welcome to the SEC!

James and I got to attend the home opener Aggie game last weekend!  It was the first game being in the SEC, and it was fun because ESPN College GameDay was there!  Although we lost to Florida, it was a GREAT first half and just being in Kyle Field is electric!

Can you see the College GameDay guys filming?

first game

Rilyn went to her first Aggie game yesterday. Sadly, we lost (39-49) to a #3 ranked team (that will remain nameless), but we played hard and the game was very entertaining! At times, I got emotional thinking of my oldest daughter walking around the campus where James and I met. It was so neat to see her experience Aggie football-something James and I both love. She did great and stayed up the whole game (7 p.m. kick-off). How could she sleep when Visor Guy is sitting in front of her?  There was a long time out (like 10 minutes), because a player was hurt and it was very quiet in the stadium of 84,500 fans.  After awhile, Rilyn said rather loud, “Is he dead daddy?”  We heard a few chuckles from the fans around.  Then she said, “We should pray for him.”  She proceeded to pray out loud for the hurt player.  It was so sweet to hear.
Enjoy the pictures!
