We missed football season last year.
We missed all the hoopla of the school mascot skydiving into the middle of the field at one game, the crazy crowds, Homecoming, etc. We weren’t here, but we sure knew a lot of details from every form of social media.
So I think it feels extra exciting for these kids that they are here for all the hoopla. And the fact that Grace gets to join in too? Extra bonus.
It’s extra fun for her that she knows so many of the seniors who are friends with Elle.
There is some serious school spirit going on which makes it so fun. The kids were SO pumped up about the first game of the season. I stole these pictures from Elle’s phone after the first pep rally.
Grace cheers at the freshman games which are on Wednesdays, so she’s free to get into the crazy school spirit with friends for the varsity games.
I mentioned in another post that Dave and I took Claire and Lucy on a little date to the first game of the season (to check it out and to spy on our girls 🙂 Ha!
The dress-code-call was all black and the students didn’t disappoint.
It was fun to see Grace in the program.
Max HAD to come to that one and only game he was going to be in town for, despite the fact that he just got his wisdom teeth out that morning.
The next game was “everyone wear green” in honor of a family who just lost their Dad. From what I understand, green was his favorite color.
They got crazy into it once again.
And since we have a college boy, we better sure as heck talk about college football for a minute because how about those last two games? I think Max being in college and those couple awesome plays are going to turn me into a college football fan after all 🙂
Max camped out with a whole slew of friends for two nights to get great seats at the first home game. A blog reader sent this little snippet of them camping out:

And then another friend sent this picture of our kids when she caught them in the audience on ESPN:
White face paint and all 🙂
Thanks Brigitta! I LOVE that my boy is hanging out with so many of my college friends’ kids. It’s kinda crazy!
Win or lose, it’s shaping up to be a good football season all the way around.
