Tomorrow we'll be traveling an hour, yes an hour, on a Saturday morning for the boys' third football game. One thing I've learned living in Kansas is you have to drive to find people to compete against. Living in Kansas makes Warsaw, Indiana look like a booming metropolis!
I forced the boys to pose for me before their first game. Hey, I'm the MOM!! Photos of "firsts" are my right!!
Don't they look impressed?? Ha!
This is their first year in tackle football and they love it, even if they might not really understand what it is they are supposed to be doing. Heck, I don't even understand exactly what they are supposed to be doing on that football field. (Basketball will be a whole different story! DR says I can only attend basketball games if I'm gagged!)
This year we have #30 Yip and #9 Yap.
I've got lots of shots where Yip is blocking and he's made some good tackles!
Yip blocking...good job!!
Yip blocking while Yap #9 is looking on. Yap doesn't quite get the whole gist of football yet. He's not quite as willing to jump into the mix as Yip. I have yet to get a good photo of my #9 in action.
Of one the dads told me not to worry about Yap though. He said as soon as Yap realizes that football is nothing more than legalized fighting then he'll be right in the middle and be just fine. HA!
Two games down and 4 to go!! Wish em' luck tomorrow...they need it!
