Football Lesson #1

Posted on: May 19, 2012

Ethan started Football last night for the first time. The pre-season has begun, summer will be full of conditioning practices, and the season will begin in July.
I enrolled Ethan in gymnastics when he was two-years-old. All of his gym teachers predicted that he will be an amazing defense, line blocker for the UT Vols. I don’t know anything about football. But I researched the sport enough to know that beginning the sport too soon is not beneficial and that dance was the best pre-requisite. Thus, he learned modern classes for seven years in addition to swimming, baseball, and soccer.
After surviving a roller skating accident last winter with only deep tissue injury to his wrist, Ethan sat me down and told me that he was ready to play football… tackle football. I sighed. I consented. However, the girls and I have a LOT of learning to do.
LESSON #1: Ethan is wearing a football UNIFORM; not a costume!
May God keep you safe, Ethan!!!

A football player walked through my front door this morning!

NNNnnnnooooooo! They grow up too fast. Can’t believe he’s old enough to play already. Tell him I think he looks tough in his “costume”, LOL. Miss you guys!

Ethan loved your comment!!! Thanks. We miss you all!!!

Hey, I played football! Technically, I played end, guard, and tackle. I sat at the end of the bench, guarded the water cooler, and tackled anyone who came near it.

I didn’t know that! lol
