Life Lately {9.5.17}

We had a fairly busy 3 day weekend. I don’t think such a thing as a calm weekend exists in my household anymore. But it’s fun, so that’s what matters. At least that’s what I’m telling myself on a regular basis. But anyway, let’s take it back to last week. 

Tyler had to get a new helmet last week because his trainer discovered a giant crack down the side of his old one. And it was a new helmet this season! He took a few massive hits in the previous game that cracked his helmet. Yeah, that’s not concerning at all. So Wednesday night he and Matt had to adjust his new one, which is a bit tighter than his old one. Hopefully it keeps his brain safe.

The varsity game was moved to Thursday night last week because of the heavy rain expected from Harvey. It was still rainy and windy but nothing like the storms we got on Friday night so definitely a good call by the athletic director! Tyler had a great game- the whole team had a great game. We won 45-0 and most of the starters got to sit and watch the second and third string play for most of the 2nd half. It was weird to see them sitting on the bench watching but they also really encouraged and cheered on the younger guys so that was nice to see. The starters celebrated the 2nd and 3rd string players getting a touchdown as though they’d been on the field themselves, which was awesome!

Saturday had us making a trip to Sam’s Club. I’ve decided to go back to monthly trips to Sam’s Club. We spend too much when we go every other week and end up with stuff we don’t really need. Plus it’s time consuming and I’d rather only spend one Saturday afternoon there. The kids came along and ate lunch from the samples. I’m loving my grocery list app- it’s called List Ease and it gives me a confetti party when I complete my list. I feel appreciated.

Sunday had me taking Tyler to the sports med urgent care. He hurt his arm in the game on Thursday night and the trainer felt like it might be just a strained muscle. He also jammed 2 of his fingers on a helmet so they were swollen. His arm wasn’t any better after their practice on Saturday and his fingers started turning black and blue so the trainer had us go for xrays. Verdict- the arm is just a sprained muscle but he has a broken knuckle on his hand. So he has it taped and is just playing through the pain. The kid is tough. He also took a shot to his face in practice as you can see in the picture but at least he didn’t break his nose again. He’s going to be the death of me.

I didn’t even take any pictures on Monday. We grilled, hot tubbed, swam, and relaxed. It was amazing until Tyler had to go to practice. I’m so excited for a short week. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you that waking up at 5:30am might kill me. It’s already killing my soul.
