Friday Favorites - Family

This is a lengthy posting but how could I not share with you all the great things that have gone on this week.  I hope you enjoy some of my week-long family favorites as I join Rachel and others for Friday Favorites.

 Last week hubby joined our son and the Penn High School Kingsmen in Salt Lake City, Utah for the National Rugby Championship.
 Penn was one of eight (8) H.S. clubs from the U.S. invited to attend this prestigious event, so it was so exciting for hubby to be able to go with his boys.
Notice hubby was proud to show off his LSU gear while in this foreign land.
The Kingsmen didn't win this year, but they did come in 2nd.  So National Runners-up is a great honor and one no other Penn H.S. team has brought home before.  So way to go Penn Kingsmen and especially grandson, Jackson.  We could not be more proud!

While we're on the subject of Rugby, Daughter-in-Love made an exceptionally nice treat for these big guys.  She baked over 32 dozen brownies and delivered them to the team this afternoon after practice.  Is there any wonder they love to come to the Day house?

We fixed Po-Boys for a few hungry boys the other night with brownies for desert.  Do you see happy faces there anywhere?

 If you have been reading my blogs at all, you know this part of the Day family is extremely involved in athletics.  So, while the guys played Rugby, the girls made a 4 hour trip south for the weekend for the President's Soccer Championship.  I have no idea which President or of what, and neither did anyone else it seemed.

Regardless, we spent Saturday and Sunday morning honoring someone of whom we have no clue, on the soccer field with a lot of other parents and grandparents.

Our girls won all but the last one and evidently the President wasn't satisfied with just one weekend tournament, it is to be continued later in June.  Go figure!

 This beautiful, feminine, perfect little lady off the field, is one of the most aggressive and fearless players on the field.  She is a total contradiction!  She is so much fun to watch and is a strong defensive presence.
Now, another side of this granddaughter #4 is she is a musician.

 Tonight, we attended her Middle School Orchestra Concert.  They really did a nice concert and have a great sound.  Now try to picture this fierce soccer player making beautiful music on the cello.
Proud Mom & Dad
 Proud Bibby & Da
Granddaughter #1, Chandler made a 4.0 in her second semester of college.  We are so proud of her and for this accomplishment.  WAY TO GO!
  Our Granddaughter #2 celebrated her Sweet Sixteenth birthday this week.
On her birthday, she not only got her driver's license but got to drive her very own vehicle to school for the first time.  Congratulations SWEET Cassidy.  
Now, for the littlest grand.  Granddaughter #6 graduated from Pre-K this week.  Wow, my babies are all growing up.
And these are the parents of these three achieving, beautiful girls.
We will be having an opportunity to worship together this weekend plus playing some more Soccer and Rugby on Saturday and on Memorial Day.  I hope your weekend is an enjoyable one for you for your family.

 "Praise God from Whom all blessings flow,
Praise Him all creature here below.
Praise Him above ye heavenly hosts,
Praise Father, Son, and Holy Ghost.
