Captain Joel

This past week, Joel had the honor of being an "Honorary Captain" for the football team at the high school where he works. The team voted him as the teacher they wanted. It was the first game of the playoffs and he was very excited to fulfill his duties. He was able to go into the locker room with the team prior to the game and then he walked out on the field with the captains (four of the five he knew & had as students) and was there for the coin flip. He was even on the local news' "Prep Rally"!

Anders & I hung out with Grandma J--well, mostly Anders--he had fun walking around with her. It was very cold & rainy/snowy, but we had fun. Sadly, we couldn't stay too long as Joel had a prior commitment, but it was fun nonetheless.
