Baseball Games

While the Cardinals and the Red Sox battled it out back in the States, we had a fierce game of baseball in our front yard this afternoon.  Boys from three countries (America, Canada, and the Solomon Islands) mapped out a baseball diamond and roped Aaron and Chief Leonard into playing with them.  First base was at the top of our steps, where Aaron is standing.  To give perspective, I have to shift into first gear and gun the engine to get the car up the driveway.  It's pretty steep.

Caroline even jumped in and batted, but after running up those steps to first base, she decided that home was where she belonged on a Sunday afternoon!

Chief Leonard covered third base (the tree) like he had been playing baseball all of his life!  For several hours, I heard shrieks of laughter and cheers in three languages (Pijin, Lavukaleve, and English).  What a fabulous way to spend a Sunday afternoon!

Sounds like a wonderful afternoon! We love pick up baseball games in the front yard at our house too... though it's a little flatter ;-)

That is a very innovative place to play baseball!
