Backyard Football

Before the weather turned cold, and before the sheets of ice started raining we had a pretty mild weekend.  It gave us a chance to get outside and play in  much needed fresh air.  The big kids got footballs for Christmas this was a perfect day to try them out.  They were so happy to play.  Now none of us have a clue how to play football so I set up 3 boxes on one side of the lawn they stood on the other and tried to throw them in the different point boxes.

They threw them in the boxes, Gregory kicked them towards the boxes.

Faithy tried running it in.

After Smiley got hit by the ball he retreated to playing with his littlest sister.

She just sat there so these two were the easiest to get pictures of the others were running everywhere.

But after Gregory kept accidentally kicking the ball at his brothers, or accidentally throwing it at them.  They pulled out and I played.  I played kiss tackle   He tried to tackle me, and I would kiss him.  I would tackle him and then kiss him.  I don't think he was having any fun playing with mom ;0
