Mommy Moments – Mr. Football!

Every Friday, we have Mommy Moments! Mommy Moments is a weekly meme where you can join by sharing any “mommy moment” that happened recently in your life. Moments pass by too quickly and often we forget about them. These special moments are meant to be cherished thus we came up with this meme in order to preserve those wonderful memories we have with our kids. Please include the badge which can be foundΒ here. Then just enter your name and the URL address of your post below on the Mr. Linky, so we can all visit one another and see what you have shared with us this week!

On June 2011, the whole family went to watch the Azkals play against Sri Lanka. It was our first time to watch a football game live and we all came home as fans of the Philippines men’s national team. My son fell in love with the game at age 4 and has been following the UFL games and all the other Azkals games since then. He was able to watch the Azkals play live again against LA Galaxy last December. This summer, he was very excited to finally be able to join a short football introductory class. The coaches said that he showed potential!

This summer has really been an eventful one for my son. He also got to meet Emilio “Chieffy” Caligdong.

And he also met Phil Younghusband …

and his favorite, James Younghusband.

They got to chat a bit with him and he had the magazine and the ball signed too.

It was really an awesome experience for him!

And just a few nights ago, we were able to watch the Azkals vs. Indonesia game live again. It was an awesome family bonding experience. And to root for your country together with all the other people, sparks a bit of nationalism in your blood too! We also believe that watching the game brings inspiration to our little Mr. Football to do better in his sports! πŸ™‚
