What Made Your Day Special? – 100 Day Blog Challenge – Day 97

Special Day

Two things happened that made the day special.  No, wait, make that three.

First, I was finally able to touch base with one of Elijah’s first “teachers” from the Head Start program.  It’s been 6 years, and he still talks about the experience.  He’s got a mind like a sponge.  I got to speak with her, reminded her of who we were and thanked her for all she did that year.  He had fun and I made arrangements to stop by sometime this week for her to see how he’s grown.  This made my morning.

Next, I got an invitation for a play date at the park with April and our kids.  The boys had fun, even though Elijah reluctantly came with us.  I wasn’t sure what was going on with his attitude, but when we got to the park (at their school) his whole attitude changed.  He saw some of his friends and had a blast.  Justus and Isaac had so much fun, and Justus got to spend time with one of his classmates.  April and I got to know each other better and it was a great afternoon for us all.  As an added bonus, the boys got ice cream from their grandmother.

The day was capped off with Elijah’s softball game.  Wow, what a game.  He and his team had a great day and came out the winners.  Elijah had a pretty impressive game as well.  A double, a triple, and 2 runs scored.  So proud of him.  He had great form, he followed through with his swings and made contact with the ball.  Oh, what a great game.  This was a real confidence boost for the whole team.  Great job all around.

 All in all, this was a really good day.
