Life Lately

LL1

Now that we’re back in a school year routine, I’m re-evaluating this little blog and what I want to write about each week. I’m changing some things up. I do better with a real writing routine and schedule so I’m going back to that. I want to share books I’m loving on a more regular basis. I want to share how I’m cutting our grocery budget way back. I want to share moments from our week. So look for some changes here soon. 

Tyler had his first home football game this last Friday. It was a great game and he played really well, although when he watched the film he picked his performance apart like a seasoned veteran. He started at both nose guard on defense and right tackle on offense. He held his blocks and made his tackles. We won 14-6 which was a great start to our season! A couple of talented parents were taking pictures down on the sidelines and sent me some amazing shots of Tyler.

Aren’t those great?! There are a couple that I want to have printed on a canvas to hang in a gallery wall. Poor Tyler had a rough practice yesterday. As hard as his coaches are on him, he’s harder on himself. It’s painful to sit back and see him reviewing game film and making notes of every thing he did wrong. Being a mom is hard, y’all. 

Yesterday we took the 3 younger kids up to my parents house in the mountains to see the solar eclipse. Tyler couldn’t miss school or football so a friend who is a teacher at the school took a picture of Tyler for me. We originally planned to go to Charleston, SC to meet up with Matt’s brother and his family but then we saw the traffic nightmare and changed plans. My parents were at 99.2% totality so we headed up there instead. The traffic was still intense. It took us 4 hours to get there and normally it would only take 2. Coming home was worse, the interstate was a parking lot. But it was worth it!

It was really fun and I’m so glad we went and made it a whole experience for the kids. Now we’re back to reality again today, getting up at 5:30am.
