O decided to play football this year, which is a HUGE change for this soccer family! I'm glad he is trying out new sports, but football is a huge time commitment. Before school started they had 4 practices a week, 2 hours long each. Once school started they dropped down to 3 practices a week plus games on Saturdays (at either 9am, or 5 pm).
I do love the sport, but I must say that leaving the house at 7:15 AM and not getting home until after 8 PM is a bit rough!
O loves it though, and I guess that is all that matters. B loves it too, I call it her social hour(s), she plays with all the sisters that are too young to be cheerleaders. I've really seen her social skills blossom since football has started.
Here's O (and his side kick B) before his first game - we gave in and let him have a mohawk, which we promptly cut off Sunday evening before going back to school on Monday.
