Fan Appreciation Day At Clemson!!

 This past Sunday, the family and I went to fan appreciation day at Clemson University!! I am pleased to say the we had so much fun! Josh and Katie was getting all the autographs that they could and I will admit that I even seen Josh break in front of a few people. We did not get Sammy Watkins autograph :( the line for him was just absolutely crazy. We did try but if we would have got his we would not have had time to get other autographs and pictures. The main person I wanted was Dabo Swinney  and we did get his along with some great snap shots! I love Dabo, I love to hear him talk and think he is a wonderful coach, The funniest story behind our little trip to see Dabo is, the whole trip up to Clemson, Michael was like.. I will be sure you get Dabo's autograph and just being all tough with the ego of a "man" well as soon as we got close to Dabo and it was our time to go up to him... Michael got starstruck and forgot about me being the one that loves Dabo. Michael hands me the camera and says take my picture, and then Dabo speaks to Michael and he studers. He could not even talk!! Finally after Michael was done and he takes my picture with him,

 It was just a wonderful day. It was things I did not get to do as I was growing up just because football was not my family's thing. I now could not live without football!! I love football

Too blessed to be stressed...

   Too blessed to be stressed.. Those are the words I have been trying to remember this week, I guess it has been a bittersweet week for me, and the good always out weighs the bad if you just stop and think about it.
 Within this week my two girls have started cheer leading practice and my son has started football practice and with that it includes trips to the shoe store to buy the right kind of shoes for the sport and for Josh you have to buy helmet and pads ( all that football stuff). The bitter part of the story is that my car has been in the shop all week. What a bummer and when you don't have a car, boy do you become grateful for you car when you do have it. When I get my car back I am giving her a good bath and going to buy a new front plate or something. LOL
 Moving on to a better note, my kids are all doing a sport now and school starts in a week, so we are about to start a busy time for our family, but I feel really blessed that I am able to put my kids in sports and feel even more blessed that Michael will be able to watch them this year!! He has been on second shift for so long and the kids have really missed him watching them do there sports.
 So we have been stressed being without a car and hitching a ride to this place and that place but more so we are so blessed to have the things we do have. I thank God everyday for my many blessings....
