the adventures of emily and william: single motherhood, student life, and southwest virginia. sometimes i write about politics, poetry, literature and love. occasional feminism.

Wow, we are so tired. Great Hokie village, great tailgate with DKE and an awesome Enter Sandman! LET’S GO HOKIES! #virginiatech #hokies #gameday

So #hokievillage is officially every Blacksburg mom’s favourite tailgate event for kids. #virginiatech wrestling slips and slides shirtless after sparring. Let me tell you, I wasn’t the only mom who gathered to watch this wonderful scene. Confused fathers everywhere. Very happy moms though. (at Lane Stadium)

Home from our first day of school! William says: “I’m just SO totally, exactly exhausted.” Me too, William. Me too.
My banging Saturday night
From the other day (before he fell asleep) ❀️
Pictures by William. He says we are pretending we are at the beach!
Waiting for our rental car at an auto shop; the mechanic went home for dinner (behind the auto shop) and his wife brought us apples from their orchard and an old fashioned, cold coke. For being broken down in southern Virginia, William and I are doing pretty good! This is after a man at the gas station enlisted the help of several people (who he obviously knew) to replace a broken tube on my radiator free of charge. I have no idea how I am going to pay all of this forward.  (at New Market Battlefield State Historical Park)
Back to Blacksburg, back to school (also broken down on the side of road).  (at Shenandoah Valley)
