Woodcreek Football

Tanner decided that instead of playing high school soccer, he would like to play high school football. We have tried really had to steer our boys away from football. Both of my brothers played football at a young age and there always seemed to be a lot of injuries. We have told the boys that if they wanted to play football, they needed to wait until high school. We were a little nervous for Tanner. Lots of people told him that he wasn't going to get a chance to play because he had never played before. There were plenty of kids who had played for the last several years. . Lets just say, Tanner had plenty of playing time this year and did fairly well. He had the chance to play every single games. Their team was  5-5 for the season. Here are a few highlights.

 Tanner right after he scored his first high school touchdown! Woot - Woot!
There is our #11(in white) working hard.

 This was our last game(and it was at home) of the season. Look at the size of this kid they had Tanner up against. He had about 9 inches on Tanner.

 Brody, Garrett, Tanner and Carter.
These boys loved going to all of the games. Tanner's biggest fans and the frequent patrons at the snack bar.
We loved watching Tanner and the entire freshman team play this season. Tanner is already super excited and pumped up for next season. As one of the coaches was saying a few words to Tanner as we were leaving, he told tanner that he was the rookie of the year. Way to go, Tanner! Way to  go, Woodcreek!

Another week. Another Sunday. Another What I Wore Sunday post.

Todays outfit is brought to you by:
LOFT - Grey/white polka dot blouse
Down East  Basics - Grey fitted shirt
New York and Co. -  Grey skirt
Target - yellow cardigan
TJ Maxx (Nine West) - Grey heels
 the best part of the outfit was the necklace that  I scored at Kohl's.
It was on clearance and ended up being the perfect color/accessory to complete the outfit.
Love when that happens!

Today was our Visiting Teaching Conference/lesson. It was awesome to have all of the sisters there. The YW and YM were awesome about stepping up and teaching the Primary children. I loved having our RS room so full today. So much love and definitely a sea of beautiful faces. The theme of our Conference was My Sisters Hands. We talked about what our sisters hands and our own hands do...service, pray for our sisters, and  how each of us are different and to be able to recognize those differences(young hands, old hands, worn hands, etc...) and still  love and serve those sisters that we have been asked to visit teach.
Even though it was fast Sunday, we still had to have a treat...that they could eat after they broke their own fast. I baked chocolate crackles and made rice crispy treats. I bagged them up and attached this quote to each treat.
"In visiting teaching we reach out to each other. Hands often speak as voices can't. A warm embrace conveys volumes. A laugh together unites us. A moment of sharing refreshes our souls. We cannot always lift the burden of one who is troubled, but we can lift her so she can bear it well."
Elaine L. Jack RS General President 190-1997

I am so thankful to be part of such an amazing church that has a wonderful organization for women. The Relief Society allows us to feel included and loved. I love each one of the sisters in our ward and am so thankful for all that they do and the service and love that they render.

I can't believe October has come and gone. I can't believe that it is already November. That is all!
