Back in Texas

Friday night after work we loaded up the truck and hit the road for the big city of Poteau, Oklahoma to see our not so baby boy.  We knew we would be getting in late so we told Blake to feel free to go out with his friends Friday night. We didn't know he would be going out with Ms. Carl Albert.  She actually just handed off her crown to a new Ms. Carl Albert.  So of course I had to give him a hard time for going out with her.

Jackie, Blake, Michael.  This was taken after Saturdays game.

Saturday we got up and took Blake out to breakfast.  It was more brunch then anything.  After we ate Blake headed back to his dorm room to get ready for the first inner squad game of the weekend.  We went up to the school to watch the game. Oh my word the head coach had me cracking up. He had all kinds of one liners. When the game was finally over we went back to Blake's room and he got cleaned up.  We drove to Fort Smith, AR to have dinner.  We were hoping to catch a movie but, the baseball team has a mid night curfew.  After we ate we went back to our hotel room to just relax and visit and watch TV a bit. Michael took Blake back to the dorm by 11:30.

Sunday we had planned on taking Blake to breakfast again but, he told us he was going to church instead. So Blake went to church. Michael and I went to the laundry mat to do Blake's laundry so we would have something to do after we had to check out of our hotel room.  The boys had another inner squad game at 1:30.  So after the laundry was finished we ate and then head up to the field.  It was a beautiful day.  As the day went on it got more windy but not as bad as it had been on Saturday.

After the game we went back to the dorm and said goodbye to the boys.  I was tired and fell asleep almost as soon we got on the road.  I didn't wake up until we were in Texas.  This trip was to fast.  I wish we could have really gotten to visit with Blake more.  We will only get to see him briefly after games until May. This mama is very sad about that.  I guess I should be thankful that he even wants to spend time with us.

I hope you have a wonderful week.
