Hey!

And now that my song is through (if you missed it, it’s to the tune of “Jingle Bells”) I thought I’d share just a few pictures from this morning’s annual Turkey Bowl.

It was a balmy 20 degrees, that felt like 7.

And while the football was pretty fun to watch,

And our friend Hank didn’t seem to mind,

As an innocent bystander of the morning, I have to say it was FREEZING out.

Most of the players on the field didn’t seem to mind it, which was pretty amazing.

But if you looked closely, you could see evidence of how very chilly 7 degrees can feel.

I was pretty proud of all of the people who came out to play.

To me, even flag football can be a little intimidating.

But seeing people like Jade stand fearless in the face of Wyatt running full speed at her?  It was quite an admirable way to start off the day, in my opinion.

At the end of the morning, we took a moment to thank Jesus for the fun games of football and for everyone remaining injury free.

Despite the cold, I was so thankful to be surrounded by so many amazing people.  It was the best way to kick off our day.

These were the brave souls who celebrated our annual Turkey Bowl this morning.

Not pictured were a few dedicated parents and the awesome group of girls who watched the games like reasonable people on our warm bus while listening to Christmas music and drinking hot chocolate.

And that sums up Turkey Bowl 2018.  Hope everyone is enjoying a safe and warm day and here’s wishing a huge Happy Thanksgiving to all!
