Bama Homecoming was so much fun. The girls went to their first game this weekend and had a ball. They could not get over everything going on. We walked around, showed them the sorority houses with the lawn decorations. They got to see where I lived while there as well as Aunt Beth's house. We saw the team buses pull up so we ran over and got to see the players walk in. That was fun getting to see that and the look on their faces when they saw Saban and Trent Richardson. I think Sara Brooke thought he was much taller than he really is. We walked the Quad and ran into some cheerleaders who were nice enough to take a picture with the girls (on Aunt Beth's camera and will post later). We just happened upon Preston Dial with his HUGE Championship Ring and they heard Denny Chimes play. We made it back over to the Walk of Champions and you could almost feel a greatness. They loved the statue of The Bear, had no clue who Gene Stallings was but ran right over to the statue of Uncle Nick. We found our seats and the girls were amazed at the size and what all was going on. The players were on the field warming up and they loved it. Mary Reese had fun cheering and doing the wave. Sara Brooke was too busy wanting to see Richardson and Maze. The whole way back to Aunt Beth and Uncle Spencer's house they said Thank You and that this was the best weekend ever! You know it's nice to hear that, but when you know that they really mean it, it's even better. I think they are ready to go back, they are definetly champs at cheering ROLL TIDE! Best memories, ever!

The saying that "Time flies when you are having fun" is right. The last ten years have flown by, I just hope at some point soon it slows down. I have loved the last ten, I know that the next ten will be just as wonderful. Happy Birthday Sara Brooke!

Mary Reese got to wear a cap and gown, walk across the stage and sing a farewell song. She received an Accelerated Reading award and the Citizenship Award for her class.
Sara Brooke wants to be a professional photographer when she grows up. In the picture, she is wearing a "photographers hat", her camera bag and dressed like she would on a photo shoot. She had to get up in front of the entire 4th grade class, and guests and say something about being a photographer.
The last day of school was bitter sweet, Mary Reese was sad she was leaving Kindergarten and the best teacher ever and Sara Brooke racked up on Awards Day. She got a Citizenship Award, All A Award and Little Feet Award for running 200 laps that equals 50 miles. It's hard to believe that I have a 1st grader and a 5th grader, but they are smart girls and will love the next year of school. Mary Reese is reading up a storm and Sara Brooke is having a good time so far this summer. She just got back from Camp Dixie and will be heading to Zoo Camp in a few weeks. Fun, fun, fun!
Until next time, lots of love and sun!
