J is old enough for tackle football this season.  He desparately wants to play.  So, Andy and Leo are giving him some conditioning exercises and some coaching.

The death crawl is a nightly exercise.

Leo takes his coaching duties seriously, can’t you tell!

I, of course, am excused from these activities because I’ve got a broken shoulder.

It is amazing to watch how J is growing.  The bones from his knee to his ankle is getting long and man like.  And he stand in poses that are not very little boy anymore.  The other day I saw him leaning against the car, with his legs stretched out in front of him and his ankles crossed.  I can see the man he will be!  Amazing!

All this football is wonderful – I love the sport.

Sorry the photos were kind of out of focus.  It was late in the evening, and I really didn’t have enough light, so the apeture was too wide for the activity.  But I think you get the idea.

    While it is always amazing, watching your children grow and change, watching them grow into the person that you will view as a young adult is something that is unbelievable. When I hug my 17yr old son, I feel his muscles and think..oh my, he is almost a man! Just wait until they have to start shaving…

  2. I know what you mean…they do grow so fast! Love the football pics.

  3. I bet all that football makes Grandpa Gary very proud!!!
