I think a million and one times I have told everyone that I had my J pretty early in my life and I am very proud of the young man he has become!! This kid to me is awesome!!! I just can't say enough times how proud I am of him!! He spent his entire summer weightlifting and doing a special Football passing league, which they dominated in!! So he went into the season being 1 of a few Sophomore's overall, and out of everyone freshman, sophomore's, junior's, & senior's he was at the beginning of the football season a strong player and was starting D on the Varsity team!! He did great, then he ended up playing offense as well so he was playing pretty much the entire game and it was wearing on him a bit. He was injured and out for a week, and after that he just was never put back into his normal positions fully. It's like one week he'd play the whole game and then the next he'd play half or bits and pieces... I don't understand it but it is what it is, right!?!?! So he gets a 2 week break and then will go full fledged into Basketball... Last year was not a good year for me during the season, I was extremely stressed out over personal conflict with the coach and him taking it out on J... I mean I literally had a stress migraine at least 3 days a week at that time, so I am REALLY hoping J is on another team and not that one...
So all stress aside I am a very proud mommy of a sophomore who has fantastic goals with his life and while I am so excited with the man he will become I am also saddened because I cannot believe how fast these years have flown by!!
So today was the day for picking up his class ring... Oh it is so awesome!! He designed it himself and while I am so proud of it and him, I am kind of sad too LOL!! I know, I know, I'm a big BABY!!
So here it is in all of it's Glory!!
