Mama OWL Blog: Sport in the Autumn Sunshine

Sport in the Autumn Sunshine

Saturday, 16 November 2013

We're fast approaching the cold, long Winter months now so moments like these are something to hang on to and remember when the frost sets in.

Last Sunday the weather was glorious. Chilly, but the sun was beating down and two of my boys were in their element out on the fields playing football and training for rugby.

E came along in the afternoon to see J play football, and she played in the trees next to the pitch, collecting leaves and scooting along the paths with H.


At rugby, two minutes silence was observed at 11am and the club had organised a bugler to play 'The Last Post' on the clubhouse balcony while the children all stood together up & down the playing fields, and at football that afternoon the teams held a two minute silence before kick off to honour and remember our war heroes.




H was chosen as captain for tomorrow's rugby match, and J's football team went on to win their match 5-3.

It was beautiful day spent outside in the Autumn sunshine, and absolutely one to remember.

  10. Lovely! I love being out for the kids' sport - and good weather is always a bonus. The two minutes' silence at my son's rugby was so moving, although we didn't have a bugler!
