Ugh, it’s Monday…….
Why does the weekend have to go so fast?
Football. The Judge Bulldogs lost to the Wasatch Wasps 31-28. We were tied @ 28 with 4.5 seconds left in the game. Wasatch was able to kick a field goal to win the game. Time ran out. Bummer. It was Senior Night as well. AND, the football field is being torn down at the end of the fall sports season. For those of you that don’t know anything about Judge Memorial Catholic High School, it opened in 1921 and is steeped in tradition. The football field overlooks the Salt Lake Valley and really is "one of a kind". So many tears were shed by the big, strong boys on the football team, as well as many of the parents. Sad to the loss on Senior Night, sad to see the home season closing and sad to see the last football game played in the old stadium.
Madi and Carl returned from Vegas late Sunday evening. They Utah Sting played well and Madi pitched awesome all weekend. She was hit by a few hits that went right back to her at pitcher, and she was involved in a "hot box" where the runner lowered her helmet and rammed Madi in the stomach. Poor girl. She is a very tough cookie and rarely sheds tears. Carl said it was so sad to see her go back to the dug out trying to hold back the tears. Finally she just let them come.
The luncheon at church was a lot of fun, but I’m sure glad it is over. The setting up and cleaning up is so tiring! Ü
And so another week begins. 1 softball game, 2 soccer games and 2 football games will take us through Saturday. Fun times. Wouldn’t trade them for the world!
