When Andrew and Zachary were starting out in football, the big carrot held out to their teams was that the final game in playoffs would be in the Metrodome in downtown Minneapolis.
I can't begin to tell you how huge of a thing this was....to...
"play! in! the! Dome!"
And now it's going to happen again in the State Semi-finals on Saturday!
This time, both boys will be on the field.
But just for a walk down memory lane...
A friend sent me these....her son (8) is standing next to Andrew (number 5).
From the sober faces, I think the above shot was before the game.
Hopefully we have another win "in the Dome" this weekend, but regardless, these pictures reminded me of the blessing of friends who go way back to the beginning of things with you.
Those kinds of friends are treasures from God and just can't be replaced.
Yet another thing to be thankful for in this season of Thanksgiving!
