Yep, it's my favorite time of the year again!!! Football season!
I love emailing my friends on Friday mornings (Happy Game Day!), the way the day cannot go fast enough for me, making sure my camera battery is charged, my memory card cleared (always have a backup), the restless anticipation, and then (FINALLY) heading to the game, hearing the drum line warming up while I'm still in the parking lot, and smelling hotdogs on the grill. THEN comes the warm up, getting chills when The Star-Spangled Banner plays, making sure my camera settings are right, flipping of the coin, shaking hands, and the whistle on the kick-off. Whew! Then the game goes by in a flash! Halftime--change camera settings. Second half goes faster than the first. Win! Go home happy, but wishing it had not gone by so fast, and not wanting the day to end.
Saturday morning uploading photos. Editing and cropping over several cups of coffee (my family knows this is where I will be--no making breakfast on Saturdays in the fall), uploading to the website, listening to College Game Day ("Yeah, we're comin' to your ci-tay"--hey there, Kirk Herbstreit...), searching for music for making video, uploading to facebook, making sure all are up and running correctly.
Then...spending the rest of the day watching college games (hoping the Aggies are on tv).
That's pretty much my schedule during the fall. It's the most wonderful time of the year for me.
I am a photographer, an Aggie, a wife, a mother, a preschool teacher, a runner (all of those in chronological order); lover of books, coffee, Mexican food, Hawaii, and Red Vines licorice (all of those not necessarily in that order).
