And they really are never at a loss for good games....we jokingly say our allegiance is split 3 ways. We both graduated from Woodruff, we now live in the Byrnes district, but Michael's best friend (do guys say that???) is the AD at Dorman. I think in the end his love for Woodruff wins out (did you know they are conference champs this year?!).
Jake tickles me the way he gets into the game. He yells the whole time - sometimes he knows what he's yelling about...sometimes he doesn't. And he comes home and describes in great detail what went on at the game...who he saw (you know mom, that girl you know with brown hair who has a kid...oh yeah, that one?!?), who made what plays, who was hurt and how, the winner....all from the mind of a 5 year old. It's entertaining to say the least.
So, this Friday....we decided to come with the boys since this was a big game, or possibly THE biggest game. We really did end up having a good time! Uncle Gary came with Michael so that was a big treat as well! The kids ran and played while the ladies chatted and the men watched the game. Just the way it should be! ;)
Here is Jake gently leading Ella Kate to shake the football player's hand. I cannot believe she did it! I was terrified of football players when I was young. Even as a teenager I thought they were scary!
Jake made it his personal goal to shake every single player's hand. He is not shy in the least! He would walk right up to them and stick that hand out and wait until they shook it. They're so sweet in obliging him. I guess they know they have a little kid that wants to be just like them when he grows up!
