NCS Crusaders



I thought the bag was cool and then I turned it around!










Wow!! That's really cool.





James is playing on a 7/8 grade tackle football team representing his new school. We know 3 of his coaches and they are wonderful Godly men who all have sons on the team.

This is a new experience for us. James has never played organized football, we didn't do the Pop Warner thing. He is in great shape and the coaches are teaching fundamentals so he is having a blast. He is making nice friends and we are getting reacquainted with old friends from our old church.

He is a lineman right now.

I'll try to get a picture of him in his full pads. That starts on Wednesday. Pray it cools down a bit.

quoting Vince Lombardi ??? didn't Ditka ever say anything quotable?

that's about all the football you'll get out of me, except...R.O.W.D.I.E...that's the way...

sometimes I can't believe we are twins, you sports-aholic (did you see Swan Lake on PBS last night? heehee)

Very good Janice. I'm impressed that you even knew Ditka's name. His quotables may not be appropriate for my blog. hahaha.

Yoohoo. I took ballet lessons. Remember?

Let's go to The Nutcracker in December!!

You're never a loser until you quit trying.

What's the difference between a 3-week-old puppy and a sportswriter? In 6 weeks, the puppy will stop whining.
