Sundays in My City--Kickball

This week my big kids taught my little kids how to play kickball.

I'm grateful we have a large property with plenty of room for the kids to run around.

We used chairs as bases so the kids could get the concept of stopping at each base.

Theresa (4 years) did very well. She played the game with a huge grin on her face.

Just a tiny kick. Better run, Theresa!

Safe on her chair!

Some of the kids got very comfortable and like all beginning players tended to get distracted when on the bases. This is Chola.

Here is Queenie with a big kick.

And she's off!

Troy crouching into position--trying to get an out.

And it's back to pitching

Aside from a few tears and frustrations, the kids picked up on the game quite well. They got plenty of exercise and are learning important team playing lessons as well as getting coordinated. I'm really proud of my big kids for organizing this game.

Join me as I travel the world blog-style via Unknown Mami's Sundays in My City Carnival.
