Sic 'Em Bears!!!

First, a disclaimer...I am a very, very bad mommy and didn't manage to get a pic of Tay after the first day of school before she'd changed into her 'comfy clothes.' That being said, I do plan to recreate the moment this weekend. A bit of a stretch but there are scrapbooking ramifications that must be taken into account.


On to the new news...last night was Baylor's first football game of the season. It was on Thursday because it was nationally televised on FSN. Now I'm not sure who is responsible for setting the schedules but, in my opinion, a rebuilding team shouldn't have 3 of its first 4 games (and only non-conference competitions) with opponents ranking in the Top 25. Then again, that's just my opinion...

Needless to say, Baylor came out on the losing end; however, our freshman quarterback from Copperas Cove definitely showed some scrappiness and speed (he just missed competing in the Olympics this year) that's sure to be beneficial in the future. By future, I mean when we get an offensive line that can protect him. Poor guy--I'm not sure he knew which end was up by the third quarter...and he didn't begin playing until the beginning of the second.

It was also really neat watching the never-ending Baylor Line come out of the tunnel. This is our second largest class ever and it definitely showed when the line seemed never-ending as they filtered around the field. It was an awesome sight!

The band did a great Olympic show; however, I am also of the opinion that you must wear your uniforms when on national TV (particularly when that's not an every day occurrence for us)...regardless of how hot it is. The t-shirts and khaki shorts weren't very impressive. Neither was the guard, for that matter...timing and positioning was off from the start, dance moves not polished, etc...

It sounds like I'm just complaining but that's really not how I feel...we actually had a great time at the game. The festive atmosphere, nachos, sunflower seeds, Dr. Pepper and Chick-fil-A (Tay's choice) were a fun way to spend the evening. Can't say I'm not looking to forward to some games when it might be a little cooler but, all in all, it was a great time had by all.

Dave's working all weekend so we're planning to spend a quiet holiday weekend at home...errands on Saturday, church on Sunday and then heading to Temple on Monday to see Nana and Boppy and buy new dance shoes. It is really necessary for all three pair to become too small all at once? lol...

By the way, I did take pictures last night but they won't deliver for some reason. Still working out the kinks...

P.S. I almost forgot to mention that we were sad last night when our friend, Ryan, wasn't even suited up for the game...he did do a great job of motivating the team, though, and was even doing a bit of coaching (that's his major....). We are hoping he'll be suited up for at least one game so we can get a picture, though...
