The Usual...

... with a birthday. Even though it was my son's birthday we still had other obligations so he just had to hang out until we could celebrate.
My oldest son had another football game. He loves football and has fun doing it but it was very discouraging because they don't let him play very much. I hope he doesn't lose the desire to want to play as a result of that.

Here he is blocking. He's always excited to tell me about it when he's given the chance to do something.

Here he is coming off the field, done for the day. Why do we spend so much time and money on this? Because he loves it and has fun despite not be given the chance to improve his game play.


Here's the birthday boy. Enjoying his birthday at the park next to the field.

And of course, the baby... who is quickly becoming not the baby. Sniffle Sniffle.

And then trapped again in the stroller while we watch all the other boys play football.

Happy belated birthday to that boy with wild hair! I have one too, so I know how it is!
As for your older one, tell him we all know his potential. He is a great kid, and I look forward to hearing more of his amazing football skills!

Change teams! That is my best advice. ;) Maybe his lack of playing will instill a desire to improve.

Deuce is so cute! Inara, too. I love that last picture.
