When we play.... we play hard

This Fall we were busy, busy, busy with sports.  And when I say busy I mean busy.   We were either at a game or a practice 5 days a week.  This was the first year we had three of the kids in sports.  Did I mention we were busy??

This year was Brandon's second year playing flag football.  Brandon LOVES playing football and I think he would play it year round if he could.  This year he played on both offence and defensive lines.  There were even a couple of games where he was able to try his hand at quarterback.  Brandon had a hand full of sacks and some defence saving flag pulls.  Spencer was also able to help out as the offensive coach.  This was Spencer's first time ever doing this, and he did a great job. 

In this picture Brandon is #45.

This year was Emily's  4th year playing soccer.  She played in the U10 league and it was her first year where they actually have refs and keep score.  I would have to say this was the best year of soccer so far.  It was an exciting season and they just had a great team.  Emily had a hand full of goals and a good number of assists as well.  He team made it to the semi-finals only to unfortunately loose in over time.  Maybe next year.

This was Aubrey's 1st year playing soccer.  It's been a little while since we were back in the "swarm of bee's phase" with soccer.  I call it this because everyone swarms around the ball trying to kick it like a bunch of bees.  The team had a tough season as everyone was a first time player but one, and we weren't the most aggressive of groups.  It's a learning process though.  By the end of the season I think they we starting to get they hang of it.  Maybe next year it will be even better, although Aubrey keeps saying she wants to be a cheerleader so we shall see.  Aubrey was able to score 2 or 3 goals and made a lot of good kicks. 

Like I said it was a fun Fall season of sports.  Yes we were busy, but it wouldn't have been as fun if I couldn't watch all my kids in their games.  What's next?  BASKETBALL starting at the end of next month.  Here we go again!
