Friday night with the boys...

This past Friday DH and I joined our oldest son's family to watch the first high school football game of the season. Unfortunately our team didn't win, but it was fun non-the-less. With one grandson (16) in the marching band, one grandson (if he will allow us to call him that - 17) on the football team, and one grandson (8) in the stands with us, it can be quite exciting no matter what the score!

However, this post is written upon the request of my 8 year old grandson. We (for whatever reason) got to talking about all kinds of things during the game... one of which was "blogs". Apparently he had seen my blogs and had some comments on their contents. And he wasn't kidding about seeing them as he actually recited the titles to 3 of them. I was impressed. I don't imagine I have many followers, but it always amazes me when someone notices (even an 8 year old).

One of his main concerns was that although I have some pictures of him scattered about... along with his other cousins, I hadn't written much about him. I explained this was because although the blog is personal, I try not to put too much "personal" information into it. Mind you, I do put my own personal thoughts out there for all to see, but don't go much into commentaries about friends and family. He caught me in this saying that I had written some about his youngest cousin, my youngest grand daughter who is 2. Ah yes, I explained, I have done that, but beings she's too young to care that I've written something about her... makes it safe, whereas I may write something about one of you older ones and it may make you mad at me. Thus, I don't say too much. But I do post your adorable pics!

Well, he promised me that he wouldn't get mad if I wrote about him. So, this is me writing about my youngest grandson (without divulging too much personal info). He's 8 years old, smart, extremely handsome, and has a very inquisitive mind. He has always taken a strong interest in numbers and computers and immensely enjoys watching soccer games! Although he may enjoy other foods, I know his favorites to be hot dogs, hamburgers, and pizza - not necessarily in that order.

Here's one of my favorite pics!

And another!

And a more recent one taken this summer with his brother!

Handsome devils, aren't they?


  1. You have a nice family, beautiful grandchildren.

  2. This made me smile. Of course you have to be wary what you put out there, pics and details, though I'm not sure your grandson agrees or understands. But he's growing up in this age of social media where nothing is private, so his perspective is and will be different.

    When he's old enough, he can start his own blog, or FB page. Heck, maybe he'll start the new social media craze of his generation! LOL.

    1. Kim, I think he would like to have his own blog now. And I agree, by the time he's grown, who knows whether blogs will still be popular. As fast as technology is growing, in 10 years, life could be very different.

  3. Tell him please he has good taste in selecting a biographer.

    1. Thanks, Joanne. I do try to choose my words carefully... but let's face it... grandkids are pretty great!

    1. I think so... but again, I could be a bit biased.

  5. Oh, don't you just love them, I have a nine year old grandson and he is a character.
    Yes they are 'handsome devils' indeed.
    Have a great day,


  6. how cool he is reading your blog, handsome indeed.

  7. Very handsome boys. I have an 8 year old grandson too, with very similar interests except chicken fingers replace hamburgers.


Thanks for reading and commenting! It makes my day...
