We had some friends over to watch State take on South Carolina. For the most part, the men ended up in front of the TV while the women hovered around the food. We are so glad that it is finally college football season. We are the eternal optimists for both MS State and Vandy. We mean it this time, THIS is our year!

The sadness did not end there. We learned through Randy Hays, VP for Student Affairs at Centre, that Centre '04 alum Scarlett Parsley was also on the plane. She was bound for her honeymoon with her husband, Jon Hooker, having just married the night before. Scarlett was in the entering class at Centre in my very first year working there. I can remember her beautiful smile and warm personality as she went through sorority recruitment pledging Kappa Alpha Theta. She was also a cheerleader. In my final year working at Centre, Scarlett graduated, right on time.
Please pray for these families as they grieve this very sudden loss.
"Be joyful always; pray continually;give thanks in all circumstances, for this is God's will for you in Christ Jesus."

Little Philip's last week with Miss Sarah was this week. It is a bittersweet end but not goodbye. We are so very sad to lose Miss Sarah but are so excited to welcome her baby into the world in just a few weeks! Little Philip just woke up from a nap in this picture and clearly, the hair monster came to visit.

We are starting to think about Halloween costumes for Little Philip. He started walking yesterday, a bit wobbly but enough weight bearing steps to have whisked out the baby book to record this momentous date. We are thinking little cowboy, monkey, or some kind of cute cuddly adorable animal that can run around at the festivals. Googling online reveals some costumes that are just wrong in so many ways. Take a look.

Recently, we kept the Hensleys' daughter, Sophia, while her mommy went into preterm labor with her sister, Gabrielle. We are happy to report that Gabrielle is doing well and gaining weight steadily. We LOVED keeping Sophia and despite what everyone may think, it was easy! Sophia and Philip entertained each other the entire time. We put them in the wagon and pulled them around the neighborhood. When people drove by they would honk. I like to think that they were saying "Now there's a mother of twins that has it all together." I have to admit I was a bit proud. BUT, as with any good thing, it came to an end and Sophia went back home to her loving parents. We captured a few good pictures of our weekend together and look forward to more playtime together soon.
