Introducing Kickball

“I’m old enough to know better, but young enough to do it anyway.”

At one of the schools I visited, where an American expat lives and teaches, the forth grade boys have fallen in love with kickball. Since there are no fields, they use a small courtyard for their game and have incorporated the surrounding buildings into their play. For instance,if you kick the ball over the fence you are out, and two of the bases are drains hanging off of adjacent buildings. The best part about watching them was just how excited they got! I guess it’s true, boys everywhere love sports.

Here are the girls who unfortunately they don’t play. They sit there watching, chatting, and giggling with their friends instead.
