Then Steve got to dine on a fine cafeteria meal, while all of the kids at the table chatted it up, sneezed on their food and shared items with each other.

Later that day, I went up to the school to have lunch with my buddy. I snuck in a McDonald's happy meal (his favorite) in his lunchbox, and he was the king at the lunch table because he shared his french fries with his friends.
I froze my bootie off (do you notice the sweatshirt that Preston wears every time he goes to the cafeteria?).
I didn't believe Pres that his class sits at the tables under the air conditioning vents, and that it would be cold enough to warrant a sweatshirt, but it is!

Of course, Alabama is off to another strong start this season, and rolled all over Colorado State. Even though it was pretty clear that they were going to win, Preston had NO desire to leave, and wanted to stay for his first entire game.

Preston passed out on the car ride home, but he will easily say it was one of the best birthdays he has had! Happy 9th Birthday Buddy, can't wait to see how the next year shapes up! You are a caring, competitive young man with an analytical brain that never stops thinking...you will go far in life!
