An Overtime Football Game, and NFL Punt Pass and Kick Competition
Saturday morning we had another football game. Our son's white team played the orange team. It was an exciting game.
We were a bit worried when on the opening play, the orange team ran in for a touchdown. But on the next play, our team did the same. It was quite a high-scoring game.
It was also the first game my husband was able to make it to. We had quite the cheering section. Papa and Bugga were there too, and our two younger boys. Grandpa headed out to see my little niece the day before. We had a great visit while he was here and he was a huge help in the move. The boys all miss him now, and the four year old is convinced he is in the bathroom ... or sleeping downstairs... or at the other house ;)
Anyway, the game went into overtime and the other team got the ball first. Our line held them though, and then when it was their turn they managed to score. They were very excited.
We ran out for a quick lunch then back to the field for the NFL Punt Pass and Kick competition.
I don't think he won any of the categories because it's just his first year in football, but he did remarkably well considering we didn't practice for it or anything. We are supposed to find out results later.
**Edited: Found out today he was 5th out of 12 competitors, so not too bad. Passing killed him. He was 3rd in kicking and punting!

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!!
