Wordless Wednesday - Football!!

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.

It is good that he wants to explore other sports, maybe meet different friends.

I love his mohawk! My soccer playing son tried football for a couple of years. He enjoyed it, but his first love will always be soccer. Thanks for joining the party at Tales of a Pee Dee Mama.
