Warning… there are WAY too many pictures in this post.
Well, the athletic director from the Y replied perfectly to my email and he wanted Robert put back on the team that he was comfortable on… so we were back to being pirates. When I got home that night and told Robert he jumped into my arms and said, “Thank you Mama!” Little did I know how much it really meant to him.
Jim was in Amarillo last week so he missed the first game and the practice/picture night. The first game was an adventure. Robert didn’t understand that when they play a game there is only one ball and they all chase it. When he finally got that, he had a really good time.
He was pretty aggressive at times and we had to have him tone down the hips and elbows a bit. He and a girl from the other team tussled a bit. At one point in the game he came running over to me (taking pictures in the end zone) and I told him the ball was the other way and he said, “I know Momma but I need to give you a hug.” My heart melted, I hugged him and sent him on his way.
Since pictures were late they have their last game this Wednesday and I’m bummed that I can’t be there but I had a prior commitment. I’m sure Daddy will give me a full report when I get home.
