"Lo, Children Are An Heritage of the LORD: and the Fruit of the Womb is His Reward" - Psalm 127:3

The nine year old had his first "game" yesterday. It was more like a scrimmage. They have four teams - white, green, black and orange. So each team played against each other color for a short half - switching sides like you would at the quarter. I'm not sure how long each period was. It was hard to follow because there was no announcing, no scores posted, and they had two "games" going at once - one on each side of the field.
It was great experience though. My nine year old is number 71 on the white team.
They have an interesting pvc contraption for a drinking fountain.
The two year old was especially impressed with the water fountain. He kept telling me, "I need to play in the water!" or "I need to drink the water."
They even had cheerleaders. Our high school team doesn't even have cheerleaders - it never has.
This is the two year old warily watching the cheerleaders. He had to move onto the stairs to see them well. (He didn't really have to - he just thought he did.)
This was his reaction to them. ;)
"Take a picture of me!" the four year old said. He was most interested in drinking my diet pepsi, and kept telling us, "I need to go play football! I need a helmet." His brother let him wear the helmet after the game.
The nine year old was SO exhausted after the game, and thirsty and hungry too.
Papa and Bugga came to watch the game with us. When I was showing the boys the pictures from the day, the two year old very excitedly said, "That's MY Bugga!"

Cleaning and scrubbing can wait till tomorrow... For babies grow up, we've learned to our sorrow... So quiet down cobwebs, dust go to sleep... I'm rocking my baby and babies don't keep!!
