Upon entry of Grade 1, the world of school sport was opened to my Sport’s Boy and there is no stopping him. The fall sport of choice was a new one for all of us but Blake embraced cricket with great excitement.
I won’t share my initial thoughts of the sport; let it suffice to say that I find it quite interesting. And no matter how silly I thought the uniforms were/are, when my skinny boy appeared dressed in his oversized white shorts, collared polo shirt, navy knee-length socks and a wide brimmed (fairy) hat, I thought he was the cutest thing on the planet…well minus the hat.
Here is an action shot…
I love how the knee high socks remained at their ankles.
His last match was yesterday, not sure where the time went but it is over. Apparently, they pick up again with cricket in the spring so the money I spent on the (ridiculous) uniform will be worn again….actually the shorts are so big they will be worn for at least another 2 years.
Blake is finished with Cricket and now onto this………
…Rugby, a familiar sport and one Bay embraces with great passion….and thankfully no hat!
