First Day of School!!

It was a very big day at my house. Each of the kids set off this morning on new adventures!! Bryce attended his first day of college, Jacob - his first day of high school, and Mariah - her first day of junior high! It is hard to believe that the kids have grown that much! I can remember each of them as tiny, tiny babies. This is such a fun and busy time in all their lives and I am so proud of each one of them!

Now once I get home from work, it will be a mad dash to the store to get all the school supplies that are always needed: binders, colored pencils, etc. I have been trying to pick up a few things here and there, so our visit to the store should be fairly painless. Which is good, because I have a wonderful summer cold and really don't want to fight the crowds.

As always, Bryce and Jacob really didn't want their pictures taken. But I got them to stand for a few pictures anyway. No problems with Mariah, she loves the camera.

Good luck to you all on an awesome school year!

Blue/White Scrimmage

I love this time of year. When the mornings get a little cooler and the kids are heading back to school. To me, it means only one thing - Football! As long as I can remember, I have always liked the game of football.

Football becomes a lot more fun when your sons play the game. The last few years have been a blast with Bryce playing for the Syracuse Titans. Now Jacob is playing on the Syracuse High sophomore team. I am so excited for him.

Tonight was the Blue and White Scrimmage. Jacob was able to play both sides of the ball - offense and defense. Although there are about 60 kids on the team, Jacob seems to hold his own and gets some playing time.

Good Luck Titans!
