GO HUSKERS!!



We had a blast at the game! Here we are pre-game...everyone in the city seems to wear Nebraska gear, whether you are going to the game or not. We gathered at the motel to organize a plan and drive together...



This is just before opening kick off...there were 85,400+ people there. Lots of excitement in the stadium.
Did I mention that it was cold?! Probably not much more than 35 degrees and the wind made it
pretty chilly...our friends from Grand Island are standing on the otherside of our dauther...they are dressed in the typical gear of the day: long underwear, jeans, wind pants, shirt, hooded sweatshirt, Husker parkas, hats, scarves, gloves and boots.

We were each given a balloon to release on the first score...and score, they did! The Huskers beat the Jayhawks 45-35.

We've had a great weekend. Today, we return to the real world including a 7 hour drive home, a bulging bag of schoolwork, and ice and snow in the Dakotas. Since I haven't been in my classroom since last Wednesday, I'm not sure what they accomplished with the sub...
so tomorrow morning,
I plan to punt!

Go Huskers!! I don't know how you guys sat out in that cold wind the whole game! It was soooo cold. The wind has finally died down today.

Congrats on your daughter with her white coat ceremony. I drive past her college frequently on my way to Hobby Lobby. :)

Sounds like so much fun - even in the cold. I love the balloon release idea!

WoW! What a sea of RED at that football game! Looks like so much fun...I am jealous you got to be with your girls......I won't see mine until Thanksgiving.

And as for your "punt" comment, I will have to use that....I may be punting tomorrow after our assembly!

Happy Monday!
