Are you ready for some Football?

The weather is cooling down a bit - you know, 80s for us. School is in session for Ericlee. And with the cooler autumn nights comes football season. This weekend we enjoyed two football games supporting Fresno Christian athletes. Friday night we met Ericlee at the high school football game. (His Cross Country team also competed Friday night with 3 of 9 athletes getting medals.)
Now that Meilani is so much more interactive she loved watching the football game, imitating the cheerleaders with her own dancing, eating veggies & dip with Nana and Papa, and, of course, digging in the dirt and sand. (The long jump pit near the football field makes for a great sandbox!) The great thing about Fresno Christian games is the abundance of kids for Meilani to play with and follow. She had her own little entourage of girls chasing her down the dirt track and helping her build sand castles.
Saturday night was a full family football affair. Ericlee was working at the game, running the clock and serving as security. Meilani and I joined him in the press box for the peewee and junior football games. The press box has a great view of all the action. Meanwhile, Nana Maria and Papa Doug helped selling tickets at the gate. We all enjoyed a beautiful sunset and a fun night with our Fresno Christian community.
