The Diaries of a Flag Football Experience

Posted by Page Phelps | | Posted On Saturday, September 29, 2012 at 6:12 PM

This is our first experience with any organized sport other than swimming and it has been a terrific experience.

I have so enjoyed watching our boys learn how to play flag football.  And I have enjoyed reconnecting with some old students and co-workers and friends.  The boys are really enjoying themselves.  And today when we were finished Hezekiah came over and smiled and he said, "I played my first game!"  It was so adorable and I will let you in why it was so adorable in a minute.  

First let me tell you about our resident touchdown scorer..........his name is Eli!  He scored a couple touchdowns today in his first flag football game.  He is so cute catching that ball and running with that huge orange mouth guard in his mouth. 

Let me in on another thing I enjoy and love about ROAR, the time the kids get to spend in prayer and a time of devotion.  Not only reflecting on the sport, but time to reflect upon God. 

Now let's look at our next resident flag football player, Hezekiah.  He played offense and defense today.  He also rearranged orange cones, wandered off away from all other team mates, walked over to La La land, and stayed focused most of the time while he was on the field.  The time off the field, let's just say he had other things and doings on his mind.  All in all, the last picture here kind of sums up his day.  Oh, he is so cute!  He cracks me up..........especially when he ends his day with a huge smile and says with excitement, "I just played my first game!"  It's hard not to love him!  

We are certainly blessed to live near the wonderful ministry of ROAR Sports at Covenant Presbyterian Church.
