When We’re Not Reading – It’s Texas, It’s Friday, What do you think?

Growing up in Texas, one thing is supposed to be as gold as the Gospel, and that’s what’s happening on Friday Night at high schools all over the state.  I was surrounded by this my whole life, but managed to only attend one game, and pretty much missed the whole extravaganza.  I never participated in the Homecoming business, never went to a dance, got one of those mums the south is famous for from a friend, but was just never into it.  Several times I showed up for a game, sang the national anthem with the choir, and then high tailed it out of there.  It wasn’t that I didn’t want to stay – I was just so damn busy.

I don’t want the kiddo to miss it.  Well, she can miss it if she wants, but I want her to at least have a chance to choose to not miss it.  But I also plan to home school.  So where does home school and good old fashion Texas High School Football have a chance to collide? In Andi-land, that’s where.  Also in many school districts where they allow home school students to try out for teams and be a part of the school’s organizations.

So… There’s a high school right down the road from our house, it’s Friday Night, my husband was out for the evening, and I found out there was a home game.  What do you think I decided to do?

(Actually, she stood in awe of the cheerleaders and then opted to color princesses while I tried to watch the game.)
