Thanksgiving Break

Albeit entirely too brief, I love Thanksgiving Break. Attending a school that doesn’t offer a fall break, going home for Thanksgiving is our first break since school started. So it’s deservedly welcomed by me and other students.

This year’s break was fairly simple. Thursday brought about Thanksgiving and with it, our traditional family football game. We added a new player this year as Dave brought home his girlfriend, Tera, who admirably held her own. She was covering Jennie most of the afternoon, which in itself is no easy task.

Friday we got our Christmas tree, and as usual it was enormous. I also went out to dinner with TJ and his Aunt Michelle to Hachi Hachi, one of my favorite restaurants. Then TJ and I went home and played three games of ping pong, first to 100 points.

Then on Saturday we woke up early and drove out to Athens for the UGA/Georgia Tech game. We met up with my friends Alyssa and Steven and despite the rain and UGA loss, had a great time. The game turned out to be a classic 45-42 win for the Yellow Jackets and some kid rushed for over 200 yards while Stafford threw for 400+ yards and five touchdowns.

Then on Sunday I drove back to Missouri. Good break.
