Friday nights this time of year means football around here.  So just about any Friday night you can find us at one of our local schools cheering on the teams.  The kids love football games mostly because of the band and the concession stands!

My life right now...

        • Hectic
        • Exhausting
        • Unbalanced
        • Fun
        • Early mornings/late nights
        • Less time with family
        • Crazy
        • Always playing catch-up
        • Homework/reading/spelling tests
        • Less sleep than I would like
        • Full of volleyball
        • Grades/Lesson Plans
        • Dance/Flag football/baseball
        • Rewarding
This picture really doesn't seem all that special.  But to me it is. You see from June to October every year for the past 11 years my life is always a little out of the ordinary.  At the moment this picture was taken I was beyond frustrated with my team but was snapped back to reality when my 3 year old daughter ran in from her ballet class to give me a big hug.  It was so precious.  And I have to admit... she gives the best hugs... a big tight squeeze every time. It was just what I needed. A big thank you goes out to my family and friends for all the help on game nights, practices and all the in between!

Slumber Party!

This weekend the kids were thrilled to have Madison spend the night with us! Lots of dress up from the girls, playing outside on the playground, some Wii games, playtime in the fort, early morning Waffle House followed by trip to park all added up to lots of fun for these kids.

Fall is coming fast...

The temps here this week are definitely beginning to feel like my favorite time of year... Fall! It has been so nice and cool in the mornings and evenings.  Definitely makes those long days in the gym for games so much nicer. Fall also means football!  RJ has started flag football this year for the first time.  He's learning more and more every day but at least he knows the biggest thing - get the flag!! He's pretty quick and likes to run (yay... for me, I can't wait to go on runs with him) so he likes chasing around other boys trying to get that flag.  Special thanks to Amy for taking the pics for me while I was coaching a volleyball match.

Happy Birthday!

Tuesday was officially the big day for Roby - the big 36!! We celebrated dinner on Sunday night with a big group of family and friends at Fuji, our local japanese steakhouse. It was a fun night. The kids even learned to use chopsticks.  Happy Birthday to my wonderful husband! We love you!

We have fish!

We are now proud pet owners! RJ has been on a kick that he wanted a pet, and I mean relentlessly asking about a pet.  We've been through the dog thing... not again. So after such a great start to 1st grade we decided on a fish tank. We have always talked about wanting one in our house so this was the perfect time.
It really is pretty to look at... and soothing, especially at night.  We have added our first four fish after waiting three days to make sure the water was just right.  The kids picked out the fish and were so excited about it!
Our fish: 2 silver-tipped sharks, 1 angelfish, and 1 silver dollar fish.
