We just finished up a great weekend and are heading into a very big week.
Saturday, the basketball team had another scrimmage. As I was about to get out of the car and walk Brianna in, her friends Tara and Hailey pulled up. So she asked if I would stay in the car and let her walk in with her friends. It seems like such a small thing, but there was a lump in my throat as I watched her walk away from my car and into the gym with her friends. And since it was an away game, she rode the bus with the team for the first time. Another big moment.
On a side note, last weekend, Brianna put her small mum on ShyAnn’s memorial (Rykker and Rylee made her a small one for her “able”). I was sure with all the wind we had last week that it would be gone by now, but we were both so excited to see that it was still there when we drove by this Saturday.
Brian, Bri and I went to the TCU game on Saturday. It was Bri’s first since the accident. This girl grew up going to TCU games. In fact, if I’m not mistaken, she spent her first Halloween at a TCU game. She grew up wearing a little TCU cheerleading uniform; she’s had her face painted purple and silver in Frog Alley; she learned dance moves from the TCU showgirls; she ran onto the football field before games with hundreds of other kids. TCU football has just been something she’s done her whole life. And the first game back was awesome – beautiful weather, great friends, a rowdy crowd, and an excellent win — GO FROGS!
After church Sunday morning, we spent the afternoon getting ready for a big week ahead. We made some spaghetti, a pot of soup for our neighbors, a big pot of chili for our busy week and did our nails with Jamberry wraps. And then Bri went to Fireworks, our church’s youth group. I have already decided that next Sunday WILL be a day of rest for us. Yeesh, I was exhausted. And I didn’t even bake anything pumpkin!
This week is going to be extra special for us. Tuesday afternoon, Brianna will be an aunt and I will be a . . . . I can’t say it! I’ll have a granddaughter!! Caleb and Chelsie told Bri that after they hold Evy, they want her to be the first to hold her. She is THRILLED. She is hoping for a red-head so they can be ginger buddies. I’ll post pictures as soon as I can either Tuesday or Wednesday.
I hope your weekend was awesome and your week ahead is blessed!
