promised Rugby pictures

These are from Jason's first game (3 weeks ago) I lost the camera, and its now been found so here are the pictures I said I had.

Welding and Piano?

Jason does have other interests outside of Rugby (although that seems to have taken up our lives right now) Jason is taking Welding in school and LOVES it. He has entered competitions through a program called Skilled USA. The students can win scholarship money. Jasons first competition was to build a stool (team of 3) His team didnt win, but he learned alot, and they didnt come in last place :) I think they did awesome. He is also teaching himself to play piano... His dad and step mom acquired a baby grand and Jason spends time playing and watching youtube to learn to play. His dad sent me this picture of Jason playing one night.

new Driver

I'm a little slow on getting this in... BUT I have a new driver, and it seems that we don't seem to spend much time at home anymore. we're out driving.

I'm a Rugby Mom

so when my 17 year old told me he was going to play Rugby I gave a little giggle. He looked at me with his big blue eyes and said "I'm serious mom". and the scene from Friends, where Ross plays Rugby with Emily's friends from England went through my head

He promised to be careful, and even tried to explain the sport to me. many many many youtube videos later, I was clueless but more scared then before. My kid could get really hurt out there. YIKES so last weekend they had a Jamboree with 4 schools. I invited Grandpa and Grandma Williams to come watch, and invited Jason's Girlfriend to come watch with me too. we FROZE, it was so cold. The game started, and well it looked like monkey ball, and we had no clue what we were watching. It was just me and Janae for the second game, so we went and stood over by the team and the coaches. I picked up a few phrases and learned a bit listening to the coaches yell to the field. I watched Jason get pulled to the ground, and tossed into the air. lots of time reminding myself to breathe while trying to snap pictures and still watch. (as soon as I find the camera, I'll put pictures here)
