To the Championship!!!

For the first time, I think ever, the Briarwood 4th grade football team is going to the championship game! Blake's team beat Thompson 13-6 in a play off game Thursday. It was very exciting and lots of fun. The cheerleaders made posters for the boys with their names and numbers. Blake's looks like the back of a football player with his name on the back. I'll try to remember to take a picture soon and post. The game will be Saturday, Nov. 8th at 1. Hopefully will have great news to report that day.

Jack has a baby brother!

This past week has been crazy busy. Friday afternoon I decided I had to be with my sister when she had a C section on Monday. Well I drove to Atlanta to stay with Lisa-stayed up too late-then got up too early and we drove to Savannah to surprise Carrie at her baby shower. When we got there she said that she had a dream I would be there! We had a great weekend playing with 3 1/2 yr old Jack. Monday, Henry was scheduled to arrive at 1130. Those in the hosptial know how know that wasn;t gonna happen. Henry arrived at 1344. All 6 lbs 3 oz of him. He looks just like his brother, but still his own little person. I could EAT HIM UP! Now I wait until Thanksgiving to see him again. Blake's team lost tonight, but still in the playoffs-more to come later.

Going to the playoffs baby!

Blake's football team won 7-6 in a real nailbiter! Blake had some great blocks and got to be team captain. He had a great time. With tonight's win, his team secured a spot in the playoffs. It is nice to have a winning football team as opposed to say...Auburn! We did make it down there on Saturday to watch us fall apart-awful! On a happy note, I got to visit with a good friend from college, Diane, before the game. We talked nonstop from the moment we met up until we said goodbye on the way in to the game. Here is a picture of us before the game-we are very windblown! Here is another pic of the boys and our friend Chris' son, Will, at Tiger Walk.

After many football games over the past few years, Connor got a touchdown tonight! He caught a pass in the endzone. It was very exciting and all the moms around me were yelling but didn't realize it was Connor until I yelled really loud. The team beat a Vestavia team 14-7. A boy on the other team fell awkwardly on his head and had to be taken by ambulance, the teams prayed for him, as did all the parents. We took pictures before the game and here is one of my little receiver!

The Streak is Over

Sadly, b's football team lost for the 1st time this season. Remember the name Aaron Johnson-he will be a killer in Homewood sports in the years to come. He scored on the opening kickoff-the first time b's team had ever been scored upon. Much sadness around here. Doesn't help that Auburn SUCKS either. Off to class in the morning. Still loving it. Might try to get a job at St. vincent's in the ER...we'll see. I have 2 more weeks left and I really do love it. Got an IV on a manequin on the first try of course. Can still do calculations and could probably help run a code if I had to. Just need to jump in with both feet and see what happens next.
Taking pics of c's team tomorrow, hopefully wil have somthing exciting to post for his game.
