Signs of Fall

This afternoon I had to run out of town to pick up some football equipment for my son and on my way back I couldn't resist stopping and snapping a few photos of this colorful sight! It's almost like I could feel the cool crisp air that will be on it's way soon. Don't get me wrong, I really don't like cold weather but after a hot Oklahoma summer...I will definitely welcome Fall.

Happy Thursday everyone!

Football and more football!

Tyler has had one scrimmage and his first game of the season will be next Thursday. Playing football at the high school level has been so much more intense. I am proud of him, I think he's doing a great job! Go #50!!!During this scrimmage, it was so stinking hot! I felt for the boys, it was one of those days that you could cut the humidity. I am definitely ready for football but the cool fall weather that also goes with it.
Here are some photos of the OU game last Saturday. We have season tickets and were so excited for the opening game. OU won but not before the rain came pouring down and delayed the game an hour or so. I know Tyler thinks at 15 years old he should not have to pose for pics anymore but sorry...I am the mom and I will always need MORE photos...*smiles*
This is a view from our endzone seats, I love them! Allows me to get a view of Bob (the coach) every so often...*wink*
Shelly wanted all of us to take this little quiz for fun! I just did and here are my results. Go check yours out! I like to think of myself as a refined "Okie" when it comes to my accent...*smiles*

What American accent do you have?
Your Result: The West

Your accent is the lowest common denominator of American speech. Unless you're a SoCal surfer, no one thinks you have an accent. And really, you may not even be from the West at all, you could easily be from Florida or one of those big Southern cities like Dallas or Atlanta.

Another Wednesday already?!

Where does the time go? School is already flying by so quickly! But I know we all feel that way. School is really busy right now, screening preschoolers, setting up schedules, parent meetings, plus my son's new high school schedule...dropping him off at a new school, picking him up from football practice. He's adjusting pretty well to being a freshman this year, he's had a few difficulties but I've very proud of him. Playing football at the high school level has been pretty stressful, the coaches expect the kids to step it up a level quickly so's going okay.

Shelly tagged me last week and I am just now getting to it, sorry Shelly! So here goes, better late than never.
