Are you ready for some football?!

Football season is rolling around again in our house. Today kicks off the first day of official practice. My oldest is playing Football, and my oldest daughter is doing Cheerleading. August is a busy month for football. It's 5 day a week practices! That's right, 5 days a week, Mon-Fri from 5:30-7:30. That's a lot of late night dinners! But I definitely get my monies worth out of my crock pot!

This year my hubby is going to be an assistant coach for Austin's team 8) He L-O-V-E-S football. Hopefully this means some good father-son bonding time for them. And just maybe, this year will teach Austin a bit of discipline....I can hope, right?

Of course, along with football season for the kids comes a cruel joke for mommy. I am a die hard Dallas Cowboys fan. I can NOT stand the Washington Redskins. So of course, my son's team is the Redskins. The PASS Redskins, but still the Redskins. So now I have to cheer for the Redskins and wear shirts that say Redskins on them. A sad time in deed LOL. But I will do it for my kiddos 8)

Are your kids involved in any sports, or anything athletic?


  1. awww how cute! i don't have any kids yet, but my hubby is in a basketball league and we looove to watch college/pro football! yay for football season!

  2. Okay so "anonymous" is me, Mel, because it still won't let me post as me.

    What I had said was that Mimi is doing soccer this year-she is playing Rec League, wants to try out for the high school team, and doing band and colorguard. I don't know where she thinks she will have time for all of that mess, including keeping her grades up (because she is delusional that high school will be just like middle school was-and again, won't listen, but that's another story). She also has to take better care of herself than the average bear because of the diabetes. So we'll see.
