Today launched the beginning of the football season for three of my grandchildren. Greg and I joined a happy throng in the stadium bleachers to cheer on Joey, Oliver and Aubrey. The overcast day and slightly cooler temps hinted at fall, and by the time Saturday football ends, we will be dressing for a different season.
Joey is a 7th grader this year and playing on the Tigers junior high A team. This morning’s scrimmage was for fun and practice. His official game night is Tuesday.
Oliver is in 5th grade and plays in the Tiger Saturday Football League. His first game went into overtime this afternoon. They lost, however he did well and this team has played together for several seasons. It’s onward and upward from here.
And Aubrey is a 4th grader. This is her second year as a Tiger cheerleader. She cheers for the 5th grade team that includes Oliver and my, how she throws her heart into those high kicks and sharp moves.

To commemorate the day, I had fun creating a video. I’m always trying new things, and while technology can pose a challenge, I’m willing to experiment and learn. This video was a snap to create, using iVideo on my iPhone. It has an easy to use format that allows a mix of photos and videos. I can add music from the app’s selections or chose a song from my library.
Saturday Football…it’s a weekly event for the next two months. As often as I can, I will be there, yelling Go Big Blue!
