Rob and I have spent some time
over the years trying to find at least one sport
that "clicks" with each of our kids.
we were unsuccessful for quite a while.
She discovered that she likes basketball through Upward
when she was in 7th grade
and she is quite good.
For Chris, he took to baseball right away.
He has been playing since he was five
(he was swinging a bat on his first birthday!)
and he is at the Minor League now
with his father as his coach.
He makes me laugh because each day
he makes a beeline for the Sports section,
just like I remember my brother doing.
For Trey, we tried baseball first.
Not a good fit.
Then we tried soccer.
Again, not a good fit.
He started begging to try Karate
and after putting him off for a time,
he started Karate several weeks ago.
I think we have a match!
He is really enjoying the classes
and heck, he looks just adorable
in his Karate uniform.
