Henry's love of sports, particularly baseball and football, continues with a vengeance this Spring.
I got worried about it at one point and a friend who is a teacher assured me that he was normal. She said that kids need to be able to learn one thing, just one thing, and then everything else can be related to that thing.
I'm feeling pretty clear on what Henry's One Thing is. Here's the run down:
SHAPES - he has learned his shapes by studying the shape of the baseball field, the squares of the bases and the rooftop of home plate.
COLORS - by studying the jerseys of every single team in existence, of course.
NUMBERS - yard lines, innings, players' numbers on their jerseys.
TAKING TURNS - innings.
LETTERS - A starts Alabama. Enough said.
MUSIC - learning the fight songs and having the entire family sing them. Repeatedly.
GEOGRAPHY - "It's a long trip from our house to Bryant-Denny Stadium."
