This post is going to be a brief one. It is centered on sports. Sports for the boys. Sports scare me with potential injuries. Therefore, I have been a little lazy in signing them up for the more aggressive ones. The boys played soccer from the ages of three to five. They were also in a small karate class for a year. As they have grown I have been trying to determine which sports to expose them to for active involvement. They just finished up flag football this past fall. Yes, flag football. Of course one of them wants to play touch football, but I am not ready. I don’t know if I will ever be ready for that. I accidentally missed registration for Little League this spring and have been putting off signing them up for karate again. I don’t want a ball to accidentally hit them in the face, or another child kicking them in the teeth, or being tackled by a kid 100 lbs. heavier with 4 or 5 years more experience.
I know I will have to bite the bullet and get them involved. It is so hard to agree willingly to cringe and cover my face for the next 10 – 15 years, but I will do it. My poor nerves!
More to come….
