Kickball Champion!!

I did my first practicum today, and the kids immediately decided that I was perfect kickball material. "You're on our team!"

So I played. My first hit was bunt, which dissapointed the kids. I was trying to not unbalance the game too much.
Second time at bat, I kicked it deep into right field. A kid tryed to block my way, confident that I wouldn't bowl him over. His gamble didn't fail, but it didn't pay off either. I simply scooped him up and continued running, child firmly tucked into my right arm.
In-field home run! Does it count for extra if you bring the second baseman with you?
No doubt I'll be expected to play with the kids tomorrow. Being a teacher is so cool.
