Fabulous Friday is an understatement...








Today is fabulous because we're going to give away another great prize.





But, today is more than fabulous in our world. It's a frenzy of excitement and nerves. It's a first. It's going to be fun from beginning to end (hopefully). It's been on Keller's mind since last April...when he decided to try out for the highschool football team. TODAY IS KELLER'S FIRST FOOTBALL GAME.





It's a varsity game, so not sure if he'll see action on the field. He's just a Freshman. And at 6' 1.75", he still looks small next to the upperclassmen. And, he's still my baby, of course. So, I'm perfectly happy just seeing him in his uniform....seeing him run on the field...seeing him be a part of something so much bigger than himself.





Our day started at 6am...dressing in his varsity blazer and tie presented by the coaches yesterday. Then, a few last minutes to study for a World Geography test. And, Keller actually let me take a couple pictures...not many, but I'll take it.

















Then, off to school....so fun for me to watch his 'swagger' as he left the car & walked to his building....so fun to see girls' heads turn toward the football player....so fun to see him 'high five' another lineman.




I hope Keller soaks it all in. And enjoys the fruits of his labor for the last 5 months...4 hours a day in 100+ degree heat every day. I hope he walks with pride all day knowing that he is one of only 7 Freshman to make Varsity. Not bad for a kid who had only previously played 4 football games at the Y in 5th grade. I want him to never forget the sound of the band and cheers at his first pep rally today. (and he even agreed to let me come & take pix at it...with permission from the coaches of course...so stay tuned for those this weekend) I want him to enjoy the short ride with his team across town...as Thomas County Central (county school, Keller's school) kicks off the season with the biggest rival in our town...by going to play the Thomasville Bulldogs (city school). I hope he remembers every word his coach has to say before running on the field. I hope he listens to the crowd tonight. And hears the drums & the cheerleaders & all the noise of this town that fills that stadium tonight.




It's big. It's Keller's day. Truly, a FABULOUS FRIDAY!

Good luck to your team, Keller. Our football team was the Yellow Jackets many, many, many, years ago. I am off today to watch my grandaughter perform at her homecoming game. Good luck, again.
