Grand Social, all it takes is a little sun.

All  it takes is a little sun.
A couple of warm days can sure bring folks outside for some fun.
Even the shorts on, at ready for some sun.

Son John on right with grandson Ben playing a little
Corn Hole 

GS Ben is recovering from left shoulder surgery and he is trying to toughen up to play his senior year of football.
I was talking to him yesterday begging him to be careful but he has no fear.
Football it is in late summer and the coming year.
Ouch all the bangs and bruises give me the goose bumps.
Can't stand to see my grands hurt.

Come on over and join more grands.

Said a prayer that he'd be ready to go come football season. Is that how he got his injury in the first place? How wonderful to see you folks out enjoying spring-like weather.

They are such beautiful young men. I hope he heals fast. It's funny when you are young you feel indestructable and fearless.
I could not even ride a ferris
wheel now. Enjoy the warm sun. we had it a few days, now rain and the BURHHHH cold again.

Oh no Peggy! I couldn't stand to let him play either! My son was asked to be on the football team by his gym teacher. My son is 6'1" (and growing!) and 260 pounds! He is a big boy and he said my son started working out with the team all summer. At the end of the summer the real practices started and he sprained his leg while getting hit (clearly, he was a line backer) and that was his last practice! I didn't say he had to quit, he decided to because that one hit rattled his head and hurt his leg and he said "that's it for me!!" I was so relieved! Good luck to your Grandson!!

Visiting from The Grand Social. I would not be thrilled with him wanting to play now either, but the warmer weather sure is enticing. I must say, I was not sad when my son gave up football and concentrated on basketball and track. Less contact made this mama happy.

I would be a very nervous Grandma if I had a grandchild in football or any of the hard contact sports. Hope he makes a full recovery!

I like your new header. My ex-husband's Nonnie always said when you see a redbird, you should close your eyes and make a wish. I still do that to this day (of course, we don't see any cardinals in Kuwait :) My oldest will be heading off to college this year. Yikes! So much planning to do before now and then. Hope all is well with you. Best wishes, Tammy
