We've had a good weekend.
The BEST part of the weekend was that our college boy came home! We were so excited to see Logan on Friday afternoon! He got in just in time for a quick dinner on the way to Clark's football game. I was so thankful that he was able to be there, even tho Clark didn't play very much. I just know it meant the world to Clark, even tho he probably wouldn't admit it! Y'all know how boys are! And we won, so that's always good!
On Friday afternoon, Holly made Logan a Nutella cake as a "welcome home" surprise. Logan loves Nutella SO MUCH. The cake was really good! We busted out that bad boy after the game. Jim said it was the best cake he'd ever tasted...and, "if only it had pecans, that would take it over the top." He's pretty much the dessert connoisseur around here, so that was very high praise.
Jim got up early on Saturday morning and ran in a 5k...and Clark was out the door before 7:30 for a Key Club service project. The rest of us, as Joshua says, just "hanged around" the house. Logan went to meet a friend for lunch. Holly and Aaron came over and swam...Joshua and Clark got in the pool and they had a big time. Not much better than hearing the laughter of your kids...no matter how old they are.
Unless they're laughing at you.
Last night we watched the games here at home. Our Razorbacks and Red Wolves lost again. Boo. But the OBU Tigers won again. Yay!
This morning, we went to church and then headed down to meet Jim's parents for lunch. Logan wanted to see them this weekend. Holly and Aaron joined us. Even tho it was wild and unorganized, as usual, we had a really nice visit. After lunch, we took Logan to fill up his car with gas. It was pouring down rain. Morgan's mom brought her over to meet him in the WM parking lot...and they left to head back to school from there.
I know...this post is a snooze-fest.
Tomorrow night, Clark's JV team plays at home. So excited! And it's almost October!
And, lastly...Aaron rode in the back of the Suburban with Joshua on the way home from lunch. We had 6 people in the Burb, so it was 2-2-2. It's a 45 minute drive, and Joshua talked the ENTIRE time to Aaron, mostly about the "stories" that he's writing. Bless Aaron's heart. When we got back to town, we dropped Clark off at the church because we had left his car there this morning. Joshua said to Aaron, "you can sit up there with your wife if I'm getting on your nerves." Aaron looked at him and said, "you're not getting on my nerves, buddy."
Is that not the sweetest thing? Love my son-in-law.
