We went to the Medford football game on Friday night to check it out. The kids had a great time. However, I spent the entire time with Chloe out of the stands. She didn't like it very much. Next time, we get a sitter for her.
We picked this game to go to because we figured, it's August, it won't be to cold. We were wrong. It was freezing. We left after halftime.
Although Chloe hated the game, she LOVED the band. She went right up to the track and stared. The Raiderettes were right in front of us and they kept laughing at her during their routines. I think she was a distraction.
Then, to Chloe's amazement, they threw their little, round things full of streamers on the ground right in front of her and ran away. It's hard to see in this picture, but Chloe spent the rest of the time trying to get her hand through the fence to steal it. And she kept getting the streamers through, but the actual round things wouldn't come through. I would try to push it back, and she would do it again because I couldn't really get it to throw it far enough back. She actaully laid on the ground, on her belly, to try and squeeze her hand under the fence. I nthe meantime, everyone else is singing the Alma Mater. And the raiderettes were still watching her and trying not to laugh at her. And then the band marched off the field towards her - right up to the fence. She ran the other way. I think the drums in her face were a little too much to handle.
