_____Another loss. This time our boys scored more points. Lost 22-36. This team had beaten one of the teams that we had lost to. Here Calvin was running the ball. He held on to it inspite of being "tackled" by his arms. He carried a few times in the 5th quarter. He played the complete A game at center on offense and linebacker on defense, except for a couple times he dropped back to safety. He played other positions in the 5th quarter. Last night he was on the receiving team too and carried once and did ok. There are now less kids than started out the year, so not as many subs.

_______Our boys lost another one. 20 - 6 this time. Even bigger kids caring the ball tonight. Jerry thinks we need a better lunch program. Dave can't figure out why we have smaller guys, as we have the best donut shop around! Calvin was on the field all the time, except the receiving team. Even played both directions for the 5th quarter, then he got to carry the ball and was corner, instead of linebacker. They were down 3 players since the game last week, two for discipline and one concussion. These pictures are the first from my new camera. I'm learning!!!!

___The 7th grade football season started with a game against North Polk at Alleman. They lost 14-20 against a bigger team. Calvin (#30 with red and white shoes, black socks) was center and middle linebacker. He was in all the game except for two plays, when the receiving team was out. We were threatening a touchdown when time ran out. So the game just ended at the wrong time. Calvin was a running back for the 5th quarter, when the B team took over, and had a touchdown. He had one quarterback sack in the regular game plus some other good plays. ____Then we were off to a car show in Ames.

____We headed out after lunch for today's journey. We checked out the new resurfacing on the highway to Perry and checked out the new high bridge on the bike trail from a distance. I would really like to see it up close at night with the lights on the arches that go across. Then it was off to Madrid to check out the car show there. I walked around for a bit before returning to the car and my lawn chair and book. That way Pop could look as long as he wished. We went north out of Madrid, as their road is recently resurfaced also. Pop had worked on that road when it had been resurfaced before. And no, it didn't make him feel old that the road he had worked on was being redone. He's had other projects that have been changed too. And he reminded me that most of my past residents had been "covered up" too.
