Raef and Zach each got to choose the sport they wanted to play this season. Raef chose baseball. During the first few weeks, he was the most enthusiastic cheerer out there. But that has kind of waned. Finally, a little while ago Raef made a confession on the way home from his game. He doesn't like baseball. He thinks it is boring.
I am really shocked. I mean, he gets to stand in the outfield as pitch after pitch goes past the hitter, with an occasional connection that never comes his way. Why would he think it is boring?
I was talking to one of the moms yesterday and she told me he is her favorite player. Apparently, at one of the games he had his glove on his head and the ball actually did come his way. He caught it with his bare hand.
I think we are going to try basketball next.
