THIS is the face of one happy boy. Yesterday he was drafted to play with a football team - complete with full gear - helmet, pads, pants...and cup ;) The shoulder pads have hardly come off, but thank goodness I got the rest of it away from him! And YES - I said drafted! Believe it or not for our football program, the kids go through a draft so that everyone has a chance to pick from certain age brackets/sizes/weights, etc. Its a way to make it fair for all teams, but it felt really odd to hear his name called and that he had been drafted for such and such team.
Anyhow. This boy is very, very happy. That is until tomorrow.
Tomorrow is the first day of school.
Well, bud - you can't have it all.
