Yesterday was an incredible day for our daughter. Pro Football Day finally arrived; she had been counting down the days all week and was beyond excited to get out and push herself in the quarterback challenge, to run and compete in professional drills, and to PLAY FOOTBALL all day. I dropped her off at the field and had no doubt that she would have a great day.
When I arrived at pick-up, it was evident that she played hard.
Elated, she walked toward me and wasted no time in showing me all of her times on her player profile card. Her confidence was overflowing; she was energized and proud of herself and her accomplishments; she seemed changed by her positive experiences from the day.
I asked her if Coach gave her the football that she was carrying. A broad smile crossed her face as she let me know that she–and a friend from school (Congratulations, Michael!)–were both awarded the MVP award for the day because of a combination of their positive attitudes and scores from the day.
Once home, after a moment or two of rest and a snack, she and I headed to the backyard to play catch with her MVP award.
Watching our daughter work hard and find both success and joy in something she is passionate about is such a gift!
At the end of the day, our daughter summed up the whole day nicely when she announced, “Today was the best day ever!”

Thank you, very much!
Yay Pascale, we are proud of you!!!
Beautiful photos, I especially love the first one it really captures the rush she is on and the effect it took to achieve her goal.
Thank you. She had such an incredible day of playing football and the expression on her face when I picked her up spoke volumes.
Wow! How exciting for her! LOVE the photos as they depict not only her happiness but how hard she played. What great memories to keep and what a wonderful young woman she is becoming 🙂
Thank you, April. I am so happy for her! And, I am thankful that I captured some images from the day, which will soon be printed and placed in our home.
I’m in awe. Great post.
