Zack and football

So as everyone who has been there in my line of fire I have told them about Zack starting high school. I am freaking out because my oldest son is in HIGH SCHOOL. I know everyone who has kids goes through every first that freaks them out and I still have LOTS more to go. This one though is depressing me more than any before. I have realized that he will be gone in 4 years. I was talking to him today and we looked at as the lifetime of friends of ours who have 4 year olds. Anyway, he is playiing JV football. He has grown so much and is looking like a young man to me and not a little boy. There are so many things I could say about him but we will save that one for when he graduates.
This blog is about his scrimmage in Franklin County. He did really well. He isn't first string YET but he is working on it. By the way they won the scrimmage by like 7 TD's to their one. :) I have yelled so much this week during football that my throat is soar and last night I lost my voice. Dylan hasn't even had his first game. ALthough varsity opened last night and beat Graham 34-29.

This is Zack and Cody warming up before. You can see in the background and shorts Henry's godson and my van!
I like this picture it has Henry and Zack.
Look at him blocking that guy. He went up against one guy that wasn't much smaller than my dear husband and I got a little scared. He was on one play that put him in place to carry the ball and the other team kept getting off-sides and they finally went to something else.....
Zack getting ready.... He needs to let a little of his mom come out in him.
Cody, Deanco and Zack

My boy has at some point grown up on me..... UGH

GIRL! I totally understand. We took 1,2 & 3 to school this morning and after dropping off #1, the last to be dropped off, we looked at each other and said, "I can't believe he will be in high school next year". How did it ever fly by so quickly? We are doing football also. BUSY BUSY BUSY! Hope you are doing well. Hugs from Texas!

Jared is playing tackle football this year. Yikes! He is an offensive lineman and defensive linebacker. Pray for him (and his momma...tears up my nerves!!!)

Zach looks so grown up! I know you all are so proud of him.
