Football Friday Week 7

I have fallen behind on my posting, but will try to do better. We had a team meltdown last week and lost an embarrassing game to the Lexington Minutemen. This week we travel down the road from them and play the Higginsville Huskers. It is going to be a tough team, but if we got our act together, we have a chance to pull it off. Both teams have a record of 3-3, so this will put one into a losing season so far this year.

This week has been a little eventful. Tuesday night we got to meet Colton's girlfriend Lindsey. She was nervous, it didn't go as well as it should. Wednesday night we went bowling with John, Carol and Connie. It was a fun time! I bowled a 110 and 117 which is better than I have done in a long time! Last night was Taco Thursday at Washington Street, preceded by ordering Colton's graduation stuff.

Freddie had an "incident" at Vo-Tech this week and shattered his nose! Ouch! He goes for reconstructive surgery Wednesday at KU Med. These boys are going to be the death of me!

Today in History

Actually right now we are going to talk about yesterday in history! October 1, 1924 James Earl Carter was born in Georgia. He served two terms as a Georgia state Senator, as Georgia's 76th Governor and he later became the 39th President of the United States. 

Today I am spending the day at Renfest in Kansas City. I will update you all on how well that went on Monday!

Football Friday Week 6

I have been slacking on my blogging this week, but will try to do better!

Last night we hosted Senior night for the football players. We had 15 hungry boys at our house. It was a nice evening and I think it all went really well. Jasper and the geese were a hit with them! The team is off to Lexington tonight to play the Minutemen and I am ready to head out for the game in a few hours as well. I think we have a chance. Although we lost last week, we have a good team and they have been working hard at it.

Monday Night Football

Colton called me right before noon yesterday to let me know he would be playing on the JV team against Polo that night. So, I rallied the troops and loaded up a fan club to watch him, Colten and Justin play last night. The "stadium" was a muddy mess!

 We lost the game 8-6, but our boys fought hard!

Homecoming Update

Well, we lost our game Friday night. They were bigger, badder and lasted longer than we did. The final score was 48-21. It was still a beautiful night for football and the boys played hard. Colton also had quite the fan club show up for him.

Homecoming Friday!

Today is Homecoming. The last one I will enjoy with a child in high school. The parade is this afternoon and then I will be out to help set up the tail gating party the Quarterback Club is sponsoring. The big game tonight is against the West Platte Bluejays who have the same record as we do, 3-1. The Homecoming queen crowned on Wednesday was Jordan Cox and Dalton Preston was crowned King.

Go Bulldogs!!

City or country? Civilization or wilderness? Order or chaos?

It is funny that this prompt came up today. My daughter Destiny and I were just talking about this some yesterday. I definitely pick country. I like where we live, but given a choice I would pick more country than what we have. I would love to have enough room to have all the animals I want and plenty of room for them to roam wherever they want. 

Civilization or wilderness? This is a bit trickier. I would almost yell out wilderness without thinking too much about it, but after some thought, I am not sure total wilderness is the thing for me. I think it would be neat to live off the land as much as possible and be far, far away from the ding dongs I seem to attract, but I know I would miss some interaction from civilization. If there is a happy medium, I vote for that.

Order or chaos? This is not a choice for me. Chaos picks me! I can't imagine it any other way!
