Saturday, Carter played in his first flag football game. All of the players on the team are between 4 and 6 years old and this was everyone's first game. Needless to say, my expectations were relatively low.

But as soon as the game started, I was impressed and amazed by all of the players on the field. After only three practices, these boys looked like little football players.
|Carter, on the far left, just threw the ball, you can only see the receiver's arms and hands about to catch the pass on the far right.|
In the picture above, Carter had just thrown a pass which the receiver caught and ran in for the extra point. Wow. It was the only pass thrown by either team in the entire game.

This is my favorite play of the game and I was lucky enough to get it on video. I heard the coach yelling "Texas Toast," which I recognized as the name of one of their special plays. Then, I saw him run up, touch Carter's shoulder, and talk to him. I figured that was a pretty good sign that it was time to start recording. Carter is the running back on this play, not the quarterback. Check out the fluidity of the hand off and Carter's moves on the field. Good stuff.
Words cannot express how proud we are of Carter. We're all looking forward to next week's game.
