Edward’s Eyes was a tear-jerker! This simple story was packed full of beautiful and tender moments. The poetry of the knuckleball. The gift of signs. The joy of summer.
We started book club by talking about the book – about Jake’s family, about signs, about baseball, about loving others deeply.
Four Hope College baseball players then came to talk with us about baseball and then play ball with us. Kyle (reliever), Matt (outfielder), Ben (reliever), and Nick (catcher) answered our baseball related questions, gave us some inside scoops on baseball lingo, signs, and superstitions. They were fantastic! So fun to have them join us.
Matt and Kyle then led the boys in some baseball drills.
Such a wonderful way to spend a summer evening!
