Super Mom

School rugby

We live two houses away from our local high school.  The school I went to as a teenager.  Yesterday we could hear that they were hosting some kind of sport, so the boys and I walked there to have a look.

We were just in time for the 1st rugby teams to play their game.  I smiled at my boys feeling so passionate about the sport AND the school.  They were shouting as loudly as the school kids.  Unfortunately we the school lost but we had fun.

It was fun to sit there and shout with them.  To explain some of the rules and discuss the right and wrong actions by the players.  As if I know anything about the sport!  Isn’t it just wonderful when the kids still think we know everything?

  1. Seems like your day didn’t turn out too bad, afterall. And it sounds like it was a good learning experience for your potential rugby players. I am sure your boys enjoyed the outing 😉

    I love watching the highschool games. Many of our friends have kids in high school and varsity – we are always getting to watch these games. But now with the photography, I tend to miss alot of the game being behind the camera all the time but I still love it!

  3. It won’t be long and those boys will be there at the high school playing themselves. Their expert mom will be even more of an expert.

  4. There is nothing like seeing your kids get passionate about something… especially something you like as well. Sounds like it was a good day.

    Popping in. You look good. Can’t believe the babies are so big. Has it really been so long? My kids firmly believe that all moms have super powers.

  9. Oh they are very much involved in sports (you’ll get enough of their rugby pretty soon) 🙂 Quintus has did karate for 2 years but stopped in December. They both take part in golf. My guys love sports 🙂
