Our weekends are nuts. Some weekends are worse than others. This past weekend was especially busy and tiring. I know this isn't just our family. Everyone I know is busy and feels busier than ever. As my wise friend said last week, she thinks being a mom to active kids is way harder than being a mom to a toddler. I totally agree. This isn't me complaining either. It is just a reminder for that time when I miss the busyness. My four kiddos keep our weekends so completely full that I now love Monday.
On Saturday Emma had regional orchestra try-outs. She was there from 8:30-1p. I was secretly hoping she wouldn't make it because I was pretty positive I would break in half if one more thing was added to our schedule. Thank you for an answered prayer because she didn't make it. I'm horrible right? She wasn't sad about it so that made me feel a less guilty for how I felt.
Samuel had to be at the football field at 9:30 for his 10am game. After the game ended, we ate lunch, and picked up Emma it was time for Elena's soccer game at 2p. Drew took the boys to Rice for a baseball game and some daddy-boy time downtown. They loved it. I had girl duty which meant go to the soccer game. Get Emma to her sleepover. Shop for a birthday party present that had yet to be purchased and wrapped. I know that gift bags were invented for busy moms not wrapping challenged people. Clean up after the soccer game and go to a birthday party at 5:30p. I was so glad someone else was making us dinner!! After everyone was finally in bed and asleep it was after 9p and I had only watched about 30 minutes of college football all day. To me this is a tragedy because I LOVE college football. Stupid PSU!
|The game ended in a tie. Samuel had a pick 6! One of the most exciting moments of our weekend!|
|Elena is really timid on the field and is still trying to figure it all out, but she is having fun!|
|My serious dudes at the Japanese Gardens|
|It was a glorious 55 when I started my run. I loved being chilly!|
|NCL was a skincare and make-up lesson at Clinique. She looks so grown up!|
|His last baseball academy!|
