My sweet Evan has signed up for fall football and we're all really excited for him to play! This is the first time he's ever shown an interest in sports and I think it's going to be really good for him. He's come a long way this past year. He's taken a greater interest in water (and is much less afraid to be in water than he used to be). He's also learned to ride a bike and now he wants to play football. We are so excited to have found a wonderful team so close to home. As a bonus, no practices or games on Sundays! But it won't be easy. Pre-season practices will begin August 1 and will run Monday-Thursday. Once games begin, they still will practice three nights a week. Anyway, I took him out tonight to pick up his first pair of football cleats. To see him beam is such a treat because there is so little that really brings out that glow on his face. He tried on a couple of different sizes and ran back and forth in the store with them to try them out and then we settled on a pair. He proudly carried that box to the register and couldn't wait to own them. We still have a few things left to get him, but overall, he's ready. We will spend the next month out on the track trying to prepare him as much as possible!
