Football, Football, and More Football

I thought I would give you an update on Christian's football team, the Ft. Belvoir Bulldogs. Last Saturday, they played the Gum Spring Panthers which by far has been their toughest game. The Panthers were undefeated and we knew it would be a hard game for the boys. At halftime it was still 0 - 0. Then in the third quarter we were able to score a touchdown to make it 7 -0. That is the way it stayed. Our defense did a great job holding them off. Now, our team is 3 - 1. It looks like we might be making the playoffs. Christian is really enjoying being a part of this team and has learned a lot from the other players and coaches. The other news is that Joe was able to come home for a couple of weeks due to some military snafu's so he was able to be a part of the "chain gang" at the game on Saturday. He will be leaving to go back out on his deployment some time at the end of this week or next week. It's on a day to day basis right now, but we will deal with it when it comes, but for right now it is nice to have him home.
