UNC vs San Diego State


Had to go to the UNC-SDSU game to see the stripe out! Night games at Kenan are just so gorgeous – there is no place more beautiful for college football. My dad showed up and hung out for most of the game which was a nice gift too.

Early on…

Everyone in their seats…

Heels pull out the win at the last second

UNC Football ladies clinic


We went to the UNC Football ladies clinic again and Hayley brought her friend Taeylor. Really fun night with lots of interesting speakers, great food and a behind the scenes view of things.

They were happy to see Coach Fedora again …

… but the real highlight was seeing Caleb Pressley**

UNC vs Duke – Hayley’s last ballkid assignment


After seven great years, Hayley’s run as a ballkid has come to an end. NCAA rules prohibit high school kids from being ballkids so her last game this season is the final home game of the year, UNC vs Duke. Hayley is so lucky to have had this opportunity and we send out huge thanks to Coach Sylvia Hatchell, Coach Tracey Williams-Johnson, Jane High who works in administration and all the players over the years who were so kind to our kiddo. Coach Williams-Johnson always took extra care with Hayley, often bringing her back to the locker room with her after big wins. Hayley has years of UNC autographed shoes, all done in the locker room after those games. We’ll keep those forever!

Hello Spring!


We had a great lowkey Easter at home. Hayley said she figured she was too old for an Easter basket but she’ll never be took old in my book.

Then we headed to the beach with my Mom, Stepdad and Aunt Cathie. It really was a wonderful trip. we got a fantastic beach house and just relaxed! Hayley spend an afternoon as an aquarium assistant down at the NC Aquarium, helping with feeding.

To round out our welcome to spring, we hit the UNC spring football game, a post-game party called The Bash and then back to campus for the 35th anniversary show of the Clef Hangers. We had our neighbors with us and for most of the day, the two kids Hayley babysits. Long but great day!
