A lot has been going on this week (cleaning, mostly, in anticipation of Thanksgiving which will soon bring 7 house guests and about 25 for dinner); however, I have managed to sneak in a little sewing which I will be sharing soon. But first, I hope you'll entertain a little digression. I try to keep this primarily a quilting blog...but sometimes something in life is a little overwhelming...and you just feel the need to write about it! The little guy in the photo above is my youngest, and the photo was taken several years ago after he decided he wanted to wear his big brother's uniform...because, you see, even at a young age this little guy loved football. With. All. His. Heart.
He's had a pretty impressive high school career earning regional and state awards along with 15 touchdowns his junior year.
His senior year has been a lot of fun and has included more awards and 20 touchdowns. He's had a great time! It's been fun to be his mom as they racked up a 12-1 record and headed to the State Championship game on Saturday night.
It was a beautiful Las Vegas evening, we had an amazing crowd, and the team was prepared; sometimes, though, giving it all you have isn't good enough, and the win that was supposed to be...wasn't. In the end, though, he handled the loss with grace and dignity just as any true champion would. It's a blessing to be the Mom of such a quality young man, and while I'll miss the football games...I'm grateful for the memories!
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful day!
