Organized Sports

For those of you who don't know, Jackson is freakishly good at sports. He can connect with a baseball thrown to him 99 percent of the time, he can shoot a basketball from any place, he can pitch both left and right handed to an exact spot and can hit a golf ball farther than his dad. We have never pushed him to play any sports, it must just be in his blood because the kiddo just LOVES to play any sport.

So...when Jackson was asked to be on a soccer team with some of his buddies from his class at Westminster we said yes knowing how much fun he would have. His first game was two Saturdays ago and I was so excited. I made the comment to Renzi that "this was what I had been waiting for since the moment I found out I was having a boy. Organized sports."

Jackson did great and I don't think we parents have laughed that hard in a long time. Here are two videos from that morning. One is of Jackson "warming up." Please note his arms in the air when he tries to kick the ball. HILARIOUS.

The second video is of "Uncle Tim" interviewing J at half time about his teams' performance. CLASSIC.
