Here is our little "rocket woman" (minus her face paint and with reindeer horns), leading the high school band at the Robinson Christmas parade. The weather was wonderful and everyone had a great time!!

Robinson Loses Heartbreaker

Being busy has kept me from posting results from the football game. That and being totally upset about the outcome. Robinson lost 35-34, on a bumbled play for the extra point when going for 2 with 18 seconds left in the game. It was hard to understand why the coach didn't have them just go for the kick to tie and then let them pound it out in overtime. At least that way the boys could have felt like they tied them in regulation play. I guess we were lucky to even be that close when we allowed their defense to score three touchdowns on two fumbles and a blocked kick. But, the guys have nothing to be ashamed of. It is just so sad that they came so close to not come away with the championship.........

Robinson Advances to State Playoff

Robinson has made it to the State playoff. They beat Ingleside 62-21 Friday night. Greg was not able to get off work for us to go so I picked up chinese food and we sat in the warmth and comfort of our own home and listened to it on the radio. There was sleet and a few snow flurries before and during the game even though New Braunfels is farther south. Morgan has been a "sort of" mascot during the playoff games. The band directors asked her if she would be interested in doing it and they rounded up a costume from several years ago, cape and "beanie" included. She also paints her face blue and white, the school colors. She has been called "rocket woman" (we are the Robinson Rockets) but maybe "rocket person" is more politically correct. She runs out on the field at the end of the halftime show and then stays down there through the end of the game. She is having a blast (no pun intended) doing it!! I will try to snag a picture to put on the blog. We play a team from Texarkana on Saturday, 6 PM, at the SMU stadium in Dallas. The stadium holds 32,000. I have no doubt that the Robinson side will be full!! This is sooooo exciting!!

Robinson Rolls On

Robinson beat West Columbia last Friday night, 42-14. They now play Ingleside tomorrow night in New Braunfels in the semi-final game. The kids are getting out of school at around noon. It is a three hour trip for us, at best. Especially on school buses and trying to get through the capital city of Austin where traffic can come to a stand still on any given day at any given time. I hope the last person that leaves Robinson turns off the lights........

And just for information purposes, two bushels of oysters from Joe Patti's are a few too many........
