So, just to clarify, I am having so much fun coaching Michael’s football team! Oh my word. I love it. Michael thinks I get too excited. Michael is very, very reserved – except for when he’s not.
Up. Down. Up. Down. Up. Down. Up. Down.
Yesterday, Michael got the opportunity to play wide receiver. He’s been playing center when he is on offense and is great at snapping the ball, but the job is a little boring in flag football. He’s been wanting to run the ball and this was his first chance to show the coaches what he can do. (What Michael can do is always contingent on whether he is thinking about football or whether he is mentally cataloging dinosaurs into the Triassic, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods.)
The quarterback (in red) threw the ball to Michael.
Michael was ready.
He caught it and turned away from the kid who was trying to block him…
…and he ran it all the way in! He got past three kids trying to pull his flags! And then he did it again! Michael thought it was really cool. 🙂 Now he says football is “probably” his sport.
