A Foster is playing Football!!

and NO, I do not mean "futball" (which Aaron will be playing again this year so Saturdays will be fun)...I mean American Football.

Break out the Bubble Wrap!! :)

Russell has decided he wanted to try his hand at playing Football, instead of playing soccer again this season. At SDS the 1st and 2nd graders play on blended teams and the 1st grade year is more of the fundamental learning year. The games will be 8-on-8 and since there are already a lot of 2nd graders on the team game time play for the 1st graders will be limited. Which is why I have no problem letting R. play this year. 

So no Bubble Wrap required.  :)

Here are a few pictures Jason shot at R's first practice. R. was playing catch up with the others, as he missed the first week of "Conditioning", but he seemed to get the hang of it...or at least the hang of the "attitude."  :)

The team got their pads and helmet today...he wore it all the way home.
(Does anyone else have the song from Varsity Blue playing in their heads right now? Durn football movies and their slow motion action shot music.)


  1. Awesome. Can't wait to talk to him and let him know how cool this is!

  2. Thanks for the call, Uncle Josh! He talked about that on the way to practice and I told him that you use to play when you were little. Do you have any pictures I can show him?
