FUTEbol

That's how Patrick says football.  With some sort of sophisticated foreign accent.

And here's my son, Matthew, that you never knew existed because he hates getting his picture taken in a bad way.
Just like me.

But I got this one while he was famished, right before practice.

It was a beautiful day so I thought we'd go and watch is practice for awhile.  Plus Mr. Two Year Old who worships the ground Matthew walks on, insisted.  Like he does everytime.


Matt loves this sport and has blossomed into a leadership position.  Here's a shy 3rd child, who calls plays, and runs the ball.
I'm impressed.
He's #32.

  1. Love the pics! I hadn't scrolled down far enough on the photo of Matthew eating, and it looked like her was wearing SUPER furry shoes. Then I saw the rest of the dog. :)

  2. My nextdoor neighbor has three boys, and the older 2 play football at the high school my hubby teaches at. Last season, one broke his leg and the other broke his arm. So I think my boys will be sticking with soccer for a while ;) I'm glad your Matthew found something he enjoys and he's good at!!

    Way to go Matthew....my nephew plays "futeball" in Texas. They are very serious about their futeball there.

  8. Enjoyed this post and the pictures, I have one cute ten year old boy who doesn't make the blog much either because of his refusal to take pictures. It's nice that he's showing some leadership on the field. Cute boys!
