35 MINUTES YA'LL
As the minutes ticked away I was yelling instructions to the boys and they were actually doing what I was telling them to do. All the while they are debating what they are going to ask him about in regards to football.
Right about now I should tell ya'll why he was coming over, as we are not the kind of folks that would be entertaining SEC royalty! Honey's brother graphs Japanese Maples which Coach Dye adores! We have one of Brother's trees and while it is a nice tree I have always wanted a shade tree in that spot. So Coach Dye wants our tree and that is why he came for a visit!
While trying not to be too obvious I was snapping pics like crazy. The boys made one attempt to talk football with one of the best coaches of all time but, he was quick to tell them that he doesn't coach anymore...he is into landscaping! I don't even think they were disappointed as we were all just living in the moment that he was actually standing in our back yard! He was happy to take pics with both boys.
He had lots of ideas for our backyard. There is a good reason ya'll have not ever seen much of it as it is really just an ignored space for us! But come this winter that will all change!
As I wrap up this blog post only one phrase truly fits this moment in our lives.
