Rain or shine, we play flag football. The only show stopper is snow, but not cold temperatures.
It was SO cold and SO windy, but the game must go on.
In a stroke of genius, Keith decided to bring his tent made for one for Kellan to hunker down in.
Kellan was thrilled to be out of the elements with a movie on the iPad, complete with a Starbucks carrier iPad stand.
Not only was this a cold and stormy day, but it was a double hitter game day. They played one game at 1:00 and then a second game at 2:00. The second game against the Gorillas was a new challenge for Oliver as his friend from school, Ethan was on the other team. He had been talking about playing this game since they both discovered that they would play against each other.
Oliver is number 17 with the red shoes.
His friend is in the white jersey with the red hat.
By the second game, Kellan has some friends join him in the tent.
Just the day before, he discovered that two of his friends at Primrose were Chase's twin brother and sister. He was SO excited to hang out with Emerson and Evan. They were all excited to be in the tent where it was cozy, warm and out of the wind.
This picture makes me ooze with cuteness vibes.
The Gorillas proved to be our toughest opponents to date. It was a very exciting game to watch and it really pushed the Dragons to new levels.
It literally came down to the last 38 second and the last plays of the game. We were tied and the Cheetahs had the ball.
Coach Ben lined up the defense and we cheered them on.
Owen, Preston, Colby, Caleb and Chase were our last hope from losing our first game ever, in five seasons together (no pressure boys).
The Gorillas gave it four great attempts and our defense held strong. When the ref called game, it resulted in a tie.
We were SO proud of our boys. They played the toughest team yet, and they really stepped up to the challenge. Not only was it a tough team to play, it was the Dragons second game of the day. Our boys showed how focused, determined and resilient they really are. We couldn't' have been more proud of how they played and demonstrated true sportsmanship.
On the way to the car, Oliver said "Ethan and I were talking about who was going to win the game. I guess we were both wrong."
