It’s been pretty quiet on the home front this week. **knocks on large piece of wood** The kids finally had a full week of school and none of that stuff I dare speak of. If you are wondering what I am referring to, and missed week 2, please refer to it there. 😖
I have been in the kitchen a lot this week…well more then I am usually in the kitchen. I managed to use up all the ripened vegetables from the garden making a big batch of spaghetti sauce, salsa, and some yummy pasta salad.
I am happy to report that soccer is coming to a close for my little monster M this weekend and for little monster B next weekend. I am hoping to enjoy the break from the juggling of sports schedules for a minute before wrestling starts. Next year I will be juggling 3 different soccer schedules which my husband and I joked about just parking our camper in the parking lot at the sports complex and making a day of it. Now I am thinking maybe we weren’t joking after all.
I realized today that I have seen these 5 little boys go from a group of scatter brained kids on the field to now working as a team and actually making it an enjoyable game to watch. I hope that my son will have bonds with these kids throughout his life of growing up here in our small town. I give kudos to all who make it possible for these sports to continue on.
My son had a his first little school performance this week and I wasn’t able to get any pictures. Why you ask? Well they invited all family members for each student. This meant mothers, fathers, grandmas, grandpas, aunts, uncles, and siblings…all in one tiny classroom…along with the 23 students and 1 teacher. WITH NO AIR! I about died! Like seriously there was one point I thought I was going to pass out and hit the floor. My son’s skit was first. He was “Jack Be Nimble”. Just as I was about to stand up and start taking video someone’s child, that they weren’t paying any attention to, crawled right onto my feet and I couldn’t stand up. And I MISSED IT! To say I was upset is an understatement. I then shot the mother of said child a look…she still wasn’t paying attention! I didn’t want to pick the crawling toddler up for fear he may start screaming. Not to mention I was holding my professional camera and there was nowhere to set it down. So I got literally one picture of my son at the end before we left. 😁
He did such a great job though and I have come to the realization that my son is not shy what…so…ever. I love to see how genuinely concerned him and his peers are about one another at this age. So much innocence. His teacher did a wonderful job of pulling it all together. She has her hands full with 23 students in her class.
I have a day filled with soccer and halloween decor today. I can’t believe it’s the middle of the month already and I haven’t gotten out a single decoration. Nor have I bought any to add to our collection. Guess I will be hitting the clearance racks to find stuff to store away for next year. If you would like to see our decor from last year click here.
Hope you all have a fantastic week!
