Thursday Night Lights

October in most places if full of Friday Night Lights... but for the family of a middle school athletic director, life is about Thursday Night Lights.

Chris' school had their last football games of the season against their district rival, and the last game of the season always occurs at one of the district high schools.  The game is a pretty big deal for the middle schoolers who have worked so hard all season.

There are two games -- a seventh-grade game and an eighth-grade game, and Tracey Ann and I stayed for most of the first half of the seventh-grade game.  It is hard when her bedtime routine starts at 5:30 or 6:00, and the game's kickoff was 6:00.

But, we made it out to support the kids, and it was such a great night.  Both of Chris' teams lost, but it was such a great fall, October, football night.  It was damp, and chilly, but not cold, and just everything fall football weather is supposed to be.

Our family loves October!
