Football fans

Football season has begun, and both boys seem to enjoy the games.

Although you probably couldn't tell by this picture. Little Elvis is so expressive! I forget why he was fussing. This is typically how the backseat of the car looks -- Little Elvis fussing (and me fussing right back) while Baby Plum sucks his thumb and takes it all in.

About 2 minutes later, if that. Oh to be little again, and get over my anger so quickly.

They get to play with other kids at the football games and usually have a blast. They also usually sleep so well.

At the last game, Baby Plum kept running up and hugging Little Elvis from behind. Little Elvis, being the affectionate child that he is, had no problem with this. I wish I had my camera handy for these moments. But they wouldn't last long enough for me to pull it out, turn it on and wait for it to be ready to take a picture.

It's great the way sports can do this to us humans. I mean, even if you don't care about the game, just the noise of the crowd, the stomping feet, deafening cheering, the hushed tension in the air... ah! It's so exciting and fulfilling and really, generally affirmative. No wonder kids love it!

We've never taken the boys to a game of any kind. But this post reminds me how fun it can be; and makes me think we need to get on with it.
