Okay, I have been hoping for rain the past few days because the cracks in my yard as large enough to lose a small child.  The rains of the past few days have been a welcome relief to the yard and most of Central Texas, but there is a one major casualty – FOOTBALL PRACTICE!!

Three straight days now the boys football practice has been canceled and it is really starting to bug me.  How I long for a couple of hours in the sweltering heat – for the crack of helmets – for the cheers when one of their teammates does a nice move or good tackle.  I am jonesing for the sight of my boys busting their butts and improving not only their physical prowess, but their attitude, determination and just plain ol’ grit.

I know I will regret it, but I have to say…. “rain, rain go away – come again another day.”
