Can you guess where I spent my evening?
And where I will be spending many more this month...
HIKE....the football season is upon us and a little normalcy is nice to have back in our lives.
That would be Luke, our 9 year old in the black shirt.....1st season playing. I guess after he saw his brother, Seth, run, tackle and tackle some more last year.....He decided he wanted a turn on the field this year. We are thinking he has more of a throwing arm and his speed is rather quick...Barclay thinks Quarterback....time will tell. But one things for sure,
He loved his first night on the field.
Seth moved up to the 120's this year....He has his daddy's build ya know! :) He's quick, He's tough and he has a fire in his belly for this sport. Why all his sports require a helmet, makes this momma a little crazy....but yet again, we walk by faith!
I forgot how crazy the football season is when you are healthy and whole. To say I was a bit overwhelmed this evening would be an understatement. At the field by 5:45 and staying til 8:00, five nights a week, has given me a few moments of pause today. Not too sure how this is going to look in the next couple of weeks. But we are giving it a go. To see the joy on the boy's faces and give them some normalcy back into life. I'll do whatever it takes.
And they both went full steam ahead.....
as we all enjoyed from the sidelines and Faith and Jed played at the playground.
I was a tired momma when 8:00 hit. Pain meds had worn off. No nap today. But to see these two smile.....worth every minute.
Football will be adding a new layer to our days, especially as I am STILL not driving due to this right arm of mine, oh and valium and Percocet. But each day the dosage is a little less and the arm gains a little more movement. It's hard to keep me down for long.
One thing is for sure, as crazy as the day was,
a little normalcy is such a welcome addition to my day.
Here's to the start of many days on the football field and many cheers from the sideline.
