Now! To end this post on a lighter note. My little, just turned 3, grandaughter Carter, is visiting. As you can IMAGINE.........she is an absolute delight!
...... and we are having non-stop fun....with the emphasis on NON-STOP! In fact, I'd forgotten how 'non-stop' a 3 year old is....after all it's been over 20 years since I had a three year old. (Pictured below from left to right, in 1985, Beth 4, Kim 2 and Clint >1)
and just for fun let's get a little closer look....
My, how time flies!
Anyway, back to Carter....she is a well loved little girl, that plays a starring role in her family. She's as bright as the sun, playful as a puppy, sweet as honey and wise beyond her years, for like she says most mornings when she wakes up, "It's a beautiful day"! ...and she's absolutely right.
Though how often do I forget?
That rain or shine, win or loose...we all have so much to be thankful for! May I never cease to be amazed by God's lavish beauty, goodness and grace...

Last Friday night was the 48th time that Abilene Cooper and Abilene High have lined up against each other. Out of 48 games Cooper has won 30, AHS 16, with 1 tie. Needless to say, in a town of approx. 100,000, this game has been a longtime rivalry. However the 2008 season brings major changes, for the 1st time, the two teams are no longer district opponents. Earlier this year Cooper was dropped to class 4-AAAA due to a lower enrollment, leaving Abilene High in 5-AAAAA classification. The short of it is, for the next two years when we play each other it will not be for championships, just city braggin' rights! Which any coach, athlete, fan will tell you is a REALLY BIG DEAL!!!
