The boys are officially coaching their very own flag football team this Fall. Last spring they guest coached a team, but this little Giants team is all theirs. They held there first practice this morning and from all accounts they think they have a pretty good team. I'm happy they wanted do this and I think it will be really good for them.
Dylan has a smile on his face after another practice. That's a good sign. The boys are getting extremely lucky with the weather lately. It's 10 degrees cooler than normal with low dew points and it looks to stay that way for the next week. They could be dealing with jungle heat and humidity this time of year.
The boys both started on offense and defense in their first tackle football game ( scrimmage). They played well but the team was not firing on all cylinders. More practice and another scrimmage next week. They will get there.
I don't remember these coming up in this spot before. Could be the extremely wet August we are having. A fan motor burned out on our 7 year old HVAC system on Friday. The service company got here fast, but.... the part won't be here till Monday. It's been a warm couple nights with hopefully just one to go.
The boys have graduated to helmets on Tuesday and shoulder pads on Thursday. Full contact this weekend and a scrimmage next week will get them fully indoctrinated in tackle football. They both seem to love it and aren't that concerned about the coming bumps and bruises that come with high speed collisions.
We kept pretty busy during Mae and Mom's visit despite a drenching rain on Monday. Mt Vernon, laser tag, Dunkirk, Freedom House and Top Golf were all good even if we weren't able to get the African American Museum.
Dylan seems to be enjoying the Valium before his eye surgery. Nicole is rocking a sexy white jump suit. I got nothin..
He should be done by now, we are waiting for the doctor to come out and update us.
The boys did some extra work under the direction of Cory tonight. Freshman football is still only a couple times a week right now so Cory got a half dozen kids together for an extra workout. They need it after doing a bunch of nothing all day.
