First Day of Football and Cheer

Panthers football season started today and Nate had football practice
and Maddie had her cheer/pom practice, as she's cheering for Nate's
team. Practice is five days a week for the next month, 5:30 to 7:30.

All of Nate's conditioning paid off this year. You could see it during the warm-ups and conditioning as a lot of the kids couldn't do fifteen solid push-ups in a row. Nate was one of the faster kids and you could see the difference in his confidence, form and understanding of what was going on.

I remember last year how nervous Nate was going into the season. This year he was excited and had the playbook memorized going into the first practice.
