Alex's version of Heaven!


This last week Alex went to OU Football Camp in Norman. It was a 3 day camp and the boys stayed overnight in the dorms. I have to say I was extremely nervous sending him to the camp. When we signed him up last November I obviously did not completely think through the whole, overnight in the dorms in a college town thing.....but he LOVE LOVE LOVED it!

He went with two of his buds from school. It was a great growing up experience for him....He had to set his alarm and wake up for breakfast and practice. He had to get himself to the cafeteria for breakfast, lunch, and dinner and be responsible for all his own "stuff".... He had to remember to lock his door when he left his dorm room (which was a little difficult since he had never really used a key before!!) He did an incredible job and I am so proud of him......

The OU coaches put on the camp every year for 3rd grade through 8th grade and then on another week for high school....I think it's really neat that all of the OU football coaches show up and teach the boys what they know. Alex got to meet Bob Stoops (and Bob's son was even on Alex's team) he worked directly with Coach Gundy and Coach Veneables....he was a little starstruck!
