Mr. Football

2 Timothy 2: 5

Well, I know for a lot of you it's the middle of summer, but here in my house we are literally gearing up for football season.   My baby boy is headed to high school this year and high school football training started last spring. In just a few days football camp begins, and looking ahead at the calendar, football won't end until December! Fortunately for him, I love football (and I guess my son's ok too!). I'm so proud of the young man my son is becoming.  He has been volunteering at a camp this summer and he is working on his Honors English project for the new school year as well. I'm truly looking forward to seeing all that God has in store for my handsome guy!

Last night we had to cut my boy's hair (another Sampson and Delilah moment!) so he would be comfortable in a football helmet. It looks great! Bruce, at Messana's Salon and Spa, cut two of my kid's hair yesterday. (I can't wait to show you my daughter's hair, but that's for another post).  We also had to order him his practice gear a few weeks ago, and he has grown so much over the last year, new cleats are on the way. Not to be outdone...Momma needs some fan gear!!  Our Rec. Football colors were orange, navy and white. This year, I need black, gold, and white (a bit of a dilemma for me because I'm a Ravens fan and our arch nemesis are the Steelers, so...) . Here are a few pics of my guy, his new cleats and some cute things I can't wait to wear on the sidelines.

After selfie (looks thrilled!)

cool new cleats we ordered from Dicks.
This dress is from Spunkwear. They are a really great local company that makes athletic and "sideline" clothes out of  swimwear fabric. Totally comfortable and fashionable! Check out their website. 

This great skort has the Maryland flag print on it. Love it!
