Today (the 26th) is my youngest daughter’s birthday. My baby is 13, and although she’s been looking forward to being a ‘teen’, I’d rather not think about it. lol
I’m taking the view of, if I don’t acknowledge it, they won’t keep getting older…
Think it will work?
My oldest daughter is 16, she’s my,"brown eyed girl." Once a year during homecoming week they have a girl’s powder puff football game. It’s Junior girls against Senior girls.
My daughter has been talking about, and looking forward to this game since she was in 7th grade.
She’s a junior this year, and was the junior team’s quarterback.
There have been instances of the senior team cheating in the past. My daughter let it be known that IF there was cheating this year, she was going to be doing some physical damage. LOL
(She’s very competitive)
I didn’t notice any cheating. It was a fun game to watch. Not only because my daughter was the quarterback, but because I know almost all of the other girls.
What was pretty cute, they had boys in cheerleader outfits… little skirts and all.
Just before the game started one of the senior girl’s mom got on the microphone and called… "Sadie… Sadie… pay attention to me!" "Don’t you get hurt out there!" LOL
The announcers were senior boys, and they kept the audience laughing. One of them kept mentioning the name of one of the senior girls followed with…. My date to the homecoming dance…
Another time, one of the guys says, "John, so and so, says, "Hi" to Amanda, so and so…. because they are friends…. just good friends….
One young man got on the microphone and said the name of the girl he’s taking to the dance, and says, "Thanks for saying Yes."
The game was Seniors, 36, Juniors, 18.
My "brown eyed girl" scored all the touchdowns for the junior team. One was a run for 80 yards, one for 70 yards, and one for 40 yards.
It prompted the young men in the announcer’s booth to announce, that Alaura was Zack’s girlfriend and she plays football better than him…. and basketball…. and everything else… plus she’s lot prettier than him too. LOL
They were in awe of her throwing arm, besides her speed.
I’m proud of her, but can honestly say she doesn’t get that athletic prowess from me. lol
My youngest is playing volleyball, and has a killer serve. They had an away game today. Their team hasn’t lost a game yet. Again, not from me. lol
It was a fun ending to a long busy day. BIG HUGS, Steph
