Tuesday Already.....

Well, here is is Tuesday already. I can't believe how fast the weeks go. We had a great weekend and managed to keep quite busy. We had tickets to the UNI Homecoming Football game on Saturday which was fun. We had 6 tickets and went with R & M and our good friends Rick and Tracie.












R & M gave Steve and I UNI t-shirts to wear to the game so we could show Purple Pride. Our team won, which is always fun! With a child at all 3 state universities we have never become true fans of any one team. It's just best to stay neutral...... But I'm happy when any of those teams win. (Always difficult when they play each other, however!!)












Sophie is growing by leaps and bounds. She is getting more and more daring with her interactions with the llamas. We even caught her in the pasture with them and had to put cattle panels up across the gates so she couldn't slip in there any more. When she is bigger and the llamas are used to her it won't be a problem, but I'm afraid that they could stomp on her. (Which is how they defend themselves!)











It's a good thing she doesn't know how to climb a fence. She so wants to play with Hoover the alpaca!
















The weather is certainly cooling off. Great for running! I did a 2 mile run yesterday (my first in 10 days) and it felt great. My heel twinged just a bit, but no pain really. I hope to do 3-4 miles today and slowly build up. Oh, I had to show you these fun socks I got from my friend Renae. They are my favorite socks to wear when I'm not wearing my hand knit ones.






Sumo is still adjusting to life with Sophie. He actually 'played' with her for 25 minutes the other day. It was fun to watch. Completely wore him out!! He still prefers the SFZ (Sophie Free Zones) but does join us when he thinks it's safe. I keep telling him she will grow up one day. I don't think he believes me.......






Until Next Time....

Love the socks - how cute!

Yes, Sophie is certainly growing. I bet she can't wait to be old enough to play with the llamas (or however you spell it).

My bf Steve informed me that Iowa plays UNI next year at Kinnick. LoL If I can get tickets this will be an interesting game. Grats on winning. UNI is a cute little campus, surprised at how many maors it has etc. But it's good for Steve to have options. i met Kirsten last week on my way to class. She was sitting in front of Daum knitting waiting for her roommates car. She's really sweet and a great knitter. =) I hope you have a great week, I'm dealing with midterms right now, done with one and have 2 to go. Ew, can't wait for this week to be over hahaha. Have a great one! Btw, Sophie is adorable! I wish I had a puppy again for the cuddle moments, nothing else =P

Wow..3 state universities..you should get some kind of special achievement award from your state! I love the socks they are so cute. Sophie is adorable, I think she and my Molly would get into some trouble together.

Poor Sumo looks so tired. Puppies can do that. I still think when she settles down a little, they will be good friends.
