His Teacher Hit Him

Friday afternoon

Saturday morning

It's true.

Sort of.

Leo was running into home base- crossed home plate and turned to retrieve his hat that had fallen off. His teacher, student teacher to be precise, was picking up a homemade bat- built from a 5 gallon water jug, empty, and a long stick.

Guess where the stick landed???

His first real shiner. Let's hope it's his last. The pictures really don't do it justice. It's much more hideous in person.

Edited to add...

She/He is absolutely right. Teachers do get a bad rap. It was totally meant as a funny nod to the olden days. He was hit in the face by the student teacher. We have a very good relationship with the school and lead teacher- my partner teaches at this school. There are no concerns about this being anything other than an accident and we never considered it anything else. We(the student teacher, teacher, and I) laughed about it today.

Wow! That is a nice one. Even with the shiner that is one good looking kid! How's he dealing with the it? My son is either a total wimp or thinks he is such a tough guy when something like that happens. Thanks for sharing on your blog. It makes for good reading.
