The Red Devils

Well, the Red Devil season wrapped up last weekend with a win.  It was splendid season enjoyed by Silly guy and his family.  He learned so much from his coach about sportsmanship, being a team player, and skills. I think the most important lesson he took away this season was to have fun.  He has always taken sports very seriously.  At his age(9) I think to much seriousness can take away from the fun.  From the very first practice his coach set this example for the boys.  Silly guy told me this was his favorite season and I think this have fun attitude was the reason. He completly took the pressure off of them.  He taught him skills during practice and the game was a chance to show they studied their homework.  Before the game would begin he'd tell them what skills he wanted to see them use and they did it.  
So Tuesday evening, we had the team party where the boys received their trophies.  But better than that they once again had a blast.  Coach and the boys had planned ahead of time to bring Nerf guns.  Many of us parents had no idea of this plan.  Some of the boys forgot(including my own) but no worries because coach brought enough for everyone.  They ran around for 2 1/2 hours playing Nerf guns.  I couldn't get him to leave.
