Itty Bitty Football

Any of you who have spoken with EJ lately knows he is doing football. He has been so excited he has told everyone, Even strangers! Well the first day of football finally came and he was so excited he could hardly stand it. He insisted on wearing his football player Halloween costume (from last year), I had to talk him out of wearing his shoulder pads and cleats. He is so cute.
I love watching him in classes and activities. If you know EJ you know he is all boy, and usually all over the place. But, when he is in a structured environment he is one of the most focused kids I have seen. It really is amazing. He will sit and listen and do whatever they ask. And he does really well. Of course I am probably a bit of a biased Mommy, but who isn't?
Itty Bitty Football is a great program they have through the cities teaching all the basic fundamentals. They go to different stations and practice passing, catching, kicking, running, etc.
After he was done he came over and said how awesome football was, and that his favorite parts were throwing, kicking, scoring the touchdown, and running. (pretty much everything!) We have football all month so I am sure I will have a few more pics to post.
We were leaving and he says to me "why does everyone say my football clothes are cute? Don't they know football players are tough not cute!" I just said because he looked so good in his uniform. He said then it was OK to say he was cute! LOL he cracks me up!

How cute is this pic! I could just squeeze him.

Look at that extension! Do we have a kicker on our hands?

By his team sign. The Packers. He wished he was a Cowboy :(

Running in his touchdown! He thought he was pretty tough!

Maybe a QB?

I love Itty Bitty Ball at the Legacy Center. Both of my older boys have gone through and done all the sports and LOVED it. Basketball was Justin's favorite and Football was Ryan's favorite. I can't wait to do it with my next two sons when they are old enough. However, I'm not rushing them. In fact I'm trying to hold on to Joshua's babyhood. He is growing way to quickly. You got some cute pictures of E.J., I love the one of him kicking the ball. What great form!
