Extreme Joy Is………………

watching your eldest son play Junior Football for the first time……………………………………& kicking his first goal!

He was on the Bench in the 1st quarter, 2nd & 3rd quarters he was in the Ruck (as shown in the photo) & the final quarter he was somwhere near the goals (I’m not very good knowing the positions on the field).

He was awarded a Free Kick, as he was pushed in the back – once he had the ball, he hesitated – not knowing what to do really. He flipped the footy in his hands for a little while & then decided to try & kick a goal – well he achieved it. The ball went straight through the big sticks – he also kicked it from an angle.

A VERY  proud Mother moment on Sunday! His team is the Blue/White jumpers – he is No. 26.

His team mates have also given him a nickname – he is now known as “The Eagle”.

This match was only a practice match against another side – I am now really looking forward to the real competition, which starts this Sunday.
