I’m so proud of Scotty! He really enjoyed himself at his first football practice. No shy baby behavior…just excited and happy to be there and participating and listening and learning…as much as a small child can. He did so well.
I didn’t notice, however, til I got home and unloaded my camera, that he had a big smile on his face in just about every shot! He was really, really having a ball.
There he goes again! It’s amazing to me how varied the little boys’ football skills are. A couple of the boys looked as if they’d been playing for years and then some, like Bee, don’t know much about the game yet…
These kids are all 6 and 7 years old…not that much age difference, but really, really apparent in some of them. We have another "pre-season" practice this Thursday and the first real game next Tuesday. I think Bee’s gonna love it.
"RUN, BEE, RUN!!!" Yep, I’m one of those obnoxious, screaming moms that I swore I’d never be…even at the practices! (Just to let you in on a secret…Daddy was yelling too!!!)
Will wanted to play, but we weren’t able to work it out with his doing Boy Scouts too… And, I don’t know, I think Bee really shone because he wasn’t distracted by his brother…(maybe among other reasons too.)
