This August we added another task to the list.....football....yes apparently the boys wore us (me) down to let them try football. In the four years that the boys have been home I have never, ever seen Eli tired. The third night into practice, he came home, cleaned up, flopped on the couch and sat there. I asked him if he was tired. His response, "Yes. Football does that to me."
I honestly think the kid has never truly experienced tired. He is just wired to go and go and go. Lucas is absolutely absorbing everything football. We had told their coach that their knowledge of football was limited and they'd have their work cut out for them trying to explain everything. We've been so lucky not only with this sport but most every one the boys are involved in, to have coaches who will go above and beyond trying to explain and figure out ways for the boys to understand the sport. It's one of those areas that most people don't realize that they weren't aware of until 4 years ago.
Either way I believe football has now been added to the August calendar and I think we have one day open that we might be able to squeeze that school shopping in.
