New Orleans! My shocked kids!

Yes YOU! You did it Jake! You were an awesome player in high school, even while struggling with a diabetes diagnosis. 

You were a fantastic Badger!

So proud of you!!

And a good brother to sister Betsy and to brother Nick!

And Courtney likes you, too! 

Congratulations Jake!!!! Whew! Glad the A to Z challenge is over and Jake got on an NFL Team. Go Saints! I also got an agent for my novel and hope to be the next one in the family to get a big contract! All glory to God!
