Lucas got to play a game with the big kids last week. Some of them a foot taller than him, others just few inches. But you know, those kids that have two digit birthdays. And Lucas thought about it, and thought about it for few days after his invitation from the coach. We watched a game they were playing after his game the previous week. And he decided he wanted to give it a try.
He game me one look back, as he’s warming up for batting. I could almost hear his little heart speaking “I’m OK Mamá. I’m OK.” But maybe it was just me thinking. Because he did just fine. And Mark was there too, helping, coaching the bases and the dug out.
