Rain is not always bad news . . . not when you've got a cool umbrella! What do you do when it looks like rain for the first "home" football game of our local Catholic high school??
Find your accessories, of course! Grab that umbrella, a doggie and a little lamb and you're all set. Well, if your Miss M, you're ready! And since it hadn't actually started raining yet, just getting the umbrella out meant that someone needed to put it up and prance around with it a bit! Leave it to a 7-year old to make an umbrella fun!
While we don't have any kids playing on the team or even in the high school, the home football games are a social occasion for the grade-school group! Finally, last Friday it was time for the first home game, so you can bet we made plans to attend.
So, here's what we did at the game . . . ate hot dogs, popcorn and ring pops. While Mr. Tennis watched the game, I kept an an eye on Maddy and her friends - they joined the other kids and did cartwheels and handstands on the track surrounding the field. Yeah, they were really paying attention! ;) Our team was ahead, so when it really started to rain and lightning (!) at half-time, we booked! But, it was loads of fun. Next Friday evening -- homecoming -- we'll be there! :)
