The Boys of Fall

I love this time of year.  School is back in session and the kids are excited looking forward to a new school year.  Well, perhaps there are those few who are dreading it.  Doesn’t summer vacation always seem so short!  But, I’m sure that they are looking forward to the upcoming fall sports activities.  I know it’s not “officially” the fall season, but it has always been my mindset that when school starts, it is.  And all across the country, the fall season is synonymous with F-O-O-T-B-A-L-L.

Most high schools have already had their first few football games of the season. We’re definitely looking forward to this coming Friday’s game!  Sometimes, I think it is the parents who look forward to those Friday night high school football games.  It reminds us of simpler days when we were younger. We were looking forward to Fridays when we could hang out with our friends and go to the varsity football game.  These days, we look forward to it because we’re proud of our kids.  If you have a son who plays football, I am sure you are very proud of him.  If you have a daughter or son who is a cheerleader, I am sure you are cheering along with them.  We are their biggest fans!  We see the team practice out on the field at least four days a week.  We can hear the coaches pump up our boys.  We see the cheerleaders perfecting their pyramid and the “fliers” fly higher to show off their skills.  (Competitive cheerleading is a big sport in the cities where I have lived).  The kids love their sports.  They want to make us proud.  They want to make their hometown proud.  We get the team pumped up when we fill their high school football stadium and cheer them on.

I sometimes watch football practices and cheerleading practices.  I enjoy hearing the sounds around me — the school band, the kids, and the nature.  I bring my bottled water, a snack, and my Chaheati™ chair.  It’s a perfect item to have especially for this time of year.  The Chaheati™ is a cordless, lightweight, collapsible, heated chair you can take anywhere.  Its rechargeable heating system has four settings and provides up to six hours of heat.  It is also water resistant.  It’s great!  Don’t have one yet… Don’t let me stop you grab one www.Chaheati.com/store

I love fall.  It is beautiful for all it has to offer — the weather gets cooler, the leaves start changing its colors (depending in which part of the country you live), the early sunset, a new school year, fall sports, and the upcoming holidays.

I am looking forward to our own hometown Friday Night Lights, cheering on our Boys of Fall and keeping warm in my Chaheati™ chair.
