Today's the day for the big game. My eldest has his footbal bowl game today. So far the team has lost just one game, the first one; and that was by 1 touchdown in the last play of the game. Today, they play one last game. He is so excited and saddened at the same time. Excited to play, sad to see the football season come to a close. This is his first season playing football, and he has fallen in love with the game. He is looking forward to playing again next year......and in college. I am so proud of him. He has been working hard and learning many life skills. He has learned that once you make a commitment, you must stick to it, even if something more fun comes along. He has learned how to work together with a team to acomplish a task. Also, life may give you bumps and bruises, but working hard and pushing through will give rewards.
Never thought that I would be a football mom.
