Family Football


Playing a game of "two below" after lunch is a family tradition. For those of you who do not know the game, it is similar to flag football without the flags. Rather than tackle, you must get two hands below the waist on the player with the ball. There are lots of other sandlot rules, but it is still football with everyone playing from the oldest cousin to the youngest.


Toby has taken a few days off to work on the barn. We are driving to Shawnee today to pick up the metal siding. Tomorrow we will start putting the "skin" on the frame. With Toby home, I do not have much time to post. I will get back to writing after he goes back to work.

Looked like a great time was had by all! Was that Craig's face that was covered?

Our outdoor activity has evolved to tossing washers, less strenuous, but every bit as intense a competition.

It was Pete's face covered. I will post a picture of Craig just for you, Dale. I thought of you while playing football and all of those neighborhood games played when we were kids. Of course, then I think about my fight with Jimmy Northcut:p

Ahem...lesson from my childhood: Playing "two below" football with the neighborhood kids isn't such a good idea when you're the only girl on the street.

I understand what your saying Becky, but trust me Lou Lou held her own very well. Just ask Jimmy!

I held my own too, Dale. But looking back, there were times I wasn't sure if I was being tackled or being groped. ;)
