Over the past couple of months, James has become more interested in playing with other boys from his class. This is an exciting first.
First I heard the boys' names from James at home. I asked his aide, who told me I was hearing their names properly and that they were good kids who played football at recess. James watched them as the weeks passed. I heard when someone got "hit" and someone ran after the ball.
Then James moved closer, onto the field. Once of twice, they boys got carried away with their game and "hit" him as they bumped into him.
Today I heard that today, James chose playing with his classmates with some touch football over computers.
One of those sweet breakthrough moments that I intend to savour.
