Wild Weekend

Baylor Homecoming was not as big of a deal for us this year as it has been in years past. The kids all had their activities so we snuck in a few Homecoming activities where we could. I am so glad that we were all able to make it to the game. The best part is that we were able to tolerate the first 3 quarters and stay for the exciting victory! Sometimes Baylor will just knock your socks off! Our football seats seem to be surrounded by Shawn Bell haters. They are quite vocal about their feelings. It is hard to tolerate especially since Evan and Shawn have such a special friendship. Shawn may not be the most talented QB but he is a wonderful, moral and kind young man. I would rather have my children look up to him than some highly successful, rude, obnoxious player. Evan has been blessed by Shawn and even Drew is coming back around. He asked for a BU Homecoming shirt and even wore a Baylor shirt to school!

Speaking of Evan, he is doing fairly well. If we are firm about his sleeping and eating patterns, he does well. He is doing excellent in school. He enjoys doing math with the 3rd graders and a recent field trip with GT. He is a soccer superstar and recently made a goal worthy of an ESPN highlight. He still deals with residual from either the medication or the stifling of the seizures. We have seen no signs of seizures in a long time and for that we are grateful. God is so good and so faithful. Evan still feels strongly about going to Africa and now thinks he wants to be a doctor so he can tell them about Jesus while he helps get them better.

On a lighter note, Mark was greeted by a SOUP pyramid in front of his office door Friday! His coworkers asked what he liked and I mentioned that I was thinking of doing a soup party for him because he likes soup. This is a very creative group of people. If you work on campus and you forget your lunch or run out of cash, stop by his office and pick up a can of soup! It's Mmmmm good!


By the way, Mark decided against having a princess party. He wanted Lindsay to have fond memories of her friends dressed up. I think that is best. Seeing Bart, Steve or Alan dressed as Princesses might be more than we could handle. He did enjoy the princess birthday cards, especially the one with the tiara that he cut out and wore!
