We had our first visitors in Texas already! Last Saturday (August 31) was the day of the first A&M home game. They were playing Montana State, and our friends John (fmr player for the Montana team) and Chad from Salt Lake had decided to come get a taste of Aggie spirit. From what I understand, the Aggies are noted for their school spirit, and in fact have training camp (yell practice) before the first game so that freshmen, sophomores, junior and seniors can learn and practice their respective cheers (yells).

John is also the dad of Maren's friend Jonah, so it was awesome and a little hard to see him but not the rest of the family. They came out to the house in the country for a couple hours Saturday so we could show them a little bit of Texas hospitality. They said they had enjoyed the first Aggie yell practice the night before, and had even been invited to a tailgate party for all Bobcat fans at the home of the A&M Vice President later that afternoon!

We really enjoyed the opportunity to entertain out-of-town friends, even for a few hours. We really would love to see more of our friends if you are ever in the neighborhood!

  1. Thanks for spending time with John and I last saturday. There's nothing like Texas hospitality. I told John just before the game started that if we had to leave now, the trip would've been totally worth it. I'll always remember the spider feeding time, that was totally awesome and I didn't at first want to see any spiders.


Thanks for stopping by! I love hearing from you.
