So Monday started a new era for young Jacob. Welcome to the world of football.

Jake went to his first football game--a Rattlers Playoff Game (Arena)--when he was 3 months old. In August that year, he went to his first ASU games (several) when he was 8-9 months. That year, he was on my shoulders watching Blue Ridge in the title games against Boys Ranch then later, Payson. The last 5 years, he has been on my hip working the chains in Wickenburg. Add in a Monday night game when Steve Young's career ended and Sun Devils games... yeah, he has seen plenty of football.

Now he is a football PLAYER. He has never seen the work that goes into it. He watches games and has not been through a practice. Seeing him soaked in sweat and seeing Tera watching practice and keep asking me "How many of those running things are they gonna do?" "Isn't that a bit much for a 10 year old?" "Isn't that coach being too hard on them?"

It is so fun to think of him as the six year old crying halfway down the mountain at Sunrise or the toddler on my shoulders at a high school game. 5th Grade started Monday. I feel older every day.

Hey cuz! Thanks for the tip! I have the razor v3m from verizon. So far I like the phone, sort of. I was able to sync with my pc and upload music, etc. I have not been able to download the music from my phone to my pc or add my custom ringtones. So, I will try the link and see if I can figure it out. Oh ya, unfortunately I dropped it on the wood floor and the screen broke! Any idea where I can get a new screen? I have only had this for a few weeks and am sooooooo disappointed in its non-durability and low battery life. I could kick myself for not buying the insurance!
