...NOW WE CHEER FOR THE A's!!!!Uncle Gabe signed a contract with the Oakland A's this season, so, for his birthday, Unlce Gabe, Aunt Kelly and Cousin Allie sent Gehrig this awesome A's jersey!! Can't wait to (hopefully) go watch him play some spring training games in AZ!!!!
On Friday Gehrig wore his new jersery to school for "Show & Teach." "Show & Teach" is similar to "Show & Tell," however, his teacher wanted the class to not merely bring in a toy and tell about it, but to bring in something that they could "teach" the class about. So Gehrig wore his new jersey and decided to teach his classmate about the positions on the field, So he learned all the names of the players on the field and where they stand. Of course, becuase I am "that" mom, I went to watch his presentation, and he did SUCH AN AWESOME JOB!!! Below I have a video of him practicing his presentation at home, but I just wish so badly that I would have taped his actual presentation to the class. He was talking about the infield in the outfield, who catches grounders and who catches pop flies. At the end, he got a big 'ol smile on his face and ask, "Questions????" Not once did he sit down, ask mommy if that was right, or announce that he "had to pee so badly" (you'll see on the video, LOL!).
Afterward I saw little Shaylee walk over to him, give him a big hug and tell him that he did such a good job on his presentation!!!!!
