One afternoon in September, I asked Jessica to watch my kids for a bit while I did some photography. When I came to get them, I found Eli (in red) and Andrew (in yellow) engaged in a heart-felt game of football with Mitch. This remains one of Andrew’s favorite play times of fall 2011.
It seemed that a huge part of the playing of football was the celebrating of runs.
There was helmet knocking, hugging, high-fiving, and extreme happiness. Can you see Eli’s missing tooth (it didn’t get knocked out during football play).
Love the earnest looks on these boys’ faces.
Watch out, boys, it looks like Mitch is coming through!
He’s broken through the defensive line!!
Did Mitch make it to the end zone? Perhaps. I’m pretty sure, though, the that helmeted players carried the day.
Ahh, and now some well-deserved nourishment – a made-from-scratch caprese sandwich. I love this picture of these two friends sitting. Together. Both so dear to my heart.
