We had another great Texas fall weekend, which of course is more like early summer. Friday night we took a little road trip down to Lorena (near Waco) to watch my cousin play football. He's a senior this year, which makes me feel especially old since I remember driving myself to the hospital to see him when he was born. That's old lady status right there.

We had a great time and got to see quite a bit of our family: aunts, uncles, cousins, plus my parents and grandparents. It was their homecoming game, and my aunt had the little lady a mum and brother a shirt with my cousin's number on it. He loved his shirt, and the little lady who loves accessories loved her mum. She was delighted by it. Thanks, Aunt Julie!

On our way home, we stopped in West, Texas for kolaches. West is the same small town that had a large devastating explosion last year, where lives were lost and their schools and many homes were damaged. Before that happened, West was known in our great state for the Czech Stop and it's delicious kolaches. It's open 24 hours, and when we went through there at nearly midnight, there was still a 15 minute wait in line.

We got home so late Friday night, and the kids slept an entire 15 minutes later than normal. (Thanks, kids.) So we had kolaches for breakfast before watching a lot of football the rest of the day. No soccer this week!

After a morning at church, an afternoon nap, Pure Barre, and a grocery trip to stock myself with Diet Coke, we're ready to greet the week.
