Go Toro's!

If you read this, you already know what a complete freak I am about this time of year. I LOVE watching my boy play football, and Toro Camp officially gets my blood pumping. This year is no different. We are spending the week up at football camp, which by some stroke of convenient luck is also where my parents live! Right now I am sitting at my computer next to an open window listening to thunder rolling, a cool breeze and some wonderful raindrops. What a nice change!

So, remember when our kids were young, and we spent years trying to implement the art of sharing? I'm not sure at exactly what point parenting took such a complete and drastic change, but today I found myself screaming "USE YOUR KNEE! STEP ON HIM! DON'T LET HIM UP! DON'T LET GO!" These pictures were right before my big boy took things into his own hands (or skull) and head-butted this kid three times all in the name of competition. Call me sick, but rarely has an occasion made me so dang proud.

I'm starting to see the allure in football. We watched Jasper at his first practice yesterday, and it was so fun! Watching a bunch of 8 and 9 year olds "drop and give me 5" was so cool. My poor dad missed out on all of that.
