Gymnastics Showcase – #31

First off, I want to say I made it to 31. I didn’t think it was possible. Yeah me! Celebrate the little things right!!

Today was a busy day. I didn’t sleep well and when I did finally fall asleep Ryan woke me up an hour later freaking out because he thought he had poison. It was just a bug bite.


Anna was the star of the show today. She had a soccer game and her gymnastics showcase. Her head was not in the game at soccer. In fact, most girls were not in the game. It has been a strange season. Yesterday is was 90 degrees and today we barely made 60. Man it was cold and windy out there.

After that we immediately went to Anna’s Gymnastics Showcase. We have never been to one of these shows. It was crazy. Things are happening everywhere. It was difficult to keep my mind focused on Anna. She was amazing though!! I have not seen what she has learned. I usually drop off and my friend picks her up. I was so proud of her and how far she has come.


The show was at noon and went an hour and an half. We were so hungry by the end. We went out for lunch. While we were at lunch we decided that we should go see the new Diary movie. So we went home changed cloths and went to the movies. So Funny!! I laughed and laughed!!

Until tomorrow…

Night Games – #30

Well I talked to a friend today and she had some good advice. I took the advice and used it with Ryan. He seemed to better understand the point we are trying to make. And though he is upset about his discipline, he seems to understand why.

That evening he had a soccer game. They did Awesome!!  What a wonderful way to end a hard week. It was still hot but at least we had a nice breeze, a beautiful sunset, and a lot of fun cheering on the boys.

Until tomorrow…

Game Day – #3

Today is what we, in our house, call Game Day. We get up early, eat breakfast, rush off to our first game, two of us leave halfway thru to get to the other blonde’s game, and after Ryan’s is finished we head over to other game. I love game days. I hate the morning rush but I love to watch them play.

I get to let my children have experiences that I never had. It makes me happy to watch them succeed! I get to be their cheerleader and guide them. I get to hold them when they get hurt, cheer with them when they win, and be upset with them when they lose.

Today, Ryan’s team won! Ryan had 2 assists and he was so excited to be out on that field. I love to see him play so well and enjoy a sport. Anna’s team lost, but this was their first game of the season they are still getting used to playing together.

Otherwise today was a rainy day. I don’t think I would have left the house if it wasn’t for the games. Chris and I ran to Lowe’s to get a new grill. Our grill has been slowly falling apart over the years and when I came home a special surprise was at my door.


I was so excited that my bag from Magnolia Market showed up. I cannot wait to use it. It is absolutely gorgeous! Joanna has amazing taste.The packaging had that beautiful tulip with it. I think I even sniffed it (I thought it was real!).

Until tomorrow…
