Where has the time gone?

Well since the last time I posted so much has happened. This year has flown by. This post is a combination of alot of things that I have yet posted about but have promised people that I would.

The first would be the FCA back to school bash. I'm really glad to have become a part of FCA (fellowship of christian athletes) this year. I have met so many new people through FCA who I have grown to love and cherish their friendships. I'm truly blessed to have found these people who are not out doing bad stuff.

My family laughs around my house because I am the Communicator for FCA which means that I am supposed to let everybody know about upcoming events by calling them or through myspace. They always say well they got the girl for the job because she does love to talk! Is there anything wrong with that? :] lol. .
I was so glad to see so many people turn out to this event. We truly had a great time and everyone went home knowing that you truly can stay out of trouble but still have a good time
Since I last posted, Brother Silas Ford has been down to our house for the weekend and brought along Jolee and Kyle K. We were so glad to have them staying with us. Of course I always love any time I get to spend with my Jolee Bug. She is so smart for her age. And Oh Boy is she a big help? She loved helping with the dishes. As I was laying down with her in my room reading to her, she was looking up on my wall and said "There's Jolee!" (She talks in 3rd person alot! :] haha) I was confused at first but then I realized that sure enough on my wall there was a picture of me and Jolee from Harmony Highlands 2 years ago. Now you try to tell me that that girl isn't a genius? :] We had a wonderful time with them. Next time we just need to get Tara down here too but maybe you can leave your antidepressent dog at home. :] ha.

As most of you know, our family is huge football fans. :] Whether it's the Gators or the Blue Darters! For all of you Florida High School Football Followers out there! That would be the 6A school that is currently #2 in the state. :] I"m not proud at all!

Alex Catron talking to Coach D and Coach Anderson. He is the kicker and he is a sophomore. He is such a crazy kid and I love him to death. He has truly been blessed with such a great gift.
Christi is my football buddy. She is one of the few that I sit with at the game that actually know what is going on and don't just stand up when everybody else is cheering. :] I"m not saying anything bad about those people. I used to be one of those until recently when I have started watching the Gator games with my daddy.

Last week, our football team traveled up to South Panola, Mississippi to play their football team. South Panola has not lost a game in more than 70 games so we went into the game knowing that if we were going to win we had to want it real bad and fight for it. Seeing as how we couldn't go to the actual game we all went over to the Bankson's house that Friday night to watch the game on ESPNU! Yep that's right ESPNU! How cool is that? I bet you your high school didn't play on ESPNU! Alright but anyways, I heard from the grape vine (aka Uncle Hugh) that South Panola was known in all of Mississippi. In fact that they are called the "University of South Panola".
It was such a neat experience to sit in front of the TV and be able to yell out your friends names as you saw them run down the field. It was a very intense game but we never lost hope for our Blue Darters. :] The final score of the game was 28-18. Unfortunately we lost but went down fighting for the Blue Darters. The following Monday all the talk around campus was the football game, even the teachers would get started talking about it in class and before they realized it they were already 10 minutes into class. :]
I tell you something my dad cracks me up at the stuff he says sometimes! I do feel for him sometimes being the only male in the house but that's ok because he gets to have his "guy talk" when Forrest comes down for the weekend. That way he actually has someone to talk to about football that actually knows what they are talking about. :] So Forrest thanks for being Papa Bear's football buddy! :]
In less than a month now I will no be "grillin' it". Which means that I will not have any braces! I'm so excited! :]
I'm also very excited about this weekend and the photoshoot with Kelly and Jim and the baby shower. Look back for pictures because I am deffinitely going to post those pictures. :]
