flag footballers!

 Okay, so none of these pictures are great, but I had to document Kade and Ky's first season of flag football!  This fall they played six weeks of flag football as part of the Orange Tigers team.  Based on the first week, which was a football clinic/practice, I wasn't sure we were going to see much of anything that resembled football from the 5-7 year olds.  But, over the next few weeks we saw lots of good running, passing, "tackling," a few interceptions, some good catches, blocking, and plenty of touchdowns!  Kade and Ky each scored a couple of touchdowns themselves.  Oh, and I can't forget about the awesome touchdown dances the boys gave us, as well as some great hip bumps!  It was so much fun to watch!
 Kade's favorite sport is absolutely football!  In fact, he did not want to mess with this flag football stuff, and just wanted to go straight to tackle football.  But he had a great time, and I think he learned a lot about actually playing a game of football.  Both the boys took the games very seriously and always did their best!
And, which team won the championship?  The Orange Tigers, that's who!!  Kade and Ky were so proud to be part of the winning team!  And Mom and Dad are pretty proud of them too!

Ky's proud daddy made this video of his touchdown, along with some awesome hip bump action!
