Happy Birthday Aron....A little late

We had family over for dinner and cake. He had two friends over. The next day we went shooting. I actually went with them. We all had a lot of fun.

Who reads anyway?

Okay so it's been awhile since I've posted anything last and there's LOT'S to tell but who reads this thing anyway?
Okay first and far most football season is over with Marcus. It was an awesome year for his first year. I will post pictures later. Anway, he walked away playing every game starting and finishing. Only two injuries. The first a sprained ACL in the knee. He ended up on crutches and a knee brace for two weeks. That is all healed now. A week and half ago he had an away game in Page which is about 4hrs away. I am so gratefull that Dave decided to drive down. He really wanted to go because they changed Marcus's position in the game to whatever that guy's called that runs the ball. Marcus isn't a fast runner but he's hard to get down. So let's go back to earlier that morning. Marcus asked if I was going and I said no I have to work. He said what would you do if I get hurt? I said good thing your dad will be there. So I get a call at 6pm that night. Dave called to say that they were in the hospital. I was like yeah right. About three times I said this until I actually heard the Dr come into the room.
The report......a broken collar bone! I talked to Marcus and all could say was "Well I got a 18 yard run." Aparently he was running the ball with two guys on him trying to get him down and a third guy jumped on him from behind. He said he heard a crack, but no pain. They went in for the second play and the other team called a time out. That's when the pain set in and he walked off the field. Dave said that he was walking to the field when the trainer took off his shirt and pads not knowing what was wrong, Marcus was screaming. So needless to say there's not much you can do for that. He was on some heavy drugs for three days the pain was so bad. I'ts getting better. He's in a soft brace and sling for three weeks. He goes back to the Orthopedic surgeon on the 7th of Nov. They will do more xrays and take off the soft brace and then he will be in the sling for three more weeks. I will try to keep you posted.
On that note the last few game for the Varsity team they always pull up the best 4 players from the Freshman team. Marcus was picked and announced at their last game Wednesday night.
He's pretty bummed out since he won't beable to play because of the broken collar bone.
He has a football banquet on the 3rd of Nov. that we will be attending.
