    Fun news about my youngest son...
    The quarterback for my son's JV football team quit suddenly on monday, deciding he no longer wanted to play football. So, the coach asked my youngest son to play QB for the high school's junior varsity football team. He is a sophomore, and has never quarterbacked before. Even though he rarely expresses emotion, you can tell he is pretty doggone excited. As for myself, I am just about bursting with excitement. I hope he can keep the job, but he seems confident about that.

    Anyway, I'm just really up right now, my two kids are both having a terrific school year, and it has not even truly started yet.

    That is awesome!

    There is nothing more satisfying in the world when our kids do something well and when they are happy. That is what we as parents truly want.

    Oooooooooo that IS exciting! How'd his first game go?

    You know he's gonna be impossible to live with now? LOL - He's gonna breathe, eat and sleep football. :-)

    Please let us know how he does!
    Peace,

    He did pretty well, although we need to work on his passing a bit, lol, made me nervous every time he threw the ball. I thanked the coach afterwards for thinking of him and letting him have a chance at the spot, and the coach said that Evan was the first kid he thought of when they realized they would need a replacement. He went on to say that he would rather have him play cornerback at the varsity level, but that they want to use him for now to run the jv offense. So, maybe not permanent, but we'll see.

    Heck, I just want my son to play, I've never been concerned with what position, just that he enjoy himself and that he gets some time in....but that was pretty cool to see him at qb.
