Scenic Evenings & $300 Toilet Paper

This time of year Josh, Ava, and I love to get lost on the little dirt roads around our house. Here are a few of the highlights from our most recent trip.

Mommy smiling like a goofball, Ava looking glamorous

Daddy at the wheel
(if you look closely you can see Kanye West, Love Lockdown playing on the radio)

gorgeous sunset


goats, a tree, and some cows

sometimes all that driving works up our appetite

Please don't mistake the last portion of this post for "sour grapes". However, the Baylor Law scholarship folks really put our little family through a roller coaster ride. For almost two months they promised to "have a final decision by early next week". We knew Josh was accepted, but couldn't ever get a straight answer about funding. We acknowledge that God had something completely different in mind for us, and are thankful for our Oklahoma-singing-neon-flashing sign. Even so, I still hiss when we drive by the law school in me immature or a good Aggie, either way I am what I am. ANYWAY, this week Josh and I have had two good laughs at the expense of Baylor Law.

Laugh #1: They sent him an email requesting a 100% "Yes" that he would be attending, though they already greedily gobbled up our $300 non-refundable seat deposit (paid while we were still in limbo). They want the answer within the week. It took every ounce of self-control in me not to send an email to them that said "We'll have a final decision by early next week." Grrr. They'll find out he's not coming when his hot body isn't in the seat on May 4.

Laugh #2: Josh received this lovely t-shirt in the mail. Know what I call it?
