I’m still thinking about kids going back to school. The next couple of weeks will be based on school time themes. This week will be Athletics! Age old athletics to be exact. Ones that have been around a long time. Are there any requests for which sports you’d like to see? I have a few in mind, but they are always subject to change based on my beloved Oohmoonie’s preferences!
Today is obviously about football. I love to go to outdoor football games. Once there is a crisp chill in the air outside, and you can start to smell the leaves changing (even before they change), I get a craving for a football game. In the small town we grew up in, no one missed a football game on Friday or Saturday nights. I’m so excited that I have a great excuse to go to games again. My baby brother (though, not so much a baby anymore) just transferred colleges to play football for the local college here where we live! I’m so excited to start going to his games! And my husband and I are especially excited for the night his team plays our college alma mater! Yay! Can’t wait! The lights, the chill, the blankets on our laps, the food, the pomp, the band, the crowd… such fun!
Did any women here ever play football in younger days (at my school they called it “powder puff” football). Once every fall, the freshman and sophomore girls got to play the junior and senior girls on the high school football field. The football team guys were our refs. Oh my did we look forward to the night! And man did we have a blast!! There was no tackling (just touch), but it was a blast! I would think back on the game for weeks afterward! Seriously!
Awww… the olden days. My favorite cd to listen to in the fall is “October Road” by James Taylor! I LOVE this cd! For me it is like listening to Christmas music at Christmas time… once fall comes, James Taylor gets played. I mean, I believe it is my most listened to cd of all time! All time! The song, “September Grass” always makes me want to go to a football game! And both together… oh me oh my! They help make autumn autumn. LOVE! (Actually, I hated the cd when I first heard it! My boyfriend at the time started listening to it and I couldn’t stand it… but the more I heard it, the more I fell in love I guess.) What cd do you love this much?
Hope everyone had a good weekend!
