Last Football Game

Our high school football team did not make the playoffs so tonight will be their last game of the season. It will be my son's last football game EVER. He is sad because he LOVES football and I am sad because I LOVE watching my son play football. I am also sad because once again....it's a sign that he is growing up and will be leaving the "nest" soon. Please pray for my son and for me tonight as we go through this emotional night.

oh, shoot. That is so sad. I will be thinking of you guys. Maybe if my hunter's leave early enough, I'll come to the game instead of sorting cows for you like I told Chad I would. Priorities, you know. Hopefully his birthday coming up will cheer him up some....or will it just make mom even sadder?

I'll be thinking of you. My son quit swimming...out of the blue. I have already gone through the sad emotions just thinking that I won't ever see him swim again. I kind of wish I would have known when I watched him at state last spring...I just assumed he'd be back.

Enjoy your night! Go out with your friends afterward. I'm sure they could find some way to cheer you up :-) And DON'T forget your camera!!!

I'm still sad that my oldest is in Kindergarten so I can't even imagine how many emotions go with having a senior! I'll be thinking of you tonight Chris! Good luck Jeremy!

High School football games are the funnest---I know, "funnest" is not a word, but I like to say it anyway, it's the funnest word to say;)

I will be saying a prayer for you both. Enjoy this last game together! I am still in shock that my oldest is a sophmore, only 2 more years! UGH! and then my youngest is in Kindergarten this year! AUGH! Motherhood, what a blessing, but a emotional roller coaster ride at times! Momma smile and enjoy this last game!

Oh, it's hard to see the end of a season of life, but thankfully it just means that there are wonderful new beginnings coming!

Blessings,

Oh Chris, I can feel your mama's heart! I went through this exact thing a couple of years ago. My son ate, slept, drank football! Then off to college where he wasn't involved in sports! It was really weird for hubby and I to get used to because for so many years, Josh had played football, basketball, soccer, and even baseball. So we always were running to practice and games. We really miss it still! But --- we would be sad if our sons didn't grow and become men too, sooo...I'm learning to deal. I hope its a little tad easier when my second son is grown. *crying already just thinking about it*

I didn't get to comment on this post last week, but I did see it and I did think of y'all as we sat and watched our high school football team play. I hope he did good during his last game. And I hope you cheered your heart out!
