Hi! I’m Charlie and I am seven and in 2nd grade. My Mom is Meg. Here are some things about me you might want to know. Everyone thinks I have good handwriting. They were all surprised because the way my hands look! I love art, Lego’s, foosball and video games.
Up until now, I have only played soccer and basketball. But they are not my favorites. My favorite sports are archery and baseball. I only play archery at camp and sometimes baseball, but I had never worn a glove. I think my parents did not think it would fit me, so I never got to try.
But when I was in Nantucket, they saw I was a really good hitter. I told them that I liked soccer, but what I really want to try is baseball on a team. My parents were not sure, but I told them let’s try. So, when I got back from my vacation, they took me to a Sports store and my dad tried different baseball gloves on me. Guess what? The glove fit even though I have only two fingers on my left hand! I told them that now I want to get good, before I start to play in the springtime. I am very excited.
I think I taught my parents that I should always try anything, even though I only have two fingers. Now I need to also find an archery team somewhere near where I live!
