Caramel Apples


October is a difficult month for a coach’s family, for the season has begun to grow long and lonely. Reality


has settled in. So over the years, Caramel Apple Sunday has become a tradition we all look forward to.


We washed apples, poked in the sticks, and turned on the stove. You won’t believe how easy it is to make


your own caramel. A cup of cream, a cup of sugar, 1/4 cup dark Karo and 2T. of unsalted butter. Try it!


Everyone brought their own toppings. Nuts, toasted coconut, crushed peppermint and toffee, mini


sprinkles, chocolate chips, Reese's pieces and M & M’s made an appearance this year. There were lot’s


of smiles! There’s nothing quite like women getting together for an afternoon of fun. I’m so thankful for

each of you special ladies and your precious children. You have enriched my life greatly! October has

never felt better! Thanks for the sacrifices you and your children make, that your husband can have a

lasting effect on the lives of young men. The future looks bright in Temple, Texas. Go Wildcats, Go!!!
