It’s the first weekend of high school football…and I get tears in my eyes.

How did it go by so fast?

I remember when Michael first started playing on Thursday nights in middle school.  I was so proud to be his Mom. It seems like yesterday.

And then all of a sudden there he was, a big junior in high school, starting center and long snapper for the Ft. Worth Country Day Falcons, who won the conference championship that  year.  I remember looking out at my little boy, who stood on the field after the final game, with tears streaming down his face.

He was so happy.  It was a happy moment for our whole family.

So to all the football Moms out there, and all the Moms and Dads whose kids will be playing in the band or on the sidelines cheering during this fun filled football season, enjoy every moment.

It goes by fast.
