Football season. The kids are pouring over Sports Illustrated (I censor) and SI Kids. They talk football constantly sounding like commentators in the booth on Monday night. Blaise got to see his first live professional game with Dad last night. The Lions lost, but who cares. (Who's surprised?) He got to be there! Every day they ask me how long till we begin flag football.
We're actually in the mist of soccer season. Kevin plays on the JV team in our homeschool league this year. He is working very hard and getting considerable playing time. But football is their real love. Their dad played, their uncles played. Their mom used to be a huge fan back when she had time to follow it. Now she prays that none of her children will actually have the opportunity to play tackle football because she wants them to be able to walk when they are 50.
Yet, the debates rage on about which QB has the best pass, which team will go to the Superbowl and whats wrong with the Lions.
