5 Things Friday {8.11.17}


What a week! We are really ramping up for back to school around here. T-6 days. Stuff just got real. I always forget, or block out of my mind, how intense it is getting 4 kids ready for back to school. Haircuts, new shoes, school supplies, sports physicals….it’s a lot. And switching 3 to a new school this year just added to the insanity. I have a chronic eye twitch. 

1. We celebrated 21 years of marriage last Friday. We had plans to go out to dinner but things happened and life got in the way. So instead we took the little kids to Red Robin on Saturday to eat while Tyler was at a football pool party. Such is life with kids. No biggie. And seriously, the bottomless fries are my favorite. 


2. Tyler’s varsity football team had a rough week. It was the last week of practices before the scrimmage so it was 2-a-days all week. I took ice cream cups up there one afternoon after the second practice as a treat for the guys. They love me. The way to their hearts is food. Always. Ha!



3. Tyler made it into 2 different football previews for our region this week. He’s the one on the left hitting the sled in this picture. In the second article he is mentioned by name as an offensive and defensive standout for our whole conference! He is STOKED!! 


4. Maia had her second orthodontist appointment for braces this week. Right now she still has the separators in place. Hopefully next week she’ll progress to the actual braces. She’s thrilled. Obviously. I keep telling her, it will all be worth it…..in 3 years when she’s done. Ha! Poor girl. 


5. The football team got their jerseys. They have new ones for this season. They are skin tight. It was hysterically funny watching him try to get this jersey on and even funnier watching him take it off. It took all 3 of us to get it off! I don’t know how they’re going to do this after a game. 35 sweaty stinky guys pulling jerseys and pads off of each other? Gross. 


Our first scrimmage is tomorrow afternoon! I’m so excited! And then back to the real world of alarm clocks and homework. What a drag.
