Great Catch

This was fun to watch last night during the Phillies game television broadcast. A father caught a foul ball and watch what happened:

((Video removed from youtube!))

What really impressed me was the father's reaction; he responded very well to the situation. Great catch, high-fives all around, and then the ball was gone! That parental response (or teacher response) to a child's action is very important. How do you handle unexpected situations like this? Kids will always surprise us with what they say and do -- and how we respond to those things has an impact.

(Note: If you are trying to watch this at a computer at the school, I am not sure if these videos will show through the district's filter. You may have to check back from a home computer.)
