Our family loves football so we look forward to the season each year! Both of my sons played in leagues and we enjoy watching games whether live from the field or on television. Last year my youngest was unable to play due to surgery so we are super excited that he’s able to play again this year.

We had our first flag football game yesterday and they did well. My son mainly played center position but he was also asked to step in for his quarterback for a few plays while the quarterback was out during an injury timeout. He enjoyed trying new positions – it was a nice challenge for him. Sports is a wonderful way to not only stay active and fit, but it also builds sportsmanship character – teamwork, healthy competition, working hard, supporting each other, celebrating victories, learning from loses, setting goals, respecting each other and officials, attitude, and having fun. It truly develops a whole and balanced mindset for life. I’m so thankful he is healthy enough to continue his sports and enjoys playing in the leagues, whether it is football, soccer or basketball.

These are a few photos from our first game. We look forward to the rest of the season!
