After a long vetting process and then several more months waiting for a match, I became a Big Brother back in June. My new "little brother" is named Brayden. He's an active 9 year old who likes video games, candy, sports, and stuff most stuff other 9 year old kids like.

They make you take a picture after getting matched. This was ours.

We've played Frisbee golf, watched a movie, went to Liberty Land, gone bike riding (he crashed--not our best activity), played ping pong, foosball, air hockey, and video games. Most recently I went to one of his football games. His team is undefeated and has already made the playoffs.



This shot was pure luck. He just happened to be making a game changing tackle right in front of my camera. I caught him just before he laid this kid out.

Pumped up.

Extra point is good. (no kicking at this level) Final score: 27-12

Post game huddle

Brayden is a Cute Kid! Spencer did football 2 years ago and loved it. They don't have it where we live now, until they are 10.
What a great Big Brother by the way!

Now... to get you involved with the Big Alliance.

I have REAL big brothers and they never take me out for that much fun...I want a refund.

I love it that you've done this! It's a mutually beneficial pursuit. I'm happy Jack has you to support him especially at team events.
