I laughed a few weeks ago at my friend, Mandi’s post about football season and “brainwashing” their boys… It was particularly funny because I read the post on an evening when we’d been out “brainwashing” our girls! :)
After our little stadium stop, we took a drive through campus and DW pointed out all the big UF landmarks for AB. She has a “My First Florida” book and has it memorized. One of her favorite places in it is Century Tower, so she asked her Daddy to take us by it, too. Along with all the “famous” UF places, he also rode us by his old apartment and told AB that’s where she could live when she goes to UF. I think he believes if he says “WHEN” instead of “IF” – that she’ll always know there isn’t any other choice when the time comes for her to go to college. :)
It’s always fun to Gator-Game with the crew, but this game was especially fun because Sam & Gracie were here, too! It was Gracie’s first game and she was adorable, “Tebowing” everywhere! :) We went up to the booster tent during halftime to have a snack. On our way back down, we got a quick pic of the four of us.
After watching the Gators play on Saturday, we are all missing the days when we were REALLY good. We all agreed with my FIL, who said he was really hoping that the Gators were keeping all their good plays top secret for this week’s game. A win is a win, though, and we’ll take it.
On Sunday night, we went to dinner for Sam’s last night at home. Since we were already in Gainesville, we decided to take a detour over to the Women’s Soccer game. (It was announced at the football game the day before and my ears perked up since we have a soccer player in our family now).
We had our picture with Alberta and stayed for half of the first half of the game.
We couldn’t really tell if AB was having a good time or not, until we left and she said, “Why we’s leaving? I wanted to watch ‘dat soccer game.” Maybe we’ll take her back to another game before the season is over. Poor DW. He’s a great Daddy for sure! :)
Such Gator Fun!
