Today is going to be a busy day. I'm at the tail end of the graveyard shift, but will be going to the first Saturday morning of this semester of my volunteer gig. We are still in COVID mode, so we'll be outside again, but I will be bringing a portable crash pad so the kids can practice ukemi. We might not be playing actual full-contact judo, but we will be able to practice the basics so our classes don't fall too far behind.
After classes end around noon, I will be going to my friend Kid's house to celebrate his sons' opening Little League baseball game. As an added bonus, our great and good friend J-Co will be coming down from Boston for the festivities.
It's going to be a good day, albeit a busy one, a day spent with old friends and young friends- guys I went to high school with, men and women I've coach with for many years, and young student athletes. I'm going to be one tired guy at the end of the festivities, but that's the price one pays for being involved with people.
