This post is not about the upcoming NFL season. In fact, I have not watched football on TV for years, maybe even decades.
Neil came home last week and told me he would like to play football for his school. The boys have been wanting to play sports for a few years but with Kevin gone so much and the other things they were already a part of I made the decision that I could not add sports onto our already hectic life. I promised them that when we moved, we would let them start to play sports. Neil is really the only one interested and so we begin the journey.
What a pain getting your kid enrolled in sports can be! I spent over 3 hours waiting to get him a physical that took all of 10 minutes! And while the school will provide the major equipment, we have to spend a bit of money to get the personal items.
I am looking forward to supporting him but I will admit this a new thing for our family. We have always supported our kids in any activity they have done, but sports and bleachers and cheering on the sidelines is new. I look forward to the new adventure.
Michael will be supporting football, so we'll be keeping up with his crazy schedule too as he is part of the Marching Band.
So I ask again...are you ready for some football??
