When a dribble becomes a torrent

Alexi, seized by the coaching creativity muse and confused about the season/sport, moved part of yesterday’s practice to the nearby baseball infield. In Seattle, water dribbling is an important skill on the ‘pitch.’ Or maybe he thought he was coaching water polo?

Nothing beats a childhood where one is allowed to be a child. Kudos to you! He will never forget this as I have fond memories of splashing in puddles!

I love how you use the big pics and there is nothing like playing in puddles and mud as a child. I have some great pictures of my best friend and I covered in mud!!! I am sure her mom was thrilled when we took a shower at their house :)
