped for joy.

Uh-oh!  It was not a good idea to jump.  Buddy wobbled.  The other elves wobbled.  Mouse wobbled.  Ho! Ho! Ho!  Another slam dunk … Mouse went head first into the basket, laughing all the way!

Merry Christmas!

    I had to complete math homework. It was hard, and I’d try five or six times if I didn’t get it. If I didn’t get it after that I would ask my teacher the next day for help.

    When I have something very hard to do like my gymnastics bar routine I always keep trying until I reach my goal I set for myself or maybe I am doing a hard part of my floor routine I set a little practice time each day until I can do it perfectly.

    i think this is teaching you a lesson because just because your small does not mean you do not have to give up your dreams!

    Way to go Mouse I comend thee for never giving up and for asking for help when needed. It is always important to ask for help when needed. I also try never to give up and ask for help when needed. We should all take a lesson from your play book Mouse.

    Hi I’m Buster the dog. And I am having a problam so that is why I’m writing to you Santa. When my master Noah goes to sleep at 9:00 I can’t jump up into the bed with him when I haven’t seen him all day because he has school. So I have to sleep on the ground witch isn’t so bad after a little while, you should try it
