This year, Jack is in 6th grade, which means something new to us as parents: Junior High Football. Morgan Mill is a small school, so most of the time we play 6-man games. In fact, one game we had scheduled for 11-man, we had to actually cancel because we had two or three players injured and couldn’t field a proper team! We were so proud of the effort Jack put in to improving in a new sport, and we really loved watching him grow and progress! These photos are from several different games, as I’m sure you’ll notice… Watch for number 35 in the purple jersey and number 71 in white–almost always in pink socks!
Jack was IMMEDIATELY good at following the ball… We had a bit of a learning curve at the beginning of the season, because… well… Jack’s nice. He was genuinely worried about hurting someone if he hit them!
Somewhere around week three, though, he figured something out…
I can’t believe how big this kid is! High School is right around the corner! (but don’t tell Chelsea!)
