FLAG FOOTBALL

The school my kids go to is in it's third year, and each year, the amount of students have doubled! What a blessing, right? And now since they have more Junior High boys, they were able to start a flag football team! It's a brand new team, and they only had a chance to play three games this year. But, they did so well, considering! They are getting ready to start basketball practice next week, and the boys play so well together. I'm looking forward to that! They all have such great attitudes!!

Here's a picture of some of the boys at their first game! That's my son on the far right in the back row!

Awww How wonderful! I remember when my son use to do that, but now he's married, and has a son of his own, and a daughter. ~hehe~ Glad you like my meme. Yes, I really hope you join us. Don't worry about last week friday. There were a few of us that were doing it anyway! Love those oldies! PASS THE WORD ABOUT MY MONDAY'S MUSIC MOVES ME. IT'S HALLOWEEN WEEK!

Doesn't it just give your mommy heart some peace knowing that everyone on your children's team play well together? :) So happy to hear that the school is growing... and it's great that your children are going to be part of that "growth," too. =)

Great to see a post from you again Alicia...seems we have been missing each other in blogland. ;-) Great to hear that your kids are enjoying their new chapter with school as well.

I enjoyed a game of flag football with my nephews recently. So much better than all that hitting and tackling stuff. ;) Glad your boys are enjoying the sport too.

It is always so nice when a team plays well together. It makes the experience, win or lose so much more fun!!

Hey girl! I haven't been by in forever. Sorry! Life is sooo busy these days. I have so much I want to get done before my baby gets here and only so much energy, so things like keeping up with blogs (my own included!) seem to fall by the wayside. :(

Question though: I thought you home-school your kids? Maybe I was wrong. Oops!
