Just when things started to wind down, I caved and allowed Riley to start playing flag football at the YMCA. He had such a great time and his team did very well, winning both of their games on Saturday. Riley scored a touchdown in each one! His comment earlier in the week about his team was hilarious. He has only played baseball here and has had some difficulty with kids on his team paying attention, listening to the coach, or being disrespectful. It drives him crazy. So, when I asked him how his first practice went, he said it was "GREAT! The kids weren't goofing around the entire time!" He felt like their attentiveness and respect allowed him to learn more. Great lesson for such a young kid to learn!
I only took a few pictures, but managed to catch this interception on film:
And this "tackle":
