I was dreading this sport. Really dreading it! But I turned out loving it. It was intense and full of action. I was really quite sad to see it end.
Carter's little team really had a awesome year. It was fun to see them learn and grow as a team. We're still teaching Carter that it's not all about the person making the touchdowns but about the team that's helping "that guy" make those points.
Their league had 3 teams that had tied at the end of the season and had to have a late night quick play off. Each team got a chance at the 5 yard line to make a touchdown. Carter's team ruled out of the 3 teams and made it to the spot of going into play offs. They we're pretty excited, so were the parents. Especially the dads!
Look at this gorgeous weather. Doesn't it scream FOOTBALL?!
Another victorious game that sent them into the actual play off game for the tittle of 1st or 2nd! They were pretty pumped!
The championship game day came and we woke up to this! Our first storm and snowfall of the season. And it was a big one!
We all bundled up and headed out to South Jordan. First we had to make a stop or two to find Dad the right winter apparel.
The team and couches were ready for this weather. They had lots of hot chocolate, hot potatoes (to keep their hands warm), and a nice warm tent with generators pumping out the heat! (it's big time folks)
It was a really rough game. Poor boys really couldn't get anywhere in all that snow. They were very frustrated.
They ended up losing by one touchdown. But they still managed to have good attitudes and a fun time.
His team loved getting pumped up by having some music played before and during half time. At this particular game the parent running the music chose Gangam Style. What kid doesn't know that dance? There sure was some dancing going on out on the field that day. Let's not confuse who's kid was the show stopper though. While most of the kids stopped dancing after about 20 seconds, not our son. He finished that gangam style with grace! It was perfect! No need for dance lessons for this kid.
I've realized something about Carter. He needs to be involved in a sport all the time. He needs to burn his energy and is such a easier person to be around when he's burned it off!
It makes me sad to see Carter grow up. I really need to bottle up all these memories so they can last forever! BOYS RULE!
