This weekend I helped a friend - a professional photographer - with his photo shoot of nearly 200 Little Leaguers. I was apprehensive beforehand as the paperwork (my job) can easily go wrong and I hate crowds.
Well, everything went well and I discovered two things:
1) I don't hate crowds after all (it's only CA and DC crowds that I could never tolerate).
2) I experienced an enjoyable and wholesome day of family fun. Team moms were very helpful in expediting our job, keeping the kids in line, bringing us food and drink, etc. Point: I was wrong to deny myself and my children this experience ...
What are your thoughts and feelings on children's sports?
