after school special

Kids are just the best. One day at recess during my second year of teaching, I found a very tiny student of mine wandering alone while the other kids played four square and basketball or just ran around.

"Tiny Man, why aren't you playing with the other kids?" I asked.
"I never played sports," he replied rather forlornly.

At that moment, one of my favorites from that year wandered over and held out a kickball to Tiny Man. "Do you want to play ball?" he asked, in the sweetest little voice. At that, Tiny Man grinned and they ran off together to play with the ball. Sigh. What an after school special-type moment!
