Amy and I frequently babysit two boys named Noah and Jonah. Seven and five-years-old, respectively, we can’t keep them indoors on nice evenings like we had today.
They like to play kickball in our backyard with the other kids who live near us. We’ve had 8-player games of kickball in my backyard before. I inevitably join in… and even my neighbor, his wife, and daughter have played in the past. Total Americana.
The one thing I can’t figure out… the kids who live nearby never organize these games of kickball except when Amy and I are watching the boys. The games always end up in my backyard… the unlikeliest of place given the large 10′ x 12′ shed that sits smack-dab in the center of my yard. I was just pondering this tonight as the kids were enjoying the first game of Spring.
