Saturday was the last regular-season game for the Red Raiders and we were very glad it was almost 70 degrees for a great game against Sioux County rival, Dordt. I think it's fair to say we won handily, securing a 55-7 victory. This was the second game that Ryan attended from beginning-to-end and I think it would be fair to summarize his time as:
Quarter 1: Playing on the bleachers with the 2 Long-Horn Cows and 2 cars he brought. Granted, the cows were apparently playing football (lots of tackling between the "Vikings" cow and the "Blue Jays" cow), but still, not a lot of real football being watched.
Quarter 2: Adam's dad took him to go buy a treat at the concession stand and we've perfected getting a bag of Skittles to last an entire quarter (shake out 1 or 2 at a time, then he picks them out of my hand and has to eat them before he gets another one). He was SO excited to discover the purple bag of Skittles has BLUE ones in it--his new favorite.
Quarter 3: Play cows/cars with my cousin, Carter.
Quarter 4: Run around in the grassy area, tackling Grandpa and waiting for the game to be over.
Post-Game: Running onto the field to find Daddy and then NOT cooperating to take pictures.
