A little football

We bit the bullet and let K play tackle football this year. He's played flag football for the past two years and loves it. There's just something about putting those pads on, though! We found out that E could cheer for his team, so that settled it. They both are having so much fun!

Here are some pics from last week's game:

K is the starting quarterback for his team.

He passed the ball for one touchdown and ran for an extra point in this jamboree game.

He's the one all the way to the left.

E loves cheering. She's only 6 but I can really tell she's getting better and better with her cheers, jumps and stunts.

This guy can't wait until he can play "puetbaw" too!

Oh and we got a dog. His name is Topher. Some friends of ours have had him for about 5 years. They are adopting an older child from Ethiopia and aren't sure how he would do with a dog. They were looking for a family for Topher and we are it.

I admit that I wasn't super excited about having a dog again after our last experience with one, but Topher has been wonderful! He's a Lhasa apso and he's such a good dog.... and he's trained- Halelujah! Anyway, the kids just love him to death and are doing their part to take care of him. It's nice to have him a part of our family!
