Garnet and Gold

On Saturday, that most wonderful of all seasons began. No, not Spring, Winter, or even Fall – College Football Season, of course! This year, I have my own little team of Seminoles! Jasper wears Gavin's #6 hand-me-down jersey while, after three seasons, Gavin finally graduated to #7.

Unfortunately, we couldn't watch FSU's opening game, but they started with a shut-out by beating University of Louisiana at Monroe 34-0. We watched a few other games, though, and Gavin kept pointing out that they were all using "a ball that looks like Jasper's." I suppose that's true, Gavin, but it's really just a normal football! Apparently, he thinks typical brown footballs are abnormal and all footballs should be garnet and gold like his! I can't say I disagree!

Gavin is really good at catching the ball now…

Jasper would be a strong running back on any team. He's fast!

I wanted an updated photo with the boys. This is the best we managed! Jasper never has any interest whatsoever in posing for a photograph and Gavin feeds off his indifference.

What you can't see in the photo below is how Jeff was leaning with his elbows in the grass and Jasper was crawling onto his back for a pony ride!
