Home is Where the Lumberjacks Are!

Every October we make a trip up to Nacogdoches for the SFA Rugby Alumni game. It's nice to go back and see the campus and see what all has changed- if anything. And of course see a ton of our friends!

We had a fun weekend with our friends but the game was short-lived. Sports Clubs ended up canceling the game because of the lightning in the area. We were walking around while the game was going and I noticed everyone's hair was standing on end- literally. I figured it was time for us to go then. I was taking Auggie back to the hotel when Tim called to tell me to pick him back up. 

I love doing comparison pictures. The first year we took Auggie to Nac, I knew this spot would be perfect for future comparison pictures... Well, then the drought swept in and took out a bunch of the pine tree they planted didn't make it. There were only one or two trees in that area that made it but it still made for great pictures. The pictures below are our comparison pictures! Auggie wasn't cooperative when we went in 2012 so this year was the year to get it. Luckily we were able to squeeze in some pictures Saturday morning before the clouds and rain came in.

Auggie loved the pine cones

He wasn't too happy about pictures

Our friends Jenna & Fredy came down from Dallas with their little girl, Lily. She is getting SO big! She and Auggie had a great time running around the Student Center.

Miss Lily!

Auggie's Next Adventure!

"Hi Ho, Hi Ho, It's off to SCHOOL he goes!"

 Auggie qualified for the PPCD program in College Station! He started the day after his 3rd birthday. He'll be going 5 days a week for about 3 hours each day. Last week was only 4 because they had a half day on Wednesday (who does half days in the middle of the week??).

Dropping him off has gotten better with each day. This week he has been excited to go. He seems to really like his teachers.

Tim & I can both tell he's changed even with today being his 6 day. We haven't gotten him to tell what he does during school but he'll answer "yesh" to all the questions.. even if he didn't do it.

Be prepared for a few more posts this week.. I'm trying to catch up!
