...A Trip to the middle of

...NO WHERE!!

Before Thanksgiving, Nolan & I ventured to Artesia NM to watch my little brother Wesley play football. With HIGH hopes to win, we jumped in the car and drove 6+ hours to really the middle of no-where!! For miles & miles this is all we saw...

We finally got to Roswell and I was relieved to see that there was civilization there! 
(Sharon...I don't know how you did it?!)

...Artesia is HUGE on Football. They have won close to 26 State Championships just in Football. It is probably as close to West Texas Football as we will get. The entire stadium was paid for by on Oil Field company. The ENTIRE town turns our to watch their beloved Bulldogs.


 Our boys were there to win!! When our boys came out to warm up, some of them had there hands cupped, I didn't realize then what was going on. They had taken some of the little black beads off of our home turf to bring to Artesia for luck! They came down through the stands and our crowd was energized!  
The Football game was tough and sadly we didn't end up winning, but it was wonderful to be there to support Wes and watch him play his last football game! 
 We were sad, but happy to think that in a year he will be on a mission! 

...Wes we are very proud of you & can't wait for Basketball season!!
