The best time of the year...COLLEGE FOOTBALL!

I absolutely love college football. I love the atmosphere, the games, and the rivalries. I look forward to this the entire year...and it is finally here! The past weekend, I took the drive down to the best place on earth...College Station Texas! I love this place so much that I could spend every weekend there for the rest of my life and be happy. Kyle Field is one of a kind place. The 12th Man has no other competition anywhere else. This is by far one of the best places to be on a Saturday. I may be a little biased but who cares :) I love the town, the field and all there is to being an Aggie. We have struggled the last few years in football, but I am hoping this is our year to begin the turn around to become a top notch program.

Lea and I on or way to the game!

Saturday started off with the family leaving Waco and heading down to College Station. The crew included, me, Lea, Chris, Emma, Mom, Dad, Jason, and Rose. Rose is a dear friend of the family that we have pretty much adopted as our Aunt. She is a wonderful person, great mom, great friend and die hard Aggie. We got down there and Lea and I went to the bookstore, and walked around outside the stadium while Chris and Jason set up the ATM's outside. We got our Maroon Out shirts, and then headed to meet the rest of the crew at Wing's N More. We love this place. They have the best pickle chips (fried pickles) of any I have ever had. There wings are pretty good also! We also make it a point to eat there when we are in town. After a great lunch, we headed back to Kyle Field to cheer on the Ags to a great win over New Mexico. We had a great time. Emma loved every moment of it and she is already starting to learn about being an Aggie. She kept talking about all the Corps boys and waving at them as they walked past us. It was so cute!

I spent the rest of the weekend at my parents house helping them fix some things up. We cleared out some brush so that mom can get her flower beds going, and we also installed a flag pole so that it is ready for Sept. 11. I had so much fun driving around on the tractor! Who knew that would be so much fun. Scout could not stand the fact that I was on the tractor and he was on the ground, so once when I stopped he jumped on and rode around with me the rest of the time. It was so fun.

Matt did not go to the game with us this weekend because he spent his weekend in KS with his family hunting. He had a great time, I just hope that soon we can find a place for him to hunt around here so that he isn't always having to go back to KS. This trip he had is a yearly trip for the boys in the family so I know this will be one that he always attends, but I hope we can find some places around here for him so that he is not deprived of it like he was the last year.
