In a Blaze of Glory

.

Jack loves football. It has always been surprising to both Jared and I. Jared played football, and hated it, and me? Well, that should be obvious. Nonetheless, Jack loves it. Such a cute kid, don't you think?

So, Monday night was Jack's last football game of the season. He was very excited, yet a little sad and sentimental because his new school does not have a football program, and the community ed program only goes through 6th grade. I was feeling little big guilty for denying him his masculine hobby.

I was, unfortunately, watching Spencer and Ethan in the school cafeteria do Tae Kwon Do while Jared and Olivia were on the field watching Jack. It was the 4th quarter and the coach gave Jack the ball. He made a FANTASTIC 50 yard run before being tackled!! What a star Jack!

Then he fell.

Then this.

Way to go out in a Blaze of Glory my boy, way to Go!

Ps. He says he doesn't want to play football anymore.

Oh No! Even the x-ray looks painful. It's too bad that a broken arm is what it takes to convince him that football is a dangerous sport. I hope my kids don't want to play. I am going to have to start working on a way to let them down easy.

Ok, it does make me feel a little queasy seeing that XRay.

Poor guy! (Is it just the picture or does he have some big feet?)

It still makes me sick to look at the x-ray. What an adventure for you all (: I made Cord look at the x-ray and he just started to shutter.

Oh! Poor Jack! OUCH! I hope he's soaking up the attention for now. He deserves it!

OH my goodness. You are a crazy man Jack! WOW! We hope you are doing better. Wish we could sign the cast.... maybe you could put our names on it by proxy! Get well soon!

Good way to end the season Jack. I am sure he will be back. I love football! But deep down in my motherly heart I hope my boys don't play either :)
