Field Trip and Football

Howdy!  Last week Ryan went on a field trip to Countryside Farms.  He was so excited.  He's at that age where riding a bus is still fun and exciting and it might have been the highlight of his day, rather than the actual pumpkins and farm.  He was also so excited that Rich got to go as well.  Rich loves going on field trips and tries to go on as many as he can.  I love that Rich loves it, because I really don't love it and I feel he should enjoy a large quantity of kids in an unstructured setting as many times as possible.  Does the heart good!!

Here is Caden and Ryan.  They are best little buddies and Caden's older brother is on Matt's football team.

Bus rides with friends are the best!

Silly goose!

Here they are right before planting seeds.

Ryan and Caden hiding out in the tunnel.

Being silly.  Are you thinking what I am think???  Where have those hands been?

I love this picture because it looks like the kid believes at any time the tractor will move and he is in control. season.  I have a slight confession.  I am a little sad that football is ending.  Last year at this time I was BEGGING for football to end.  Remember our "team and spirit building year" when we played for 10 weeks and got creamed 10 weeks in a row?  This year it's different.  They are not bad....not bad at all!  In fact, it turns out that when a team is not that bad...kinda more fun to watch.  This Saturday we play our final game and its a big one against the Packers.  We are the only team to tie them and the last game when it ended in a tie, we actually acted as if we won the game.  True story.  So this weekend were are going all CLEAR EYES, FULL HEARTS on them!! 

Last weekend Matt had one of his better games of the season.  He caught two punt returns and he ran one of them down the field to the two yard line.  He caught a pass in the end zone for an extra point.  Again...a more exciting season for all!

Here is Matt and Stephanos breaking up a pass.  Look below...

See number 7 in the middle of the picture, he caught the ball that Matt and Stephanos tipped and he ran down the field almost scoring a touchdown.  What is so cool about this is that it is the first play Luke has had all year.  He hasn't caught a ball or had a run play. We were all screaming and cheering for him and it was more fun to see his teammates get so excited for him.

Matt and Stephanos again.

Matt and Jake.  What I love about this picture, the entire reason I took it, is that Jake is the poster boy for "ready, set, go" and what is Matt doing?  Standing there with his hands on his flags.  One of these kids is not like the other!

Blocking for Jake!

As one season ends, another season starts next week!!  Woohooo!!!!!
