Tonight we had our "last" football banquet. Very bittersweet for this mom. It was a difficult season because Phil hurt is shoulder in the fourth game of the season. After that he was done, no more football. He has played since 5th grade and I think I was more disappointed then him. I look forward to the football season, watching him get the ball and run for his life to the goal line. But the Lord had different plans for Phil this season. It is also his throwing arm for baseball and we didn't want him to injure it more and not be able to play this spring.
Joel already put his third varsity football on his letter jacket. Each senior got his own football too.
