FLAG FOOTBALL

Gavin has been asking for awhile now to play football, and I was procrastinating signing him up. As a mom, I really don't want him to fall in love with this sport. Don't get me wrong, flag football is just fine. They are so cute out there running on the field. But when it comes time to tackle and get agressive physically, I'm not sure I want to be the Mommy watching her son get all banged up. But, I want him to play and enjoy sports now while he is young, so I signed him up. Well, he had his first game today and he loved it. Loved it. Did I mention, LOVED IT? It was so cute to watch all the little 5 year olds running around the field. I was very impressed at how quickly they caught on. His little friends, Cullen and Lawson are on his team so that makes it extra fun as well. They were all quite enamored with their mouth pieces. They felt big.
They aren't the Cowboys, Texans, or Steelers...no they wanted to be named the Jellyfish! So watch out other teams- the Jellyfish are good!!
Go Gavin, Go!! His own personal cheerleader who was very excited to see her brother!

So cute. He does look very grown up out there with those flags flying behind him as he runs! He'll have two good cheerleaders that's for sure! Great pics Lace!
