New Business!

I decided to start my own little business for Coaches Wives & Kids and any female that enjoys football- little league mom's are welcome to use it also.
My business is called Lady Mann's Locker Room, it features information for Wives and ways to get involved. I also have sites where you can shop and I have included fun finds- places that I have shopped for my items.

Feel free to check it out. I love feedback and would love to know of other ways to make it better and easier to navigate!

District Re-alignment!

Well, 5 days to go to see which scary district we will be placed in. Are you nervous?? I WAS, but then I talked to Josh about it last night and he is pretty confident. Not too confident, but he has faith in our team and our program and feels that although its definitely going to be tough, that we will be rising to the challenge and give it all we have regardless of who we are playing.

Football is just as much mental as it is physical, so as long as our boys stay focused in the classroom as well as in the weightroom, then we are going to be ok! Classroom is likely the most important... if you don't make your grades, well then you don't get practice or playing time. So stay on top of studying!!!!

Monday morning at 8:45, Josh will be downtown ready to start recruiting coaches for games and I will be tuning into Fox Sports Southwest,
(direct tv people- channel 676). The alignment starts at approximately 9am.
I will update my blog with all the latest information, if you are on Facebook- I will also post it on facebook and if you need me to- email me and send me your cell phone number or your email address and I will text you if I need to.

This is going to be one of the biggest days for Rouse Raider Football!!

Another Coach Engaged!

John Blanchett, boyfriend of Marlene Chavez popped the question on New Years Eve in San Fransisco, California! They were in the Chrissy Fields, over looking the Golden Gate:) (way to go John)
Obviously, she said yes. They have not set a wedding date yet, but I will let you know when they do!!!

Coach Lindsey Smith Engaged!

First year Coach Lindsey Smith will be bringing a new addition to the Raider Coaching Staff- only she is getting married- not pregnant! ha

Jona Williams and Lindsey Smith will be married May 22,2010.
Lindsey and Jona actually went to High School together (at Cedar Park HS) and they met when he was her Powder Puff Football Coach:)
They actually got engaged LAST New Year's Eve, and I am very sorry that I am just now adding their engagement to the blog.

We are very happy to have Lindsay on board and excited to add to the Raider Coaching Staff's Family (tongue twister)

Congratulations to the Bride and Groom to Be!

Another Raider Addition! 3 down, 2 more to go!!

Exactly 6 days after Reece's debut, Jacob and Lindsay Thompson gave Connor a little brother! 2 girls, 2 boys! Fun Times!!

Bennett Lucas Thompson was welcomed into the world on Monday, January 11, 2009 at 7:45 am weighing in at 8 lbs and 20.5 oz!!

I think Bennett looks like Lindsay because of the dark hair, but she said that both Connor and Bennett had dark hair at birth and then Connors turned blonde when he got a little older, so I guess we shall see!!!

We will have a lot of Birthday's to Celebrate in January!!

Judson's Birthday is Jan 3
Reece's Birthday is Jan 6
Bennett's Birthday is Jan 11

NEW Raider Additions!!!!

I feel so horrible! I got a little behind in doing some posting and I am just now today finding some time to write about the new babies that we have aquired over the last 2 weeks!!

On Januay 6, 2009, Shane and Mandy Krause gave Madelyn a baby sister. Mandy and the baby are both doing great and are happy that the new baby are here! Shane and Mandy chose to keep the name a big secret from everyone until she was born.

Well, I tried EVERYTHING in the world to get them to spill the secret, but they both held up strong and I didn't find out until the rest of the world did!

So, on January 6, 2009 at 12:39pm, weighing in at 6lbs, 5oz and 19.5 inches long-

REESE VICTORIA KRAUSE made it into the world.

She is every bit as cute as Madelyn and from what I hear, Miss Maddie and Miss Reece look very much alike. Shane and Mandy have produced some beautiful children. and
I will get to see that for myself tomorrow!
