Our Little Buckaroo is Growing!

Our little buckaroo" will be 10 months old this Saturday... hard to believe. He's just spent a couple of days and nights with us, and we had such a great time together. 

This little outfit - an "OkieDokie" - came from the consignment shop... I think it was $1!!!  Whoever left it there... THANK YOU!  It has a horse with a "mane" on the front, and on the back it says "Giddy-Up!"  But this kid would be adorable in anything, don't you agree?!

Let's Hear it for Arkansas Tech - Go Wonderboys and Golden Suns!

Greg and I traveled to Southaven, Mississippi (just south of Memphis) on Sunday to attend the Gulf South Championship basketball tournament finals.  Both the Wonderboys of Arkansas Tech and the Golden Suns won to take home their conference championship trophies.  We enjoyed watching two great games.  The girls won at the buzzer in double overtime.  The men won on a 3-point shot right before the buzzer. 

Heber Springs' own Laithe Massey is a junior guard for the Wonderboys.  Laithe had the assist for the winning basket in the tournament. We've watched him since he played in high school for the Panthers, and we are proud of him on and off the court.

Tech will host the first round of the NCAA Division II tournament this weekend in Russellville - for women AND men.  We hope to make it to a few games and cheer on our alma mater.  It's great to be an ATU alumnus these days!
