It's Homecoming! Go WCHS!


So today is the 2nd day of blogging for this blog virgin! It is Friday Whaa Whoo! and the boys have a half day. Since I am not at work, everyone has been helping out getting the boys to and from school for me. They are awesome. (Thanks Bryce and Jennifer!). Tonight is a very exciting football game. As all of you may know, Ryan coaches varsity football for one of the local high schools, can I get a shout out for the Wildcats! GO WCHS! and tonight is their homecoming game against their in-district rivals, Valley Vista Monsoon. We are very excited about tonight! As well as being excited, it is also a bitter sweet night. You see, last years homecoming king and varsity football player, Justin, just lost his mom to breast cancer last week. It has been a short, hard battle but she went to our Heavenly Father on Tuesday 10/14. So in honor of Justin and memory of his mom, all the football players (I am so proud of them) are wearing a breast cancer sticker on their helmet tonight and all the coaches and wives are wearing pink ribbons. So please say a prayer for all those that are struggling or lost their struggle to this nasty disease. But on a happy ending note....GO WILDCATS!!

That is a great tribute for that young man, how difficult to lose your mom. Being is the Father's Hands--wonderful for his mom. How did the game go? We are a hockey family but you know that.
