He is an amazing athlete and can play any sport with ease. He's the kind of kid anyone would be lucky to have around on a day to day basis. And what is his sport of choice right now, well of course football.
I make arrangements every Monday to go to his game, I don't think I have ever missed a football game...(Actually 3 years ago when he played his Freshman year of little league, I missed it because Izaiah played on another team at different locations. So Justin and I had to split up.) And this year Izaiah has practice on Monday's, which at first worried me, I mean how can I get Izaiah to practice and still make D's games.....but luckily Izaiah has a great dad. Even though he lives in Angleton, he will drive to Spring on Monday's pick Izaiah up and take him to practice, so I can attend Donovan's games with my husband. (and if you don't know, Angleton is about a 60 to 90 minute drive one way from Spring, so that says a lot about his dad)
I may not be his biological mom but I do the same for him and love him the exact same as I do for my biological children.....I love our big blended family!
I have definately made football a frequent discussion on here, I can't help it, it's a major part of our lives. And this year is another monumental year, it's Donovan's first year as a middle school football player. He's on the 7th grade A-team, we literally are two years away from high school ball. My husband is really looking forward to plenty more years of this. So I just have to share some images with you from last weeks games....
Okay so about this first one, this is something he does every game, several times a game, he's pointing out the ref and verifying that he is lined up correctly....just a small tid bit of info about him that the average person wouldn't notice.
