Just A Hodgepodge of Stuff

Since we did not have our usual Wednesday Hodgepodge last week, I am going to have my own

This past week was another eventful week sports wise for a couple of our grands.

The Western Michigan Broncos are one of five undefeated teams in the nation and now 9-0.
For the third week in a row they are ranked in the top 25 national teams, and possibly heading to a New Years Day Bowl game.
This great picture of our Big Boy #65 was captured and I love the intensity on that handsome face.  His quarterback called him one of the toughest on the offensive line.

 Not to be outdone by her big brother's teams success, Savannah's Penn H. S. girl's soccer team won State in the Indiana Class 2A championship.
She is on the right #33.  They are some very proud girls and rightly so.  They were denied the title last year by one point.  We were able to watch the game on the computer and it was championship play for sure.
Jackson's coach allowed him to take time off to go to Indianapolis to support his little sister in her last high school soccer match.

Meet the Herdmans
Our youngest granddaughter will be playing the part of Gladys in the "Creative Arts for Christ" production of "The Greatest Christmas Pageant Ever" at the Eiseman Performing Arts Theater in Richardson, Texas Thanksgiving weekend. She is the fierce looking one at the top middle.
We can't wait to see both performances.
For her 4th grand class Career Day last week, she dressed up as an actress.  Yes, she has the acting bug.  I think she looks very Audrey Hepburn-isc.

I mentioned in a previous post that a friend had asked me to paint something for her refurbished guest bath.  This was the finished product and I think she was pleased.  It certainly brightened the room.

This morning I took a walk around the neighborhood after coming back from the gym and I was struck by the conflict of seasons so typical of this part of the south.
 Beautiful late blooming trumpets,
 gorgeous, full red roses,
 colorful fall leaves on lush green grass,
 pecans waiting to be released from their crusty shells,
 Azaleas and Shasta Daisies,
Bougainvillea, ferns, and fall mums at the door.

Yes, the south is an interesting place to live, indeed.

And one more thing!

After tomorrow,
I do however, pray for the grace to live with the results.
