This right here seems to be all that Joshua is consumed with these days! Football! He always has one in his hands and he is constantly wanting someone to throw with him. For Christmas this year, all he wants is the "real" football pads. For mommy, I am loving this because football is my absolute favorite, but for daddy - he was kind of hoping Joshua would get interested a little later on. Rodney said before we even had kids, his son would wait until Jr. High to play football. Simply for the reason of not wanting him to get burnt out, but I cannot say that we will be waiting until Jr. High. Who knows. Rodney should have been a coach because he is so GOOD at teaching the kids how to play something. This is where all of his patience comes in. I love watching him teach the kids! He is just a big kid himself.
