First Flag Football Game

So here is the anatomy of a flag football play when you're 4 and 5. One person snaps the ball. There is a "quarterback" that gets the snap, then he/she looks for someone to "handoff" to, whichever kid is paying attention at the time and actually holds his hands out is the one who gets the ball. The "receiver" then runs down the field (sometimes in the opposite direction) while the rest of his/her team stands still and watches him. Hilarious.

He was excited and cold in that order.

She was cold and cold in that order.

She gingerly hands it off to the kid who has his hands out

Carson in the black hat in hot pursuit. Where is Kate you ask? Standing on the sidelines with Mom declaring that she was done and ready for snacks:) One kid was cuddled up with his Mom for the majority of the game. That's just how things roll with the 4 and 5 football league. :)


God has said, "Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you." So we say with confidence, "The Lord is my helper. I will not be afraid. What can man do to me?" Hebrews 13:5-6
