Random day before Friday....

So,
Jared informed me that his name

and the word
undies
should NEVER again be mentioned together in the same sentence..
particularly never again on my blog...


slightly mortified that one....
(SORRY J! my bad...)

Colten and Jack started playing flag football this week.
Jack didn't really want to play flag....he wanted to play tackle....
and only tackle....
but you have to be seven.... so he's playing flag....
and loving it...
Colten on the other hand is just playing because I thought he might like it...
So, we have no real flag football experience.
Jared played tackle for a season...
hated it....
we moved on.

Colin is out of town this week,
so it's just me....
I obviously didn't do the best job explaining the sport....
We're watching Jack play,
and Coley looks at me...
and says "Huh...well....I didn't know you threw the ball in flag"...
"What?!?" I say..
"I didn't realize there WAS a ball in flag football....I thought there was only a flag." he says....
OH Yeah....my kid only yesterday realized that there was a FOOTBALL involved in flag FOOTBALL....
uh-huh....
should be a memorable season.
Yeah, he thought you just carried a flag like the ball...
That one is funny.
I did also hear "Mom...I forgot my glove!" from Jack, as we were walking to the field....
because it's the same place they had baseball..
and for a moment I think he completely forgot what sport he was playing....
nice...
My boys will be out there w/ baseball gloves trying to catch flags that are being thrown...
or something along those lines...

I have to work on some circle journals this weekend...
and some VERY belated birthday love.
I hate missing birthdays on peas...but sometimes I just can't get it done...even when I REALLY want to....
best of intentions....
really.

I think I've played that game. The flag doesn't go very far when you throw it though.
