Stillings scores two!!!

This is a picture of Josh making his first touchdown of the season !!
And here he is running for his 2nd touchdown of the day !! I felt my tears welling up for this one. I don't have a picture of him actually crossing the line on the second one , because I put down the camera to watch him.
Josh has been working out everyday. Ever since we took him to see the movie "Invinceable" he has been very inspired to be the very best he can be. He has a daily routine that he does consisting of sit ups, jumping jacks , push ups and running around the house. We live in the country so there is no place to actually run so he runs around the house. We also got him a small trampoline for in the house so he can jog in place.
We have told him that the harder you work at something , the better you will be. You get what you put into it, and all other inspirational saying we could think of. Well he has been listening and I was soooooooooooooo glad to see him score these two touchdowns. It showed him that working hard pays off. It was such a great lesson.
This is his last year of flag football and next year he puts on the pads and helmet. It will be a big change and I like he is getting stronger everyday , running faster and learning how to treat his body at a young age. I know in this day and age with lots of over weight , unhealthy children this is so important.
He is even inspiring me to excerise !!
Again my son just amazes me !!!
