MARSH MUSINGS

Sandra and I were in Lawrence for the state championship of the 5th grade football league this past week-end. The Hoisington team represented themselves and our community very well. I got some really good photographs. It is a special time for these budding athletes who still appreciate a mom's hug and their family support. The coaches donate a huge amount of time and effort for these kids. It is an expensive endeavor to travel as much as is required, and I give a "shout up" to those families that haul, feed and sleep these guys.
