Toughest Loss of the Season

Steven had his final football game this morning.

It was a close game all along. Really a great game.


Scottie was amazing!

But the Falcons scored a touchdown that put them in the lead with only 2 minutes left in the game, and that remained the final score: 38-30.

It's a little hard to enjoy a silver medal moment when the team standing twenty yards across are being awarded gold medals.
.
For me the best part was when we pulled up to the house afterwards: Steven took the time to thank Ken and I for supporting him through the season and coming to all of his games. Thanks for making me feel like a winner, Steve. You're a champ.

Oh man, good for Steven. Good for you and Ken for being such a great support.

Some losses really sting, don't they?

Sorry for the hard loss--but it sounds like you got a little sweet from Steven to go with the bitter! Way to go!

Steve is such a good kid. But he is hardly even a kid any more, really.

Is that Rundle Park near Bowness? It looks so familiar.
What a great experience for all of you. Elder Wirthlin gave a great talk about losing:-)

Well, tell him congratulations on what sounds like a season well-played!

Very cute Halloween pictures. I agree that the mustache made the mountie costume perfect! Hey, that tiger looks just like my high school mascot. Very cute costume, and well worth $5 per kid.
