Are you ready for some football?

I'm happy to say that I am no longer a soccer mom. Nope, this year I will be a "football mom" instead. Kobe just started his first year of flag football. He'd been wanting to play for the past few years but we've usually always limited them to just one activity at a time (Even though I only have two kids, I still don't have the time or the patience to shuttle them around town to a million activities in true soccer-mom style.)

Anyway, the good news is that Kobe seems to like it so far. He's apparently a good blocker because the coach has him in that position a lot (either that or you just automatically get to be the blocker when you are one of the two biggest kids on the team :)

Today, they played against a bunch of kids from Kobe's b-ball team last year--which is pretty much made up of all Polynesian kids. Kobe had a fun time playing against his friends and even asked if we could sign him up to be on their team next time. Who cares about school boundaries--we'll apparently be going the free agent route next year.

PS--It was hard to post about football after BYU's game tonight. Maybe there's room for one more on the team...
