Our JV Boy!

Saturday was an awesome day. Not only was it Kevin’s birthday, but it was also the very first time Chris played JV football. Even though KW lost 14-26, it was the best game Chris has ever played. The majority of the game he play on the offense and was on the kick return team. Both positions are somewhat new to Chris but that didn’t stop him from doing as the coach said and following through like he was supposed to.

Chris made a number of awesome plays, he blocked just like he should, and he protected his quarterback as planned. While he played on the kick return team he blocked the other players so they couldn’t get to his ball carrier. It was picture perfect!

With minutes left in the game they put Chris in on the defense which is the position he loves to play. If the other team wouldn’t have sat on the ball that last play Chris would have sacked their quarterback because he was inches away from getting to him.

One of Chris’ favorite plays is one the coach says is just for him. He rolls to the left or right to throw the other team off and to get a player that may otherwise not be blocked. He is really good at this play and so he is the only one that does it. Below are pictures of some awesome plays Chris had during the JV game.

Chris, dad and I are so proud of you. You’ve worked hard over the years and it’s starting to pay off. Keep up the hard work because it will continue to work in your favor. Don’t forget the Bible verse Philippians 4:13. “I can have all things through Christ who strengthens me.”

We’re proud of you and we love you!!!!

Now it’s about Chris

During that same camping trip I mentioned yesterday, I could just tell my oldest wanted to have a blog post written about him too. He didn’t flat come out and say it, but a mom just knows. Hehehe

This post is all about my oldest son Chris. He’s 15 years old and he’s a wonderful kid. He was born three weeks early but the doctor did a gestational age test on him and he was actually two weeks late. He’s been a big boy all of his life but that hasn’t stopped him from doing what he enjoys. He loves to play football and basketball. He also likes track but had to stop due to a back injury.

He’s a very busy kid. He lifts weights and works out with the football team three days a week during the summer. He does a lot of work for a very nice lady down the street, he’s learned to long board (that’s a long skate board), and he enjoys being with his friends. He’s always on the go, but is a typical teenager in that he sleeps a good portion of the day away. LOL

He’s very helpful and strong which makes it nice when we need something heavy moved. He’s always willing to help no matter what you need or want him to do. Those are wonderful qualities that any mom would be proud to say her child has and it makes me happy to say my son has them. :) I love you Chris!

A Flagger at the Game, How Fun!

Last night we went to a Wyoming Calvary game and needless to say it was one that we enjoyed thoroughly. The game itself was exciting to say the least. The Cav’s usually have multiple scores by the end of the 1st quarter, but that was not the case last night. They started out struggling to score and the end of the 1st quarter left a score of seven for the Cav’s and six for the other team.

Chris really enjoys going to the games and he enjoys working them even more. He spent the majority of the last season cleaning the locker rooms after the game. Now most of you would think this is a terrible job for a 14 year old (at the time), but he really enjoyed it. It made him feel like he was a part of the team and he was able to spend time with the players. He felt important and they got to know him at the same time.

Well this season is no different. The first game (last week) he cleaned the locker rooms and really enjoyed it. This game he was able to run the flags on the field, throw out prizes to the crowd, and clean the locker rooms. Last night was an awesome night for Chris and one I’m sure he won’t forget for a long time. Below are a few pictures and a video.
