Stephen F. Austin State University

I had never been to SFA before. This weekend we moved our son up to his new school. It is a much bigger university than I realized. There are about 12,000 students there. The campus is really big, and really pretty. It is a Division I school. And while it is a bigger school, it is not as expensive as some out there. My son is really looking forward to his new adventure there. I hope all turns out really good for him! That I'd like to see.

bicycle wreck

I've never been in a bicycle wreck. I know that only jinxes myself... But my husband was recently involved in an accident with four other guys. Thankfully no one was seriously injured, though one guy did end up with a fractured clavicle. Lots of scrapes and blood and bruises though. I am wondering though with no physical life insurance or health insurance just how wise it is for us to be involved! I just keep praying the Lord keeps us safe! That I'd like to see.

relay only tri

I've never been to a relay only tri.

We have debated on doing a relay only tri. It looks like we might have a team set up for this four person event. Each person can only do one leg of the tri, which consists of an 1100 yd swim, two 5K runs and a 12.5 mile bike. Though some of the things seem a bit confusing, especially the swim, it looks to be a fun day.

That I'd like to see.

Friday cycling group

I had never been to a local Friday cycling group before. Today I was off and was happy to find that four other folks were cycling today too! We had a pleasant 25 mile ride. I got to meet some new people and enjoy the weather and the good ride. Hopefully this will lead to finding some new training buddies in the future. That I'd like to see.

Grand Cayman

I've never been to Grand Cayman. This is another of our slated stops on our upcoming cruise. It looks amazingly beautiful! I don't know if we will dive here, or see the stingrays, or just lay on the beach. At any rate, I can't wait to pack up our jansport school backpacks and find the adventure waiting for us at Grand Cayman! That I'd like to see.

I've never been to an internship. My son finishes up his first internship this week. He has spent all summer working with a natural gas trading company. He has learned a lot and had a good experience. It has been an amazing job for a 19 year old! I hope this is just the first of many good experiences leading him to find his niche. That I'd like to see.

Trevi Fountain

I've never been to the Trevi Fountain. This most famous of Rome's outdoor fountains has a legend all its own. They say that if you stand with your back to the fountain and toss a coin into it you will return to Rome someday. I am not sure I will ever get to see the Trevi Fountain much less return to it. But I do know that I could replicate the sight and sound by putting large outdoor fountains in my own backyard! That I'd like to see.
