Cottage Hill Steelers Peanut C 2010 Playoff Game 1

Today was an exciting day for us. It was the first playoff game for all the Mobile Youth Football Conference teams. Well all except one team in our 4 year old Peanut C division. Navco Vikings had an extra bye week since there are only 7 teams in Peanut C and they are undefeated. They get to play next week.

Anyhow, it felt good not to have to be there until 9:30 am. All season we have had to wake up at 5:30 am and be at the parks by 7:00 am. All games have started at 8:30 am, so you could imagine how nice it was to sleep just a little longer. 7:40 am to be exact...LOL Little Ernest was up and ready for his game. The first morning he woke up and he got his football uniform on without having me scream and holler at him to hurry up.  Good thing, however, that my niece remembered that Ernest's football pads and helmet were in their car. They were leaving to my nephew's game at Eight Mile Park and called me, so it saved us from having  a very bad issue.  Especially since we had to play way out at Semmes Park. My nephews DJ and Man both play on the Cottage Hill Steelers Peanut B (5 year olds) team and they had to be at a different park. Sad that we couldn't get to see them play. They won their game today, by the way, against Saraland Bills. Score was 22-0. So proud of them!!! GO CH STEELERS!!!!

Ernest and His First Football Season

I know I have been slipping big time. This is my first time posting since the NFL season started. My bad for waiting until now to post about my little man, Ernest, playing football for the very first time with the Mobile Youth Football Conference (MYFC). For those who aren't friends with me on Facebook and Twitter, let me just say that we have had a ball. It's been exhausting, time consuming, and frustrating at times. Yet I am proud to be a football mom again. My oldest, Cordell, played football when he was younger for a moment but things didn't really work out on my part. Would have been nice to have kept him in. :-(
