We attended the New York Botanical Garden Train Show on Saturday, our second time going to see the holiday exhibit.
Weaknesses: Unfocused and easily distracted during warm-ups and non-shooting drills. Tends to be a bit aloof from coaches and teammates. Occasional practitioner of slapstick comedy.
Strengths: Pure jump shooter who comes alive with the ball in his hands and can create his own shot off the dribble. Scrappy rebounder. Occasional practitioner of slapstick comedy.
Projects as: Shooting guard/future Harlem Globetrotter
We are filling up the last few weekends of summer with plenty of activities. Friday evening, Henry was reunited with a few of his daycare friends at a picnic in Battery City Park. It was nice to see Wren, Sigourney and Aubrey (with parents) for some play time. We hope to continue the reunions semi-regularly as more of the families from daycare return from summer trips and other obligations.
Saturday, we went across the river to Eamonn and Emily’s neighborhood in Jersey City for La Festa Italiana. This is an annual event that raises money for the Holy Rosary Church. It is much like a street fair/carnival with better, more authentic Italian food, cheap wine with peaches and gambling involved. Henry had fun hanging out with the grownups and winning an alien from a baseball throw.
