As summer comes to an end, I can’t help but get a little giddy thinking of what is waiting right around the corner.
While some people look forward to relaxing fall weekends sitting fireside with friends, I look forward to the Friday Night Lights!
We have three sons: a junior at Texas Tech University who is a coaching intern in neighboring Levelland, a junior in high school who is in the sports medicine program, and a fifth grader who plays pee-wee football. Combine all of that with a husband who loves football so much that I had to schedule our wedding on a bye week, and to whom I even promised never to plan another major event during football season in our wedding vows, and you have the ULTIMATE football family.
Our next 16 or so weekends will consist of no fewer than five games every Friday to Sunday. On Friday nights, I will be on the sidelines covering Prosper Eagles Football while keeping an eye on two other high schools for my kiddos. Saturday is reserved for pee-wee and Red Raider football, followed by Sunday. Sunday is, and will always be, for our Dallas Cowboys.
Some families plan vacations over the holidays…not us. “Teams to remember play in December” rings loud and proud in our house. Our idea of a vacation is a trip to Arlington late in December!!
