Last week was Homecoming week at Waller High School. So, instead of just football pictures, I have included photos from the week's activities.
Thursday night was JV Maroon football at the field of the Spring Woods Tigers. My camera was acting up a bit, so I didn't have a lot of pictures that turned out.

He ate nearly all of my popcorn and ran off with my Diet Coke!

The Bulldogs pulled off another victory 30-10 against the Tigers. Woo Hoo!
Friday morning, I got up early to snap a few pictures before he left for school. Will had a date for the Homecoming dance! Now, I know that I have a very handsome son, so the date was not a surprise. It was that he (unlike his older brother) let his sisters make a Homecoming mum for his date. The girls were over the moon excited to get to make another mum.
When they were in high school they would not trust a boy to provide their Homecoming mums. No, sir! The Goode Girls mums had to be top of the line!!! They worked for weeks to get it just right. This one did not take weeks...but it sure turned out cute!

Look how long that thing is!
I didn't get to see Will again until Friday night at the Varsity game. Not only does he play Junior Varsity, but he is also a Maroon Man. The Maroon Men are there to help the cheerleaders and to involve the crowd in the game. Among other things they:
...they also help the cheerleaders with stunts, but I noticed that mostly (since the majority of them are also football players) they stand around and talk about the game.
The hometown really showed up in all their maroon and white glory to cheer the Bulldogs on to a 42-7 victory over the Spring Woods Tigers!
I even sported the colors...even though maroon makes me break out in miniature hives sometimes! (Especially this week as the Arkansas Razorbacks prepare to take on the Texas A&M Aggies!)
As long as there is a Bulldog on it someplace, I think I can bear it though! (Josh snapped this picture just as I stuck out my tongue at him.)
Saturday was another full day for Will. Saturday morning was the Waller County Fair Parade that he had to march in with the other Maroon Men. After two late nights of football, I didn't get up and go. Who has a parade at 9 AM on a Saturday?
Saturday night was the dance and he wouldn't let me get a picture of him all dressed up in his jeans and boots. This is the one thing I don't like about being the mother of the boy...you don't get pictures! After the dance they headed to the Waller County Fair with friends to watch Jack Ingram perform. All in all, I think he had a good weekend...but boy, was he wiped out on Sunday!
