Crazy???

Most people that know us already have made up their minds about us.  Yes, we're crazy.  Crazy enough to drive a round trip of 1000 miles for an hour.  But that hour was very important to us, we were able to watch Andrew, our seven year old grandson, play football in his Pop Warner League in South Carolina.


It was a hoot to watch the little football players on the large field, they looked like bobble head dolls with their helmets and pads on.


They take football very seriously in South Carolina.  Mom Heather and Dad Brian watched with eagle eyes while dressed in team jerseys with Andrew's number 88 on them.


Heather likes to put Andrew's number 88 on her cheek.  Owie got in on the act,


and "Mimi" Marti did too!


Andrew's team (The Titans) won the game and they have had an undefeated season so far.  After the game, Marti rushed down to the field to hug Andrew and escort him back to our seats.


Brian listened carefully to what Andrew said about the game.  They both are enjoying football together.


It was a great time and worth every mile we drove to see  Andrew and Owie.  They're growing up so fast and we don't want to miss a minute of it.  Another reason we're looking forward to fulltiming, we won't have to rush back and forth and we'll be able to spend more time with all our grandkids, wherever they are!

Thanks for visiting and feel free to leave a comment.

  6. You are not crazy...you are GREAT grandparents!!

    There is nothing more important than our families. You have a great family, so here's hoping you get that house sold so you can visit them without doing so much long distance traveling!!

  7. Crazy is as crazy does. Now crazy might have been sitting home while there was a football game to go to.

  9. I'll agree that y'all are CRAZY but now it's FOR SURE...y'all are crazy about sewing good seeds into that young man. For that, there will be great reward...not to mention the love and joy you experience along the way!

  10. You certainly may be crazy but it has nothing to do with driving 1000 miles to watch your grandson play football. I think that makes you a special grandparent.

    I used to "fly" from Dallas to Portland just to watch mine play. Not so sure who is the craziest but it's a memory in the making and something your grandkids will never forget!

    Good for you!
