J has been playing flag football again this year. He was so excited to play. He loved the beginning, was very apprehensive in the middle, and now with the last three games of this season, he is doing very well. He is still apprehensive, but he is good at defense and he also can run very fast when he gets the ball.
He also got to bring "Bud" home from school to watch his game. It was so cute that he wanted him there. "Bud" is a garden gnome that comes home with each one of the first graders to have adventures with them. Then, the first-graders write a story about what happened with "Bud". He already had "Bud", that he wanted to have him watch his football game so badly, that his teacher let him take "Bud" home again.
