Balls and Leadership

I'm sitting in carpickup early, watching kids play on the playground.

A pack of kids chases a big ball this way and that way around the field cheering screaming.

Someone kicks the ball too hard and it goes to the kindergarten playground, the one that's fenced off to protect the little guys.

 Right now there are NO little guys over there so one speedy machine of an athlete squeezes between impossibly narrow bars and runs after the ball.

Kids scream after him NOOoooo! NOOOO! You'll get in TROUBLE! STOP! but the kid is back across the fence before trouble could come.

Because of him, the game goes on.

I shake my head and smile, delighted to have witnessed a born leader in action.
