Who Am I?!....

So yes I have been slacking, I mean busy lately...I promise I have been here and reading everyone's posts, sorry about the lack of commenting on said reading! I have been a lil bit busy lately. This is the time of year when I don't get to share much rodeo related because well...there's no rodeo'n going on! You know the drill, 2 kiddo's with different interests and the Fall season brings on Football for J which I know most of my posts have consisted of lately :) But in all truth we REALLY do love football! I love watching my kid play, it's absolutely one of the most fulfilling things I've ever felt...To watch him do something that is so rewarding and fun for him!

J's Varsity football team has had a rough many of years holding season records of 2-7 for a long time! But this year as of right now with 2 regular games left in the season they are 6-1!! WHOO-HOO!!! And truly their 1 loss was simply just bad luck and non-team playing, they really should have beat that team but they haven't let it haunt them in any way. Three weeks ago marked their biggest game of the season they went into the game against a team that was undefeated and had 2 running backs that were darn near impossible for every other team to stop! They had scores against other teams like 58-15, 28-0, 47-13, 55-7....Then we played them and WON in overtime with a score of 22-21....UH YEAH! Nail biter for sure! J's team literally stopped their runningbacks right in their tracks! The best one on their team was averaging about 220 yards a game and J's teams defense stopped him around 95 yards! Talk about amazing game play and super awesome coaching!

J's Tackle on the *BEST* runningback in the state!!

Overtime WIN~!!

So this weeks game is against the league's top runner right now who is standing at 7-0 with scores on average over 60 points to ZERO!!! SO needless to say these boys have their work cut out for them!! UGHH will be such a tough game to watch!

One of J's interceptions!!

Catch almost good for a touchdown!!

Nice tackle!

And most importantly PLEASE pray for J and his teammates for NO injury's! These boys are ruthless!! So my mommy heart is a little bit scared!

That's GOOD for a TOUCHDOWN!!

As my Boy would say "nough said"...

SO the main reason for my absence after these last few weeks of great football...That night after the super victory 3 weeks ago...We came home to find our basement flooded...Yep...Water heater blew out...I'll give all the gory details in my next post!


  1. Girl, Life is CRAZY! Sounds like Football rules in the fall!! Awesome pictures - yes, I am up at 2:00am! Wrong sinus meds! Are you doing Heartland this year?


  2. Pig escapes, exciting football, and water heater disasters ... yup, I'd say those are great excuses for absence.

    Don't forget to LMK when you come back to my neck of the woods.

  3. Glad you are enjoying football...not so glad about the water in your basement. Hope you got it all cleaned up and it didn't cause too much damage. :) Come say hi.

  4. Michelle enjoy those kiddo's and these moments with them. All us moms know that it ends way too soon as they grow up and move on to their own lives.

    Ugh on the water heater... that really sucks!

  5. Glad to hear that J's team is doing well.
    Sorry to hear about the water heater however.
    Hope it did not do much damage to things.
    Have a great day

  6. Glad to hear they are having a fun season! No injuries, no injuries, no injuries!!! :)
