Where the Weekend Went

Saturday was a beautiful morning for driving...Hubby was heading east, then south...his band was playing in a Jazz Club in downtown Sioux Falls. I was heading east, then north...for various college activities.

I arrived in time for lunch. We had a bowl of Southwest Chicken Soup at Sandellas...right across the street from campus...
... ...and to Emily's delight...they were finally pouring cement...this street has been under construction for years...she and Jake have been crossing this muddy street all fall to get to class...




It was Recruitment Day/Parent Weekend for the Bison lacrosse team. Since Jake's parents live in Seattle, I was honored to attend as his substitute mom. Wearing #5, he is a team captain, a leader on the field.

It was cold and wet...we spectators were wrapped in blankets...so not much for pictures...sorry...





Tailgating was also cold and wet...

Here is the band...marching around the backside of the Fargo Dome.

Since the football team cannot seem to win, the band was, again, the highlight of the evening.






Emily sat in the reserved section with me. She had her flashcards handy for when there was a break in the action.



After a bite to eat, I checked in with Weber...Cathy and Keith went out with another couple after the game, so I beat them home.
This morning, I had a wonderful visit with Cathy. She was a good friend in college...and a good friend to this day...

You can fill up a weekend calendar can't you? So nice you could step in for Jake's parents. I am sure he appreciated that very much.
