Bragging about My Kids
Jake is having quite a year. Won a state championship in Pop Warner. Won the Avondale School District Math Competition. Finished in the top 1% of all students on the AIMS standardized tests. And on Saturday, his position coach called and all he could say was what a hard worker he was, how much he had improved, and how coachable he was. He may start both ways this football season.
Jarrett started Pop Warner this season and is enjoying it and working his butt off. I feel bad because he is a seven year old on a team of seven, eight, and nine year olds. Being young is going to be rough. Especially when your brother is trying to win back to back championships.
I went to Michaels and got three pictures framed of Jake and Jackson:
Jake and Jackson skiing for the condo. Nice 16x20 frames with matting.
Jarrett is just learning to ski and learning to play football. Some big shoes to fill. It is tough to give equal time to both an 11 year old and a 7 year old when Jake is skiing better than I am and is playing ubercompetitive football and Jarrett is learning and playing football for fun on a Mighty Mite team.
I will add that it is a bad idea to call Jake's team a bunch of Mighty Mites. Jarrett's team... maybe. =)

Nothing better than kids that make their dad proud. Some great accomplishments and most importantly they are clearly good kids.
