I'd love to find something like this in the Washington area for you to participate in. I think it will teach you humility and sensitivity for others.

Buddy Baseball

Keshet Buddy Baseball All Star Game Keshet's Buddy Baseball allows children with physical and developmental disabilities to participate in the all-American sport of baseball and with the help of typical teenagers, it allows friendships to form and substantial barriers to be dissolved.

This year hundreds of players, fans and buddies joined Keshet at
Wrigley Field for the 5th annual all-star game. We were joined by our friends from Chicago Youth Programs, an organization which serves at-risk youths from the Cabrini Green, Washington Park, and Uptown Community.

Keshet's Buddy baseball is an opportunity like no other for children with disabilities.

I've looked all over the Internet but haven't found anything like this in Washington, DC. I wonder if this is something we can start here. I will lob an email into the Chicago organizers to see what they say.

Here are some photos from your Pirates and Yankees games this week. I will keep adding photos to this as the season wears on.

Love you.

First Week of School Photos!

I need to get rid of the borders around everything on here. I am just getting started with this so there will be a few hiccups.

I am very excited because your teacher, Mrs. Schuman (who happens to by my doctor's daughter), is posting pictures of you and your classmates to the web.

I will keep putting more and more of these photos on here as the school year progresses.

Learning to Read through Comics?

As you are now really learning to read, I thought that maybe a baseball comic book might be a fun way to go. It reminds me of the movie "Big" where Josh Baskin helps a kid (a fellow kid, really) with his algebra math homework by making him think in terms of sports. 

You love all baseball books. I'll try to find this - it is out of print - and we can give it a try. Might be a good step up from the Bob and Dr. Suess books.
