Touchdown

In the past two weeks, Evan has fallen in love with football. It all started a few Sundays ago when I took him downstairs after his nap and Bryan was watching a game. Since then, he can't get enough. Luckily, Bryan told me that we have a 24-hour football channel on cable. Who knew?

Today, we were watching a 2007 game between Southern Florida University and Rutgers when Evan went and got Bryan's bike helmet and handed me mine and insisted we wear them while playing football. He also turned his toy basket into the end zone.

As I was hiking him the ball during one of our many indoor football games today, I caught a glimpse of myself in the mirror, bike helmet and all, and thought, "If a meteorite hit the earth right now and years later archaeologists were unearthing our remains, they would never figure out what we were doing right this minute."

Then, I hiked Evan the ball in time to turn around and catch his pass and run for a touchdown at the opposite end of the family room. Overall, it was a pretty good day.

Caleb has always been fascinated with football too. Wait until he chooses a team to get stuck on. Caleb's is the Giants for some reason and no-one can beat them..even if they loose. Good Luck and it sounds like fun at your house!
