(my son is #74 in the white jersey)
I am so out of my blogging routine that I went shopping today without lining up everything for a photo op! Maybe it was partly due to the fact that my daddy came for a visit. I was just trying to get it all put up and get the house clean. My dad drove 4 hours from Atlanta to see my son play football. It was the last JV game. If they are not ahead by a couple of touchdowns then the coaches don't even let my son play. I told my dad and he was still willing to drive just for the chance to see him. My dad also did this when we returned from the cruise and my kids gave me a surprise birthday party. He drives over 4 hours and will stay 2 and then drive back home. My son did get to play about 4 minutes tonight. Our team won 35-6. My dad has always been so good to be there. He is someone you can count on to go the extra mile out of his way for other people.
