I Love Fridays
I love Fridays, I look forward to it all week long and not for the reason you might first suspect. Sure, I love the fact that it is the end of the week and I have a weekend to get stuff done for myself but mostly it is because Sarah has her meets and Alex has his game. It is especially exciting because Westview's Football team is having their best season yet. They are still undefeated but my word did they give me a heart attack today. I guess I should go in chronological order. Sarah ran a great race today. She came in fourth place. Her time wasn't her best and the competition wasn't all that tough but she has been so sick for so long that we are all thrilled. Especially her. I think she may actually be beating this thing. She still gets stomach aches but they seem less severe and her bad attacks seem less frequent. Westview competed against San Marcos today and they swept all events. The Football Team played Rancho Bernardo today. In the history of Westview (which is only four years) we have never beat Rancho Bernardo nor have we ever had a season with this many wins. We've only lost to Oceanside and I think I mentioned that they are #1 in the county, #11 on the west coast and #50 in the nation. We don't need to be ashamed of losing to them. Today's game was scary though. We played very sluggishly and we're lucky we won. We really didn't deserve to except that RB played even worse than us. We took the lead in the beginning with an early field goal but with 37 seconds left in the game RB made a touch down and led us by four points. I knew we had lost but that is when Westview decided to play. We returned the kick to mid field and luckily we still had four time outs. We made a series of short passes until we made a touch down with two seconds left in the game. It's good that we don't have any more boys to play football because my poor heart couldn't take another season of this.
