Default 2 More to Aggieland

Jennie and I dropped the twins off at Texas A&M this week. Peyton moved in on Sunday and Paige moved in today. For the first time in their lives, they're not living together....Paige decided on TAMU late and Peyton already had roommates. They are close in proximity though.

Needless to say, their Momma has shed a few tears sending our last kids off to college and I had to stop at Dairy Queen in Navasota on the way home and buy her a Butterfinger Blizzard just to quell the tears, but we're exited about what's to come.

I'm proud of all my girls and Paige and Peyton give Jen and I an 4-0 record when it comes to raising Aggies. I know they'll do well in life and I can't wait to watch the next chapter of their lives.

Only things gonna need support in this empty nest are the bed frames. Notice I used plural. We have the whole dang house to ourselves now.

Congrats man !
Feels good to drop them off and get them out of your house.
But is also a sad day as well.
Good luck on their journey, and be thankful they are doing something with their selves.
Best thing we ever did was get the girls in school.
They never made it back home, and are self supportive and doing great.

Awesome deal and congrats!

My son has been there all week for the start of year 2.
He was home for the summer and his leaving again left another hole, and more tears.
Luckily I got one feeder filling trip out of him before he split.

He did the logging crew thing last year and plans to work on it again this year (if they find new grounds, the previous set up supposedly sold) .

If your girls get into that maybe they'll ....(yikes how do I say this....) .. drink some Gatorade in the same vicinity ....there, I think that was safe enough.

We took ours back to Florida a couple weeks ago. They're on week 3 of classes. I don't think there was as much sadness for mom this time. Fortunately their Christmas break lasts from Thanksgiving to after new years

Wow time flys. I first met y’all in 2014. They were little. I remember telling you one day that you always had the prettiest girls sitting at your table. Including Jen. Congrats on y’all’s accomplishment. Getting kids heading in the right direction is our biggest responsibility and accomplishment in life. I love it when a solid plan comes together. Again, congrats to you and Jenny my friend.

Itís one thing when the first one leaves. When the last one leaves itís kinda final and you realize that your job raising kids is over. You still get to be a dad, but youíve done all the raising your gonna get to do. It comes fast, bro!
