Every year we have a Family Fun Night at my school. The first few years we played a student/teacher game of basketball. The teachers had a huge advantage because they have the height on the kids. I never played because I’m just not really good at basketball and I didn’t want to embarrass myself in front of everyone.
Last year they switched over to a student/teacher kickball game. Not that I’m good at kickball, but I’m more comfortable with it. I can kick pretty ok, but I’m afraid to catch the ball. I usually try to take a position where no one kicks the ball. I’m ok with running after the ball, so I also work pretty well as a back up in case the ball is missed and it goes in to the field. I can also throw pretty good, so that is helpful! I was REALLY excited this year because I actually caught a fly ball!!!! I was so amazed that I jumped up and down and acted like an idiot! I’m sure my facial expression was priceless!!! I also got someone out at second. I was pretty proud of myself!! The teachers beat the students for the sixth year in a row. I know I should feel bad, but I don’t. haha!! 🙂
