Thursday Football

Thursday night was a high school football game. Jordan & I went to help the band get on the field and I like to watch Mason play. Doug had another commitment so that left the 3 youngest to go with me or stay at home. Kelsie was adamant that she go to the game. I reluctantly took her. She loved it. Who can complain when you get to be this close to this field.

The only time I worried about what would happen was when I had to help the band. The parents are asked to bring in the pit stuff (big drums, bells, music stands, mela something etc.) 5 minutes before halftime the parents gather and are told what to take out and where to put it. I didn't want Kelsie to get hurt by the instruments so my instructions to her was as soon as I said go she was to go sit on the blue bench (where the football players sit) and save me a seat. We left our seats in the stand and as I was getting my instructions I couldn't find Kelsie. I asked Jordan where she was and he pointed her out to me. She was sitting right where I had asked her to go she was just a little earlier then I had thought.

She had the best seat in the house. She couldn't have cared less about the football game behind her but she had the perfect view of the cheerleaders. She was in heaven. After our band responsibilities were over she ran up and down the bleachers. She slept really well that night. I took video of Mason playing and I'll post it if I can figure out how. :) Just in case you were wondering, we won the game with a score of 54-0.

  1. Ok, that is just impressive. I can't remember the last time we won a football game. And way to go Kelsie, it's great to be obedient AND brave!
