A Home Run

The other night we decided to take the kids to play tennis after dinner. My boys are ages 7 and 9. This was their first time on a tennis court. They had been asking for a while to go so we thought we would give it a try.
The ball was all over all 6 courts.
My 7 year old hit the ball really hard and it went out of the court. He smiled and said, "I hit a home run."
"There aren't home runs in tennis, honey."
"But mom, it went over the fence."
"Yes it did."
One nice thing did happen. We started out with two tennis balls and ended up with 4 when we left. How funny.

What Does It Mean?

My 7 year old stumbled over the word, "microclimate" tonight while doing his homework. I asked him if he knew what a climate was. He did not. So I asked his older brother who was sitting next to us if he knew what climate meant.

He said, "You know when you go up a mountain. You climb it."

I tried not to laugh.

Too cute.
