Since I was gone all summer and missed birthdays and family reunions, it had been awhile since I had seen my grandparents. Things have been really crazy with school and whatnot, especially with Thanksgiving break in the very near future. With an extremely crazy week behind me I decided a trip to my grandparents would be a relaxing weekend. My cousins were also playing in the sub-state football game, so it was nice to finally go to one of their games. Smith Center beat Oakley 33-20 in a well played game by both teams, extending Smith Center’s winning streak to 79. My uncle told me out of those 79, that was the hardest win. Guess I picked a good game to go to! I spent the rest of the weekend hanging out with my grandparents while relaxing and doing absolutely nothing. It was exactly what I needed.
These boys have the coolest entrance I’ve ever seen at a high school game. The atmosphere was amazing as well. Smith Center definitely loves their football team! #29 is one of my cousins.
If you want a great book to read and want to learn more about the story of Coach Barta and the football tradition of Smith Center, check out the book Our Boys.
What a great weekend and opportunity to continue with my list. I’m so thankful I could spend the weekend with my amazing grandparents!
