Heidi who knew a little about basguit ball agreed. to every one's amazement when kennon was given the ball, he started getting exited. heidi was pushing him round the court kennon was bouncing the ball when he heard the bleep of the hoop. "Okay kennon." said jamason as soon as kennon heard the hoop's sound he signolled with his arms wheir the hoop was. although heidi could see wheir it was it was up to kennon to be able to recognize wheir it was. when he got closer to the hoop he suddenly signolled the stop sign. they wheir shocked because it was on the free point line. to every one's amazement kennon seemed to know this suddenly before any one could objeckt kennon bounced the ball once and through it toords the hoop. to every one's amazement it went in. every one was shocked they had found something kennon could really do. jamason then got an electrick wheel chair from the van that they had kept for kennon for when he got better with his mobility. now he senced kennon would need it. when kennon heard the noise he said with a cry.
"Cool wheel chair like scott's and iquentas and bethany's and raymands. is kennons?" he asked.
"Lets see how you handol it first kennon." said jamason. jamason transferd kennon in to the wheelchair and left heidi to sho him how it worked. his computer was put in the tray on the frount of his wheel chair so it was in easy reach of him. kennon quickly learned the controles of the chair and started to smile with aparront happyness on his face.
"Kennon move him self now." kennon said then he opend his mouth and made his first sound, it was a wooping sound. after letting kennon wheel him self round the cort jamason then sat in kennon's manual wheel chair and through the ball toords kennon as soon as he heard the bounce of the ball kennon wheeld him self to it and picked it up then he stayed still.
"Hang on why is he not driboling the ball like the ones on tv do." said scott.
"Well" said brandon "In wheel chair basguit ball you all move round the cort but the player with the ball stay's still like kennon is doing, the player then has to decide if they can shoot from wheir they are or weather they can pass, also the ball has sounds in it whih you can here and it also has a bleep on the hoop which you can here so you know wheir the hoop is. the two hoops both have diffrent sounds then both teams know which one to shoot at." kennon allready knew this and listend to the hoop.
"Daddy jamason". kennon said
"Here kennon over here now." on hering jamason's voice kennon through the ball to him then moved round the court and they kept throwing the ball to eachother. suddenly when jamason through one ball to kennon he put it in the hoop. all the other children wanted a go so all the children wheeld them selves on to the pitch jamason and brandon stood behind the two hoops and heidi stood at the side watching with amazement as the children all started to get the hang of it little by little. every one was amazed by how good kennon was and a new respect grew for them all. suddenly jamason got another set of wheel chairs out of the van that the mobility shop had hired them for the day to transport all the chairs which the man from the shop was driving.
