My boys have been in flag football for a few years. When you strip away the equipment, tackling and four-day-a-week commitment from tackle football, you get flag football.
And it is a blast.
The kids congregate at our field every Sunday and sport their NFL inspired team jerseys. They play their hearts out for forty to fifty minutes, and they feel like football stars.
The practices are minimal, and the games are every Sunday. They run one after the other...oldest age group at 8am, next at 9am....and it continues. There are several families who have more than one child playing flag. They pack their coolers, bring their folding chairs and park themselves at the field all morning.
We are one of those families.
Hubby coaches both boys, and once we are at the field, we are there until my little maniac finishes up at noon. We eat from the snack bar, talk with friends, and watch our boys pass, catch, pull flags and hopefully score some TD's.
This past Sunday was our last week of flag, and while Hubby is ready for a small hiatus before tackle starts up, I'll be missing cheering on these boys...until August rolls around.
Happy Monday all. Hope yours is awesome.
