This blog is about our family, who have dealt with the loss of two sons with Muscular Dystrophy, the adoption of a son diagnosed with Agenesis of Corpus Callosum and the birth our a healthy little girl. It's a crazy life, but we are loving it.

Friday Night Lights

Here in Texas, we have a tradition that comes every Friday night, starting around the end of August. And it just aint right if you don't participate. We live in a small town, so the majority of the people show up.

This night was extra special, because my Emily participated.

What is it? High School Football! Of course!

High school football in Texas is a way of life.

And our town is no different. I think the whole town came out for the first game of the season. It was seriously crowded.

But my mind & my eyes weren't on the game.

They were on this little cheerleader.

Emily went to a Spirit Maker camp this summer where the Middle School & High School cheerleaders taught all the little Spirit Makers cheers and dances. Best part, the little girls get to cheer at a home game.

Patiently waiting for the game to start.

Even Ethan was excited about the game.

Emily did a great job.

After the game, we went to Dairy Queen for some sweet treats. And...

A little goofiness.

This was my mint chocolate chip shake.

We all had a good time. Emily was so cute and she had such a good time, she was in a silly mood the rest of the night.

 What made this even more special was when Emily told me sometimes she forgets a cheer, but she prays and God helps her remember the cheers. Oh, this mamma is so proud!

And... I have to brag on Ethan. He got an excellent in his behavior in school for the past two weeks. One of his teachers stopped Mark and told him how good Ethan has been in school so far,  he has been doing good with his work and has some good decisions. Believe me when I tell you I was on cloud nine the rest of the day.
