My oldest son (15) has been in marching band since 5th grade. This past December he told me he was quitting band and going out for football! Needless to say I was in shock. Told him I would support him in whatever he wanted to do (truthfully, I thought he would change his mind). HE DIDN'T!! I swear he's grown 3 inches and put on 20 pounds since January! He played in the spring jamboree this past Friday and did good! I am so proud of him.
And of course, I have it all on video. I was so nervous for him, I rode to the game (3 hours away) with my parents and knitted a scarf for the coach's wife.
