More Football, BonFire at Joes and a little school

Lots to talk about, but ill start with school to get it out of the way. Its pretty different and ill get some photos soon so everyone at home can see. Ive had my first tests and quizzes over the last couple weeks. So much different than NCEA! Loving the multi-choice, its great! Ill talk more about school once I get around to photos.

Its been two weeks since my last post so Varsity has had two games and JV has had one. Varsity had there first away game of the season. We traveled to Brookhaven in Columbus, it was around a two hour drive, luckily I slept the whole way. Unfortunately the game didn't go our way and we lost. JV didnt have a game on Saturday because Brookhaven couldn't make it down to Fairfield. We were at home again the next week, which is always fun! Home games are a blast. We played Sycamore in our first GMC (Greater Miami Conference) game of the year. Unfortunately it didn't go our way again. Since Varsity was at home JV traveled to Sycamore for our game on Saturday, and the result was good. We came out with a 12-6 win! Here are some pictures from the game. Im #77

Later that night I was invited to a Bonfire at my friend Joe's. He plays football as well. It was really fun and I got to meet some new people! We started off just chilling playing some Xbox. Once more people arrived we went out back and played an intense game of backyeard vollyball which got pretty competitive! Once dark we got the fire going and made smores over the fire! Much better than making them in the microwave! The night ended with my first Taco Bell Experience. Here are some pictures.
Brandan playing Chubby Bunnies. I think he got like ten marshmallows in his mouth at once!

Me and my Taco Bell!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Last Sunday was also another family fun day Sunday. We watched the Bengals win their first regular season game! Wooohoooo! Marc and I were decked out in our Bengals gear. Unfortunately we didn't get a photo. Will have to get one next time. It was great to watch them win while we ate nachos!

Ill post again soon!

Friday Night Football and Kings Island

My first Friday at school was another new experience. Thursday night after football practice our jearsys were handed out and that's what we wear to school on Friday (Game Day). This is me before school!

Yes I know our room is a mess but it has gotten cleaner since I took this! Once school was over the team met in the cafeteria for our pre game meal. Once we ate we met with our position coaches to go over a few last minute things. We then headed down to the locker room to get the rest of our uniform and get ready to head over to the stadium. After an intense game, fought right down to the last seconds we lost 24-21 to Beavercreek. On saturday morning it was JV (Junior Varsity) turn to play. Since Varsity played at home we traveled up to Beavercreek for the game. It was another pretty close game but unfortunatly we lost. My second Friday was even better than my first! We again wore our jerseys to school.

This is me and my friend Kristyn who is once of the teams trainers. The game was again a hard fought match but this week we came out on top beating the Piqua Indians 24-21. The next morning JV took the fairly long bus ride up to Piqua. By the time the game started it felt like it was 100 degrees out (around 40 degrees C). At half time the we were down 9-0 but we fought back ending up with a 20-16 win!

I'm loving football! Especially the Friday night games! The atmosphere is amazing with the band, cheerleaders and wild student section! Next week we travel up to Brookhaven in Columbus for Varsity to play their first away game.

The Sunday after my first week of school we had another family fun day. We went to Kings Island, an amusement park in Greater Cincinnati!

Unfortunately we couldn't get someone to take a picture of the whole family but these were close.

It was a great day! Marc and I spent most of the day riding all the rides. My favorite was the "Firehawk"! The picture taken during the ride was so funny we just had to buy it!

Schools going well and Im making lots of friends and football has been great! Ill keep y'all updated when anything exciting comes up again!
