First Grade + Football

I can't believe Landon is in FIRST grade. It's been a little bit of an adjustment to all-day school, he's a trooper and has done just fine. He chose to be an "early bird" at school - meaning he goes from 7:55-2:15. I had serious doubts about it, but he has handled it like a champ - he gets up without complaining and is always on time. The early schedule allows Jeff to take him a good portion of the time, too, which is fun for both of them. I love asking the boys questions before the year starts to hear their answers. Landon said he wants to be a football player when he grows up, his favorite color is red (no surprise there), and that his favorite things are playing outside, his friends and playing Madden (football video game).

This fall Landon also started playing football! We said we'd NEVER let our kids play ... but Landon begged and begged, so we finally relented. And it's been a really good experience for him. It's hard work, and they demand a lot from the boys, but he's loved every single second of it so far. Go Skyridge Falcons!
