It's Football Time!

This year Sam has started a new sport. He's always done soccer in the fall and spring along with basketball in the winter. Sam has been begging us lately for him to do football. So this fall he is doing flag football with the Upward program. After the weeks worth of rain that we got here they were finally able to play their first game this past Saturday. Sam's team WON! He hasn't been on a winning team these past few seasons as in not winning a single game so it was so great to see his team win. Sam mainly played defense at the game but did get a chance to play offense too. Here's a picture of him going after a flag on the opposing teams player. I love the look on his face. There is such determination which he has a lot of and if he wants (after watching him at practices and this game) I can see him going a long way with football.

Love that expression! What is going on with the kid in the background? Is that spit coming off of his face? lol.

Go Sam!!! I always wanted a little football player:-)
I have to wonder what that is on the kid's face in the background, too. Funny:-)

That is a spectacular photo! I love it!

If this is your first year with Upward, let me say "YOU ARE IN FOR A TREAT!" It is a fantastic program. My kids have done basketball for several years and started cheerleading last year. They have a great time!

The "thing" coming out of the other kids mouth is part of his mouthguard. The kids have to wear them to play and this kid apparently purchased the one that ataches to a helmet.

What an amazing photo, Kim!!!! I'm so glad Sam is enjoying football. My son played flag football for 2 years in K and 1st grade. Sadly for him, the coaches did not make it fun so he didn't continue on when it went to tackle. I was not sad. ;) But now he's making noises about wanting to play next year for his school. His jr. high is a No-Cut Sport school so if he wants to play, he'll get playing time. Sigh.

That is awesome. I am really curious about the sunglasses kid in the background. What IS that coming out of his mouth?
