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.
