More football!!!!

We had our first scrimmage last night. It was awesome!!! I didn't realize how excited I would get about football. Practices suck.....and thankfully the conditioning part is over now. But watching them actually get out there against another team is really cool. All the boys hard work has really paid off. They were awesome and did alot better than I was expecting. Oh and one more thing......We had weigh-in's this week. And Jackson has lost 10lbs from playing football!!! I was shocked, Jackson was really proud of himself though.

Ok, back to the scrimmage. When Jackson got up on that line across from a kid who I swear was big enough to be in 10th grade, I was really nervous. But more importantly, I was so excited to see Jax hit him! Is that wrong? Oh well! I would like to see that kids drivers license and birth certificate though, ha ha......he was huge!!! Anyway, Jax got knocked to the ground the first 2 plays, but he got right back up and kept going. And then he seemed to find his groove and held his own for the rest of the game. I was really proud of him. Our first game is on Saturday.....I CAN'T WAIT!!!! A much needed Gatorade break!!!!
I love this pic. It will be great for the scrapbook. I just thought it was so cute to see him sitting there waiting to go into the game.
