Woodruff Wins!!!!

Woodruff beat Abbeville last night 38-21!!! Woodruff played one of the best games I've seen them play this year. If they can keep playing like that, they WILL win state!

Now they face Pageland Central (Chesterfield County) this Friday at 7:30. Unfortunately, I won't be able to go. Septtro and I will be away from one another at Thanksgiving but hopefully, it'll be worth it. :) Death Valley, here we come!!!

So most of you know - but maybe some don't - that Septtro helps coach the offensive line at Woodruff High School. He LOVES it there. The school is awesome and the community is even better.

The team is in the 3rd round of playoffs for the first time since 2003. They have the potential to win state. Today, they go to Abbeville.

Abbeville is undefeated this season (although some may say they don't really play very many tough teams during the regular season). They haven't lost a regular season home game since 2005. We played them earlier in the season; losing by just two points (we made a lot of mistakes - probably one of the worst games we've played). They're a tough team. But I believe Woodruff is better - and no, I'm not biased - not at all.

I can't wait to go watch the game! It's gonna be a good one! Although, either way, it will be a bit bitter-sweet for me. I want them to win, but if they win, Septtro will not be able to go with us to Pennsylvania for Thanksgiving as they'll play that Friday. As much as I'd really like to be with Septtro on Thanksgiving, you don't have many opportunities to coach a state championship team so I'd rather them win tonight. If they do win tonight, they better win next Friday - I'm not gonna be away from my hubby for nothin! :)
Check out their website. GO WOLVES!!

Blog You Should Read

Sometimes I go from one person's blog to the next, to the next, to the next. It makes me wonder, sometimes, how many people read my blog that I'm not aware of. After all, there are several people I've never met that have blogs I read. You never know how God will use something as simple as a blog. I came across one in particular that was such an incredible story I thought I'd share.

If I'm not mistaken, this is the blog of Todd and Angie Smith's young daughter, Audrey. Todd is a member of the Christian group, Selah. The web address is:

Be sure you give yourself plenty of time to read various posts. I started at the beginning. Their testimony is so incredible and her blog is such an encouragement to me. I couldn't help but sit there and read - crying, rejoicing, and hoping.

In other news, my friend, Cortney, finds out if her baby is a boy or girl today. I didn't expect the emotions this would bring. I'm so thrilled for her. I guess I can't help but miss being in that same situation. Peanut would have been 23 weeks as of yesterday. Shawna finds out whether I'll be getting a niece or nephew on December 3rd. As excited as I am, I'm finding it harder and harder to not feel sad and disappointed as these various milestones continue to pass. Not my plans, God, but yours! Not my timing, but yours! "I'm letting go, of the life I planned for me - and my dreams...." God help me to let go of what I had planned for myself and accept where you've placed me. May I be content with the circumstances I'm in and continue to trust in you.

5K Race

I decided to try it - run a 5K. I run with Suka almost every night...probably about 1.5 miles or so. Somebody at work wanted to sponsor someone for the Lungs for life 5K here in Greenville so I decided to give it a whirl. My mom went with me but she mostly walked. I came in just over 27 minutes. Although I wanted to win, my goal was just to run the entire time without stopping and I did. So yay!

There were several people there with dogs so I felt bad for not bringing Suka. She could have walked with mom but I had no idea they would allow that. There were also SEVERAL strollers....ANNOYING!!!! Not that I'm against doing that with strollers but c'mon - move to the side. It was the first year for this so maybe they'll let the runners go first next year or something. I got frustrated a little bit tryin to weave my way through the people walking or barely jogging. But hey, I got some exercise and it was for a good cause so all in all, it was a fun morning! Here are some pics...
