Our Space Raider coach called last night and told us that our little league football organization has the opportunity to play another team (Alvin Yellow Jackets)during halftime of the Texans game on Saturday, August 9! Isn't that awesome? His team has won their league championship for his age group three years in a row, so what a way to end his little league experience! Practice starts later this week, so we are in ROCKY mode...."start singing the tune in your head". He's going to drink raw eggs and run in sweats up and down some stairs!!!! I'm going to get him ready just in case there is a scout out there! For those of you that didn't know, Mitchell plays Fullback and Linebacker. He doesn't carry the ball much, but the ball carrier is always right behind him because he is the lead blocker for the other backs! I think I am more excited than he is! In the picture, he is number 44!

Joe had business in Dallas so we decided to follow him. The first thing Drew asked was, "Are we allowed to do that?" Today, we surprised the boys by taking them to Fossil Rim Wildlife Preserve in Glenrose, Texas. It's a 9.5 mile wildlife park where the animals come right up to your car. It was amazing to see thousands of animals.....The giraffes were beautiful, however, not when their entire head peered into your car and slimed you! Enjoy the slide show!
