My boys love Upward Flag Football.  This is Jack's 3rd year playing and Charlie's 1st.  It's a great organization that teaches Christ-like sportsmanship and still keeps score (which I think is an important part of teaching sportsmanship)!
Anyway, Jack has really developed a love of this game and plays hard and tough.
*Disclaimer: the pics aren't great. It was at night and I had to zoom in pretty far and they were taken with my iphone and not an actual camera.*

See? Check him out trying to psych out the other team here! The other guy couldn't even maintain eye contact! Ha!

Defense is generally Jack's favorite position to play. He is an awesome flag-puller.
But he has skill on offense too.  Last Friday night, he had his first touchdown of the season.  He caught the ball, fought hard against three opponents to make in into the end zone, and then scored!!
During the fall months, I shout "touchdown" pretty often...but this was the best time I've said it so far this year!! 

After the game was over, Alex and I walked over to where the team was gathered to de-brief and Jack ran up to me, threw his arms around me and said, "I got a touchdown!" 
Talk about melting a mama's heart.
I hope he still does that when he's 16!
(Just kidding, Dad. I know you rolled your eyes when you read that!)
Way to go, Jack!!!
