It must be spring, the boys are back together again.
The boys of the Dragons, that is.
We weren't sure if the team would be back since they were moving the from 4-5 year old league to the 6-7 year old league, but, they are!
Practically the whole team is here, plus a few new players. We are all SO Excited!!
The grass may still be dormant and having a hard time waking up, but the Dragons are on fire and ready for another season.

The team was all very attentive and kept their eye on the ball.
The hikes are under the legs this season and not to the side. I guess when you're in the 6-7 year old league, your legs are long enough for the ball to go under and not around them.

Colby, Owen and Oliver.
(I missed a photo of the 3-O's running to the field: Oliver, Owen and Owen. Next time!)
Owen's concentration was fierce.
Owen was so focused, that he ran the ball from one end of the field to the other.
Oliver only had possession of the ball once this game and they had his number, four to one.
There was no surviving this cluster without a flag pull.
He was bummed that he didn't get another try, but we have many more weeks to go.
Eye on the Prize!
This may have been one of the funniest candid moments. I'm so glad that Keith and I noticed this happening before it was over. Yes, that's Oliver and Owen conversing with the ref.
It's a good thing, someones got to make sure that the clock is right.
"3 minutes of play left!" yelled the ref and Oliver confirmed.
The Dragons pulled out a narrow win. The 6-7 year olds are a tougher crowd, as we would expect, especially since most of our team is six. The other team gave the Dragons a run for their money. It's going to be a GREAT season!!
Who says we have to wait until fall (ok, August) for football?
