Taking me back...

Tonight I went to the last home football game for the 8th grade. Wow. That's really all I can say. I found the whole experience quite humorous. It was a little chillier than I thought it might be, so I left at the end of the 3rd quarter. We were up 22-8 over Stone County with 1 minute left in the 3rd quarter, but as I was leaving I heard a great uproar. Stone had run the kick-off back for a touchdown. Uh-oh. I'll have to find how it turns out before class in the morning, so I can prove to my students I really was there (even though about 4 of my students saw me). I teach about 15 football players and they've been begging me all season to come. Tonight was my last opportunity so I left my fatigue at home and went anyway. I'm glad I did; I just really had to remember that jr. high football is not college!

Even though only about 4 of your students saw you there, they will ALL know you were there. The kids really love it when their teachers show up for sporting events, plays, etc. Good job! Keep up the good work and I hope you have a great day!
