Happy Royals Day, everyone!
If you’ve been following my blog for a while, then you know I’m a huge Kansas City Royals fan. I was born and raised in Kansas City (well, a suburb of, but same difference). I don’t watch any sports, but Royals baseball.
I’ll never forget my first Royals game. It was actually in high school and I remember I had no idea what was happening. I didn’t understand sports. I still don’t, except baseball of course.
Wonderfully enough, my fiance and I had our first date at a Royals game nearly four years ago.
I have all these really wonderful memories with Paul and our friends at Royals games. Isn’t that what baseball is all about? And, let’s be honest… The Royals weren’t always so hot. They haven’t won the World Series since 1985… I wasn’t even born then.
But, something totally magical happened. Paul and I were fortunate enough to head to the Wild Card game last year. Which led them to the World Series! What the what?
Then of course, we headed down again this year and believe it or not, they’re in the World Series again! Just typing it brings me goosebumps and tears to my eyes. The Royals make me emotional. I can’t help it.
Anyway, I know that Royals baseball has brought me a ton of wonderful memories. And, more than anything… I want my first graders to have those wonderful memories too. And so therefore, we have to celebrate the amazingness of the Royals and the World Series!
I feel like this team just has so much to teach our kids. They never give up. They are confident, positive, and work together and support one another. They are the true definition of team.
So, I created this small little 120 mystery chart and I want to share it with all of you! You can click the picture below to download!
