We are very blessed to live in an area that has a large and very involved Christian homeschool community. Last night, our homeschool athletic program was celebrating the homecoming football game. The program is called W.I.N.G.S. (Winning in God's Service) and focuses on making disciples through athletics. We decided to attend the game as a family and see what it was all about. The program falls under T.C.A.L. (Texas Christian Athletic League) which allows the team to play other homeschool athletic programs, as well as, private schools from around the state.

Having a great time with all of their spirit gear!

This was our first experience with Six Man Tackle Football - it is really exciting and action packed!
Cheering and checking on the rules with Daddy
It just goes to show (once again) that the world of homeschooling offers so many opportunities. Tonight, is the homecoming dance for the older students. Which I must add, the parents have really gone the extra mile to teach them the proper etiquette for a dance. For example, rules such as: 1. Ask as many people as you can to dance. Everyone came to dance - help to make sure they have fun. 2. You may not decline an offer to dance with one person and then proceed to dance with someone else during that song (this is in response to how much courage it takes a young man to ask a young lady to dance). These rules are so precious and necessary, yet rarely taught these days! I love that little details like this are the expectations and the norm for these young adults.
We are #1! :)

Again, I am so thankful we live in this homeschooling community and my kids will have the same opportunities in a few years. God truly blessed our family when he placed us in homeschooling.
