5 Minutes from the Heart: Fall

fall-heart-leafThere was no 5 Minute Friday prompt this week so I decided to create my own. Today I will be writing for just 5 minutes, straight from my heart and onto the paper, no re-writing, no editing, on the topic of Fall!

6:53 AM Go!

The weather is getting cooler, I mean it’s Texas and the high is below 100 degrees.

It must be Fall!

The bands are playing on the football fields of every high school in the area.

It must be Fall!

Students have returned to school and are anxiously awaiting their first report cards.

It must be Fall!

The stores are full of Christmas decor’

It must be Fall!

The smell of pumpkin and spice fills every coffee and pastry shop you pass.

It must be Fall!

Thankfulness is in the air.

It must be Fall.

Jeans and sweaters we can’t wear for months fill the stores.

It must be Fall.

My favorite time of year is here! It must be Fall.


The Heart of Fall: Football


My great-nephew and favorite football star!

The only thing better than fall football weather in Texas” Texas is the look on this guys face when he’s in his gear and ready to start the game!


My granddaughter with her Daddy and her Papa

This is Daniel’s first year to play pee wee football and we couldn’t be more proud of the progress he is making.

Of course we haven’t won every game. So, there are times when our fans are less than enthusiastic about the game. (I promise this was NOT a staged photo.) They make me smile.


Yard signs are a big thing in Texas!


Cheerleaders in their monogrammed chairs with their own yard signs to stake their claim on the sidelines.

As our sidelines are prepared each week, we can see the Charger spirit come to life!


The best banners are made with love, a needle and thread!


While Coach gets the boys warmed up for the game, he lines up their helmets as an example of how a well-practiced team will take on their opponents. No gaps in this offense!


Let’s get this thing started!

Our Saturday mornings start early, but we love every minute of it, and next year brother may join the fun as well.
