Keigan finally met JAKE WORTHINGTON

It is no secret that Jake Worthington (from Team Blake, on The Voice) is from right here in La Porte where we happen to live and where my kids happen to go to school. While Jake graduated this part year, he has a younger brother that is a freshman along with Dawson. They play football together. 
We have seen Jake many times picking up Reid from football, and Keigan always gets super excited when she sees him, but she is scared to death to try to speak to him. It's so funny to see her get so excited. 
Anyway, this last Thursday was the first game of the season, and Dawson needed me to bring a shirt to him so Keigan and I went early and watched the B team play before the A team. I sent Dawson a text when we got there and made him come down to the gate to get his shirt, and she told Keigan he was sitting with Jake. The look on her face was priceless, and I wish I would have taken a picture, but I didn't. We followed Dawson but we didn't go sit where he was sitting, but close enough that Keigan could keep a close eye on Jake. Lol. 
I sent Dawson a text and told him his sister was freaking out and Dawson kept trying to get her to come up there, but she would not go alone. After about 5 minutes, I finally moved up there where Dawson was, but she was STILL NOT going to speak to Jake. It was probably a good hour later, and only after we were talking to Jake's mom, just as Jake was leaving, he came over to Keigan and sat behind her and asked if she wanted her picture taken with him. She was beyond excited, and scared to death. So, I am sure Jake nor his mom, will EVER see this blog post, but, Thank YOU Wendy Worthington, and Thank YOU Jake for making my daughter so excited!!! She will forever be a huge fan of yours!  


These 2 will NEVER understand what they mean to me until they have babies of their own.


Ok, I posted this as a draft when it first happened, and now here I am like 3 weeks later, finally going to finish this post. Dawson broke his hand on the last day of the first week of football practice. First day in full pads. First year of high school football....Yeah, he was really thrilled. NOT. 

He had to have surgery to have pins put in on August 22...the same day as their scrimmage game. Another disappointment...
He was however given a full release, and was able to play in the first game of the actual season. Needless to say, he was very excited about that. So far he has had no problems at all, and has had no pain. We go back to the doctor this week so they can look at it, and change the dressing, and maybe we will get to see the pins :-)  as we have not seen anything because we were given orders DO NOT TAKE THE DRESSING OFF!
