We Back the Cats!

Two posts in one day...crazy.
Our alma mater's football team is doing better than ever-- literally, they are making history. They are in the playoffs and today mopped the floor with West Texas A&M! Go Cats, Go!
Yesterday while we were in A-town, we had a couple of hours to kill while Sam and Arly were bringing baby Nathan home (we didn't want to be beating down their door during his homecoming). We thought to ourselves...ACU! We didn't really have enough time to get around and see all of the people we would have wanted to see, so we just let the boys explore their future school. They had a blast and so did we. The campus was buzzing with excitement over all the football festivities and it was fun to be in the midst of it. As you can tell from the photos, we also made a run to the bookstore for a little Wildcat wear.
I wish we were able to be on campus more often so the boys were more familiar with the territory. That place holds so many amazing memories for me. What an awesome four (er, five) years I spent at school there. Okay. I have to stop typing before I start bawling like a baby.
Three cheers for the purple and white!

He was so proud of climbing all the way to the top of the amphitheater.

Singing around the GATA fountain. I wish. They were contemplating jumping in.

While this wasn't the dream shot I had hoped for with the scripture in the background, it was still kind of cute.

This was purely for me. I was trying to get something more "picture-esque" with the purple flowers in the back. He would not look at the camera.

Don't you just love the campus in the fall? Look at the trees. And that adorable kid, too.

Thanks for a great day! It was a lot of fun to see ACU again, and to see the boys enjoying it so much.

Awww, very nostalgic! You know, we've never taken our kiddos to the ACU campus. We need to do that! And I'm SO jealous that the football team is good now. That would have been nice when I was in the band!
