Today, while sitting in the waiting room at the clinic, I explained the concept of a batting average to Isaiah for the first time. That has to be one of the top 5 classic dad/son conversations. I remember learning the concept from my dad. My only hesitation was the concern that in introducing the idea I was somehow robbing him of something of the simple joy he finds in baseball. But he's beginning to notice and keep track of details much more this year, so I think, ultimately, it will be fun for him.
After two games he's batting .600.
I'm sure you were wondering. I might just toss that out occasionally this season.
In other news... His counts are way up at 2700 today. Next week we've got a spinal tap - it's either our last or second-to-last, depending on how they treat the last month of treatment (July). Can hardly believe we're using the word "last" in reference to his treatment.
Here are some of the great pictures Isaiah's godfather, Steve, took during a recent Sunday afternoon snow shoeing trip.
Thanks for checking-in!
