My Family is Awesome

Just in case you didn't know, I must say, my family is pretty awesome. Especially my cousin, Nathan.

Nate has won the National PP&K competition for his age group. In case you are like me, and don't know much about football, this is kind of a big deal. He beat thousands of contestants and was interviewed during the NFL game this weekend!

We've always known Nate is awesome, but it's great that it's being broadcasted for those who might not have already known.

Last night, my husband and I rushed to the airport to be there for when he arrived back from Denver. There was a hero's welcome for him at the airport, followed by a firetruck escort (which I got to ride in with my sister) and another hero's welcome at the high school.
