This is the cafeteria right across the street from his dorm
where he will eat a lot of his meals. The entire campus is somewhat compact but it is so convenient for him to have this cafeteria right across from his dorm.
This is the Baker Patillo Student Center where most of the orientation meetings and meals were held. This houses a Starbucks, a Barnes and Noble, Chik-fil-a, Panda Express,
a small grocery market, and a movie theater.....
not to mention lots more fast food places, ballrooms,
banquet halls, a bank, and many meeting rooms.
Nacogdoches claims to be the oldest town in Texas and the Old Stone Fort (originally built in 1788....then torn down and an exact replica was rebuilt in 1936) was the first two story building in Texas. It was moved to the SFA campus and just gives a little cuteness to the place. Chuck could tell you more of the history but he'll have to get his own blog. I can just tell you it was cute.
Downtown Nacogdoches......brick streets.
One of my favorite finds was a fabric store among the antique stores. I fell in love with this fabric but it was 49.99 a yard so I just splurged on 1/2 a yard. I am already regretting that I didn't get a whole yard. I have enough to make a pillow, a table runner or another layer in my dining room valance. I'll show a picture of this fabric again in it's new place. All 18 x 54 inches of it.
It's 2 tones of silk woven together....so it looks turquoise/blue/green/lime green
Got a date with my husband for Father's Day. Because he owes me. I made him a father. We're going to see Hangover or The Proposal. Will says we should see Up. Choices.
The best part of the last two days was spending time with Will.....as I know once he's off to college those moments are going to be few and far between. This is the time in my children's life that I start wondering if I've taught them everything they need to know. The answer is no.....
And that is why I am so glad he is God's child. I know he'll be okay.
