Today we attended Quinlan’s first football game. Yes, fifth graders can play football, and it seems like 5th graders made up half of the team. For some reason, Ten Sleep can’t seem to field a high school football team. We have the kids, but no interest, which is sad. My boys really enjoyed playing football, even when they had to switch to 6 man. With a good middle school team, they’re hoping the interest will continue on to higher grades.
See that little number 25? I know. Right?
He had worked himself into a nervous lather… feeling nauseous and upset. With some gentle encouragement and time… he finally ran a few plays and found some confidence and fun.
With his own cheering crowd to back him up… it was great to see him grin and flash a thumbs up!
He had a great time in the end.
