The season is finally winding down. We have 2 events left, trophy ceremony and Round One (fun day). This was an intense season of football. They started practicing in September. The first 2 weeks they practiced every night for 2 hours. Jason was gone during the first few weeks and I thought it was going to kill us, I had little kids getting sick at practices and trying to keep them happy for 2 hours. Towards the end of the first weeks Jayce wanted to quit,. I talked him into waiting until Jason was home so he could help him out. I could only kind of help. The couch cushion was a great tackling dummy (the big one with a little elbow in it!). It helped a little until Jason was home.
Jayce did really well for a month or so, he was enjoying the games and practices. Then suddenly he was sour again and we struggled with practices off and on until the last 2 weeks of the season when he really wanted to quit. He decided to hang in there for $50 (no complaining was required). Towards the end of the season he was playing for almost every offensive play. He had come along way. Their team is ranked #1 in the league for his division. It is always fun to be on the winning team. Our team won every game except the 2 we tied.
At his teams banquet he was given the award for Biggest Heart. I can't think of a better award to win for an athlete. They commented that they thought he was going to quit and hung in there and that he never cried (I think all of the other boys cried at least once). You should see his arms, he is getting way to big.
