football.

It's that time again... we spent the day at football scrimmages.

30 minute drive there, 2 hours for Jonah's scrimmage, a 1 hour break then 2 hours for Caleb's game, then the drive home. long day.

Jonah is the "center" on his team. To me that means the kid that hikes the ball.



Caleb is bottom right, the "defensive end". To me that means the kid that stands up.



You know the kid out on the field that dances around like no one is watching?

that's Caleb.



Caleb and his buddy Tramon have the same gap in the teeth, missing the same tooth! Not sure why this humors me so, but it does.

I think it will be fun to have this pic to show them when they are "cool" in high school :)



Jonah is little, probaly close if not the smallest on his team...





but he's feisty...



getting tips from my dad, gpa d...



he came over to say hi to lil sis (do ya love her bed head hair she has going on?)...



Ryan is their coach...



Eden wore the cheer outfit that Aunt Jen made for Tessa a couple of years ago. It's a little big but still so cute... and boy does Eden love her grandpa!



Ryan got Eden to snooze...



We came home and I laid down for a quick nap and woke up 6 HOURS later. Is that still considered a nap?

I woke up to a quiet house... Ryan had fed the kids, put them to bed, cleaned out my 4 (yes 4!) junk drawers, organized the pantry and mowed the yard!

So now I'm wide awake, at 10:30 at night :)

I also sat with my right side to the sun a little too long, so I have a red/tanned right arm and a normal left arm... nice.

I love football season- I wouldv'e made a great "football mom". :) I do have cheerleaders though, so I still get to go to the games. Shaye and Mackie are trying soccer this Fall- their little cleats are the cutest things ever.

I have a soft spot in my heart for little boy football players (and Daddy coaches)!

Eldest plays both offense and defense. On offense he's the receiver, which to me, means he's on the end and stands and then catches the ball thrown from the QB. On defense he's safety, which to me, means he's the last one back.
