A went to a football game. J went backpack camping with the Boy Scouts. B played his last baseball game of the season. It was a good Friday night.

B is in third grade this year, so he got to go on the State Fair field trip and I got to chaperone. It wasn't as good as the other two times. The people at the fair were not as organized as previous times. There was a lot of walking to a place, figuring out where we were suppose to go and then waiting for something to start. I had B and two other boys to watch. One of them kept disappearing. I had to go to the teacher multiple times and tell her I couldn't find him. At least she knows the kid and knew it wasn't do to lack of attention on my part. B was sad because he wanted to go ride the rides and eat a corny dog. Maybe next year!

In order to go to the Aggie game at SMU, we bought SMU season tickets. Since we had tickets, DH & B joined S#2 & her family for the TCU v SMU game on Saturday. The rest of us had other plans. J went camping with Boy Scouts. A & I had some mother/daughter bonding over toe shoes & pedicures.
I cleaned my fridge. It was such an accomplishment, it needed a blog post. I don't want think about how long it had been since it had been completely cleaned. Earlier this summer, the boys tried making orange juice popsicles in the freezer. Somehow it spilled and it was disgustingly sticky everywhere. The fridge wasn't much better. It took several hours but it was well worth the effort. It feels so refreshing to open the refrigerator door and see clean.

Last weekend the whole family headed out to another football game. This time we didn't have to travel far since A&M was playing at SMU. It is a fun school for tailgating and we saw lots of Aggie friends. I think B was indoctrinated to the whole Aggie thing. He might want to be a Yell Leader some day. He loved it all. The game itself was a blowout and kind of boring. We were some of the few who stayed for the whole game. A was glad she brought her book with her.

DH & I went to South Bend for the Michigan game with S#2 & family, S#5 & a cousin or two. We hadn't been back since S#5's senior year/22nd birthday celebration. It was a great weekend to go. DH ran into Dick Vitale in the new bookstore. We tailgated with BIL#2's roommates and enjoyed jello shots from a neighboring tailgate. The weather was perfect for a football game. Our seats were on the very top row of the stadium, but they were still good seats. We had a terrific view of the field and the campus. Best of all, ND won. Big!
Bonus for the weekend, we were able to stop for a quick visit with a high school friend & her family on our way out of town. Next time, we need to plan for a longer visit!
