Today I scheduled Tyler's 7th grade physical for school and football, which I wasn't thrilled about doing. I knew that Tyler had an 8:00 baseball game tonight and with shots and all that wasn't the best day for a physical. When I called in the appointment, I was told that today was the day (at 5:20) and there wasn't a better time to do it. The doctors are all booked and today was called "Sports Physical Day" where they schedule appointments every 20 minutes. Very personalized, huh?! Oh, well...I suggested to Tyler to take them on his backside and not slide into home plate or sit on the bench. Of course he thought that was ridiculous and took two shots in each arm reluctantly.
Now Tyler isn't the best of ball players, but he can hit a decent double and a few times triple, but has NEVER in his lifetime hit a home run until tonight. I barely caught the play....busy talking to another teacher at the game (imagine that!). So, I asked Tyler to reenact the play after the game. Tyler is a compliant child, but reminded me that it looks pretty dumb with no batter's helmet on and no other players around. He's right, but I NEEDED that picture! It's a historical day...home run and Michael Jackson's passing!
