Is there anything sexier than seeing a father be involved with his kids? I can't think of many things that warm my heart more. I wish everyone could see Jeff in action as Ian's flag football coach. It is quite a sight!
I had about 6 very close girlfriend's mouths drop open when I said Jeff was going to coach Ian's team. Even Jeff and Ian were a bit surprised that Jeff got instantly promoted from his desire to be an assistant coach to the top position. No one was certain how this was going to go, especially given Jeff's ability to get frustrated and lose patience very easily. In similar fashion to Jeff wanting to chaperone the 12 hour field trip to Jamestown (on a bus, no less), we've all been pleasantly surprised at Jeff rising to the challenge and then some.
Out on the field, Jeff is so patient with the kids; even with the one that never stops asking questions. And he has this smile on his face as he calls out encouraging words to the kids on the field or gives them advice on which way to go with the ball. I am so proud of him and love to watch him in action. Ian is enjoying having his dad be involved too.
Coach Toppall...it has a nice ring to it! Now, we just need Jeff's huge projects he is knee deep in at work to get in line with the program.
