There are positives & negatives to living in a fairly small town. The negatives are that you have to drive somewhere else if you really want to shop for clothes, you can't go the grocery store without seeing MANY people you know, & everybody knows your business. The positives are it only takes a few minutes to get to work, people look out for each other (especially kids!), & we just live at a slower pace because our rush hour traffic means you might have to sit through a traffic light twice on a Friday afternoon if you end up downtown.
What is the best thing about small towns in Texas? FRIDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL!! Everyone goes to the game....even the out of town game. Football kicked off this week. We played against our rival....the oldest rivalry in the state of Texas. The game was fun because we saw our friends: old & new. The kids played hard....we don't really worry about them. They were running around having the best time.
Chandler saw her best buddy, Keegan. They are going to different schools this year & have been missing each other. Their friendship is very cute....but it makes her Daddy a little nervous!! HAHA She likes to tell him that Keegan is her boyfriend!! Maybe Keegan will be playing one day. His Daddy is a football coach & his mommy was a basketball coach....surely he has some athletic ability!!
Cheney hung out with several of his friends. This is one of his classmates, Rene. He tells me that Rene is the best math student in his class & he is behind him only a little. I was very impressed because Cheney introduced Rene to all his family members WITHOUT ME TELLING HIM TO DO IT!! It made me get a little teary to hear my baby say "Aunt Reva, this is my best friend, Rene. Rene, this is my Aunt Reva." I was so proud of his manners!!
Oh good grief....look at these two!! What do you think? Should we be worried?
Sadly, the Matadors lost....it wasn't pretty so we won't go there. But that is ok. We will be back next week to cheer them on again because WE LOVE THE MATADORS!! Cheney already has plans for when he wears the gold & black uniform. Chandler already has stars in her eyes when she sees the cheerleaders!!
