It’s that time again! Football practice starts Monday. Early mornings. Late evenings. Games on Friday. Breakfast Saturday. It’s hectic. It’s chaotic. It’s so much more than football.
Tonight we rewarded the guys who busted it all summer in the weight room with a steak dinner. This is the aftermath. Such a fun way to kick off the new season! Yes, really!
Football season does mean long hours and late nights for my husband. It does mean he’s not at my beck and call quite as much as I’d like him to be. It does mean 10 weeks of crazy busyness for the whole family.
You know what? I’m good with that! Around here, football season is so much more than the game. Football is family. It’s ice cream socials in my backyard. It’s breakfast at o-dark-thirty on Saturday mornings, dedicated young men sprawled out on my living room floor. It’s linemen and receivers holding my 4 year old’s dolly because she told them to. It’s my kids squealing that “our friends are here!” when any of the boys show up at the door.
Football season is a Finer Thing! (Remind me of that when I’m grouchy and grumbly and dog tired in a few weeks, okay?)
What Finer Things are you celebrating this week? Link up and let us know!
