Yep...it's officially FOOTBALL season around here!!! Holden is playing his THIRD season of tackle football for the Pendleton Junior Football League and was drafted by the Philadelphia Eagles for his 5th-6th grade years!!! WHOOHOO! Here he is looking like a tough guy in his new jersey (look at the two beaming next to him! HAHAHA)
Holden has had a LOT of long practices after school, and SOMETIMES I get to go and watch (if it isn't too hot). Here is me checking him out before practice looking all big and beefy in his equipment...
Here I am helping him practice his "chop block"
In related news.....
I'm sure by now, we all know that Michael Vick has signed with the REAL Eagles. We discovered a cool post from a fellow blogger (Scout and Freyja) that will send an email to Eagles owner Jeff Lurie asking him to match Vick's salary in donations to local animal shelters and rescue groups!

In the meantime...please know that mom REFUSES to buy me a real Eagles jersey to wear during my team mascot duties. Something about "not a #$%@ DIME going to that franchise!"
Yikes...she means business!!!!
