It’s about to get all braggy up in here because he did so great!
He pitched the first two innings and caught the last three.
Some stats for you….
He faced 7 batters. 3 strikeouts. 2 hits. 0 runs scored. 2 defensive plays – out at first. In this league there are no walks – if the batter gets to 4 balls the coach stepped in 2x to complete the at bat – that happened 2x.
He also hit 3 for 3. A double and two singles. Made it home twice.
Our little superstar.
Blake’s first Gr4 soccer day was a soggy one, but the kids had a terrific time.
Mr Anderson put the kids into 2 equal groups of 7 and made a schedule with half playing each half. When he met with the opposing side at the start of each game they would decide how many to play each game. If he was playing a big class they might be 10 vs 10. If he needed extras he would ask the kids, who wants an extra run. Blake put his hand up every single time. Blake played his heart out, ran his guts out and always wanted to be part of the action. That makes me pretty darn proud.
After a full day of soccer, he went to baseball practice for 2 hours. Pretty great day, all around.
We are finishing up our staycation over Golden Week, a holiday to celebrate China’s birthday and the Moon Festival/Lantern Festival.
For us there was lots of laziness, Lego, books, dinners with friends, gymnastics, tennis and catch.
Blake’s tennis class.
And audiobooks – Blake has been devouring the audiobooks on the ipad Kimbra loaned him. Thanks Kimmy!
And this boy’s never met a hot chocolate he didn’t like. Even on a very warm, late summer afternoon.
Today was Blake’s 5th cardboard challenge!
An incredible day full of creativity, imagination, resourcefullness, collaboration, cooperation and SO MUCH MORE.
I remember he made an art museum in Kinder, a robot in Gr 1, a robot in G2, an arcade in Gr 3. Today he made an Haunted Pizzeria with Skeeball games inside.
What a fantastic day!
Blake has two after school sessions going on right now. Animation with me and Ultimate Frisbee with Mr Anderson. He likes animation. He LOVES ultimate.
James’ Ultimate team won the China Nationals last year and James got MVP of the whole tournament! We are getting spoiled learning with the greatest teacher imaginable.
