the most rewarding..



so my nephew who is 5 is going to play t-ball this summer. ..

and he doesn't have a father figure is his life so my sister asked if i would teach him how to hit, catch, run, etc...

so it was a nice day out yesterday so we went out and played.

it was sooo self-gratifing teaching him these things, and seeing him improve!

and the best part was just before he went to bed he came and gave me a big hug and a card that he had made thanking me and it even had stickers on it!

ya it was a nice day, just thought i'd share

that's great joey. Have a lot of fun with the little guy and I'm sure that he's going to appreciate everything you have to teach him.

Did you tell him you were going to throw a disc at him and make him back up forever until he was lost in all the trees this time??

Hehe that's so awesome though Joey. Those kids are lucky to have you around, even though you do torture them.

That's wicked joey.
I know what it's like, my job is working with kids and teaching them sports and stuff. It's damn fun and great to see them getting a hit, or getting that first basket.

wow joey, that's great! i know the feeling of teaching little kids and that feeling you get when they just get it, it's incredible.

and the card and hug must make it that much better.

way to go

that's awsome Joey.. I teach drawing to kids, and seeing them learn new things and become more confident is truely a wonderful experience.

my fave is when they learn to make things look 3d on a 2d piece of paper. magic.
