While the drive is a long one,
This is always a welcome sight because it means we are halfway there...
Of course, no trip is without potty breaks (however, you had best REALLY have to go or baby girl and I are NOT stopping).
Sorry for the poor quality photo...this was taken from a moving car with my phone. We have been trying to get a picture of this for the past couple years. These sit outside the entrance to a ranch just outside of Waco. The last time we tried to get pictures, we had slowed down and were just about to pull over when baby girl noticed the owners pulling in behind her. LOL Oops.
And Ron...I will be sure to bring one with when we come to LA next month!!! Amanda said it best, "they will look tres chic in your courtyard."
Baby Girl and I had fun with our phone emojis with this one!! I will let y'all piece those together.
Baylor always does it up big for the start of the new year...
not a billboard in a 20 mile radius was missed!! Sic 'em Bears!! (of course, I had to laugh that underneath it says wrong way!)
I got baby girl all settled...groceries, clean room, books (in that order...a girl has to eat, the clean room is for mom's peace of mind, and books, well-dad would like to think that tuition $$$ is going toward something).
All joking aside, we could not be more proud of her. She will finish her undergraduate degree in 3 years!!! And, grad school applications are just around the corner.
I flew home Saturday, and arrived home to these...
a beautiful bouquet of flowers, my favorite dish (chicken divan) oven ready, and a CLEAN HOUSE! Sorry ladies, don't hate me. Yes, he is a keeper.
This week will be spent adjusting to the quiet again, and keeping our sweet Cairn entertained (she is missing her Auntie Katie, as we call her, something awful).
Next week I will start my weekly Bible Study class, and teach my new group of littles for the first time. Always love getting back to those sweet little ones who are so eager to learn!
Hope everyone has a fantastic week!!
