Sic 'Em, Bears!

Post-Game celebration after a win over Kansas State
It's not easy to be a Baylor Bear football fan.  Not a lot of winning games or seasons to brag about and lots of losses to mourn ... but this year has truly been a fun year to cheer on the Bears!

What a season this has been and what a fabulous homecoming game!!  Read all about this WIN for the Bears and how it made our team eligible for a Bowl Game for the first time since 1994.

Baylor Bear Homecoming Win

Right now, I'm sitting at my computer with a Mack Brown press conference on the television.  I am REALLY enjoying listening to his assessment of Baylor.  It's not often other coaches have much good to say about Baylor and this is fun for me.  Coach Brown just listed some of Baylor's "impressive" stats and said (referring to the Baylor/UT game this weekend), "This is not a week we will have trouble respecting Baylor.  They're ranked.  We're not."

Our boys have worked hard for years but for whatever reason [insert any number of coach/player/fan/random-stranger-on-the-street theories here], they have not been as successful as they'd like to be ... or that we, their loyal fans, would like them to be.

Lots more theories detail the reasons for Baylor's success this year ... superstar QB Robert Griffin III is the center of much talk as is Coach Art Briles.  I don't have personal theories on any of the above dicussions but plan to enjoy the success and continue to cheer on my Bears.

Keep up with the Baylor season at the Baylor University Football website ... and cheer on our Bears as they enjoy a great season of football fun!

Kids' Craft: The Invisible String

Our battalion used this book at a recent Family Night event.  We wanted to have some meaningful activities for them to complete during the meeting and came up with a goody bag of things to do.  I'll post about that later, and use this post to talk about this adorable book that I now love. 

At the meeting, we had a large room that we divided in half (half for adults, half for kids).  All the kids were together in one corner of the room with volunteers there to help.  One of these (fabulous!) volunteers read this book aloud to them to start the activities. 

It's a sweet story; from the description:  Specifically written to address children's fear of being apart from the ones they love, The Invisible String delivers a particularly compelling message in today's uncertain times that though we may be separated from the ones we care for, whether through anger, or distance or even death, love is the unending connection that binds us all, and, by extension, ultimat…

Okay, I have to admit that after 15+ years as an Army wife, I don’t know what ‘TORCH’ and ‘ADVON’ stand for. Something about advanced party … but there’s no ‘p’ for ‘party’ … so I just don’t know. I do, however, know what it means. It means your Soldier comes home FIRST!!

We’ve never had the honor of either of those designations. My husband somehow manages to get himself into the ‘stay-behind-and-make-sure-all is-well-out-here’ job and comes home late or last. Not that I’m complaining, though, as I am happy these TORCH and ADVON folks get here and get the place ready for everyone else to come home.

In a way, it’s reassuring to me. The wheels are turning, the process has begun … our unit actually is coming home and coming home soon! Homecoming becomes reality, not just a long-sought-after dream. It’s good to see our unit patch and our unit Soldiers back at home, on U.S. soil and on our Army installation.

It’s heartening to wa…

The Change of Command Ceremony

Last Friday, my Family and I participated in the 2nd Brigade, 1st Cavalry Division change of command on Fort Hood, Texas.  Hubby became the battalion commander of the 3rd Battalion, 82nd Field Artillery Regiment and joined a wonderful group of "Red Dragon" Soldiers and Families.  It's a dream come true for us ... one of those things you hope in the back of your mind you'll get to do one day, but know realistically that the chances are slim you'll get to do it.

When I first saw his name on 'the list' that the Army publishes, I was elated for him.  No one knows more than I do his passion for the Army and for the Soldiers in it.  He is a wonderful leader and cares so much.  We both knew that this would be the adventure of a lifetime.  We explained this new job to our two boys (ages ten and six) as best we could and they kept saying, "We'll have 500 new friends on Friday!" as their summary of the discussion.  =)

The ceremony was amazing, a stand…
