And so it begins...

Well it's official, football season is here. Although my heart belongs to Texas Tech, living in Waco we have become Baylor fans. My parents have had season tickets to BU football for the last couple of years but this year they bought 4 tickets so Mark and Ryan can enjoy some live football action as well. (Thanks Honey and GP!!!) I remember praying when I found out that we were having a little boy that he would really bond with his dad, and the Lord answered my cry in ways that I could not imagine. Ryan has always been a Daddy's boy. They LOVE spending time together, and they especially enjoy watching sports. The very first night that Ryan was born, they watched a Texas Ranger Baseball game in the hospital, and from that night on, his love of sports was born. He has definitely had his favorites over the last 4 years. It started with baseball. He could name almost all the Texas Rangers players and their numbers when he was 2!!! It was something to see, this little tike walking around telling all our friends about baseball:). Then he fell in love the the Disney Cars movie...and he was immediately fascinated with NASCAR. In fact, Mark and I had never really watched a race, but before long he again knew all the drivers, numbers and their sponsors. Last year Ryan really started to get into football. He has these little football helmets that he gets out for games. He lines them up perfectly so we all know who's playing who each week. As a mom, I just really appreciate the fact that my two boys have so much in common...most of the time:) Here's some pictures of the gang headed to the game last night. Ryan had a blast and can't wait to go again. He came home with this HUGE Big Red mustache that did not come off in the bath last night, or this morning...lovely for school!
