When the kids were younger (and fewer) we used to take them to at least one high school football game per season. I think it was when Mariposa was a preschooler that we realized that this tradition wasn't fun anymore. :o) And of course with sweet Gemma...and now Sedric...well, going as a family to a game is out of the question. (Although I bet a viral YouTube video could come out of it...just imagine, "Three-year-old runs out on the field and starts bossing around the players while baby brother runs away with the ball...")
But I still really want my kids to experience high school football games and all that comes with them. I have such great memories of football! And being homeschooled, the kids can't really be exposed to the fun of a game unless we arrange for it. So last month Marcus encouraged me to take the oldest 2 to his old stomping ground, Hare Field, to watch his alma mater's homecoming game.

Starbux before heading to the stadium.
That was part of the package. Or it was just
for my benefit. Either one.

to toss around. James throws a mean spiral, and Bunny
has a strong arm, too!

used to be the one on the stand, directing the band....
