A Fun Friday Night!!
This past Friday night was a very proud night for me. My two oldest sons (not biological, but mine!) Archie & Tyler attend McLane High School. Archie is in JROTC and is a part of the Color Guard who presented the Flag before the Varsity game started. He looked extremely sharp in his uniform and I am very proud of him for being so involved with JROTC!! Tyler is on the JV football team and this was his very first game because the coach didn't have a helmet that would fit him properly and he had to wait to be able to play. I think I was driving Jeff crazy because I kept asking him when they were going to put Tyler in...like he would know what the coach was going to do. LOL! Finally, in the fourth quarter they sent him in, I was so excited to watch him play and glowed with pride because, that was my son on the field...OK, if the truth be known, I was a little scared that he was going to get hurt but I think that is just part of being a mom. We had a lot of fun watching the boys do their thing and of course watching my daughters & my niece checking out the boys, doing the cheers with the cheerleaders and dancing with the mascot. Whoever said you can't have a strong bond with children whom you don't give birth to is a LIAR!!! I couldn't love those children any more or be more proud of them if they were my own flesh & blood!!!
