It was an absolutely beautiful day. I don't know what the temperature was, but the sun was shining. And it felt fabulous to take a walk and breathe deep and drink it all in. And I think all my neighbors decided to take advantage of the day too. I don't know when I've seen so many people outside in January.
I watched football. And I watched my nervous husband make (with dry mouth) funny comments early on in the game about what was going/not going to happen. And I watched my two bigger boys get nervous just like their dad. And I watched the little boy dress up in his football pads and hand-me-down Colts jersy and run 42 times across the family room to the couch making touchdown after touchdown. And then I watched the Colts beat the Jets. And I watched my boys relax!
I watched Jack grab the newspaper from the mailbox before breakfast so he could see who the Colts will be playing in the Super Bowl. And I noticed how many members of the family thought it important to don some article of Colts clothing this morning. And I smiled when I saw this clever headline in the Indy Star. And I'm happy that my boys are happy!
