At Clavis school the boys are taking football and cricket as after school activities. Cricket is pretty much the same as baseball, when viewed as an activity for ten year olds. One patient coach, two boys with amazing God-given talent to track and catch a ball, and about ten more boys who may or may not some day develop the ability to play a bit of cricket. After 50 minutes everyone is slightly bored and the game reverts to the time honored boy activity of 'wrestle on the ground'. Will and Sam do not suck at cricket, and both got a few hits. They cannot bowl to save their lives, as they want to pitch it across the plate instead of producing the bounce of a 'slow bowl'.
This week Will went on a field trip to the hydroelectic plant, while Sam got to go to the town dump for his field trip. Apparently, a trip to the dump costs 70 Ru (2 bucks). Sams' class is studying recycling and trash - hence the dump. He was most impressed by the tractor smushing stuff. They then ate lunch at the beach - a pretty cool lunch spot!
Waiting for children to finish practice covers all countries.
