See that lonely basketball hoop in the photo above? It’s the sign that basketball season has ended. Tom’s team had its final game last weekend. No more two-evening-a-week practices and no more weekend games. A calmer schedule. I think of it as a sports break for me, even though Tom and Huck would much rather play sports all the time. I like these breaks; it means I have more time to read.
However . . .
This week, Huck started playing baseball. It’s his first year in Little League. Practices. Games. A busier schedule.
No sports breaks for this mom. But lots of fun. Look at that green, green grass. Baseball is a definite sign that spring has arrived, or is at least on its way. Will my son think I don’t care about him if I read an Emily Dickinson bibliography in the bleachers? 😉
See you in the stacks!
