Fall Football (?!?)

I've never been a huge fan of football. But once I had boys (built very much like football players!)  I became an avid football-avoider. My thinking went something like maybe if I pretend that football doesn't exist, they'll never discover it or never think it's some great thing and  never have any interest in playing... Try clothes shopping for little boys while avoiding anything football related - it takes a definite conscious effort, which I ridiculously have made :)

Yet somehow I heard Owen answering Ellie's request to watch her climb a tree this afternoon with this- "First I have to play football with Mommy!"  And he is one cute little football playing buddy.

I think I'm going to have to find a new keep-my-boys-football-free strategy.
