Four Plus Years Later....

This past weekend I flew to Los Angeles, CA to watch my godson play in his last collegiate game.  He was one of 50 of the best college players selected to play in a special NFLPA collegiate game.  The two teams were the Nationals and the Americans.  NFL scouts were there, so it was their time to shine to show what they could do.  The game was televised on ESPN2.  My godson did well.  He is a linebacker and made the first five tackles of the game.  

I figured this was a good time to reintroduce my godson, Quentin's doll alter ego.

He was dating Brandy, but his good friend Jasmine had a crush on him.  She is the one in the orange top.

I introduced you guys to the real Quentin in June 2011, when I attended his high school graduation.

Here we are Friday, Jan 22, 2016.   What a difference four years makes.  Physically he has changed, but he is still the sweetest, most caring guy I know.

Left to right:  Quenin, his older brother, his first cousin, Andre Reed (former Buffalo Bills player), Quentin's uncle, and his cousin.

Here we are at the game.  Ten of his family members and friends were able to attend.

    1. jewel snake - We are all very proud of him. Not just about the football, but he's graduating with a 3.3 GPA in communications, and he is one of the kindest people I know.

    1. Georgia Girl - Thanks for the compliment! I feel great. My godson asked me via text. I immediately went on line and bought my ticket. I responded less than 10 mins later, telling him I had my ticket and that I was coming. He couldn't believe it. It sent me about 30 emoji happy faces. I love him sooo much. I've been blessed to have him as my godson.

  10. Congratulations to your godson. I hope this leads to something for him if that is what he wants to do. You do look great (and really healthy) and happy (and your godson still looks cute). Hope the break did you good and your computer troubles are over.

    1. Carrickters - Thanks! I was really happy to be able to be part of his special moment. I've missed so much over the past four years. I had to do all I cuold to make it. As long as he stays healthy I'm pretty sure he will go that direction.
