Reformed Grits


Ahhhh soccer reprieve

Today was our first weekend since I can remember without soccer!  Hooray!  We love soccer but were really ready for our lives to not revolve around it. 

Mr. Grits and I slept in, and enjoyed a leisurely morning.  Around 11 we went out to plant the bulbs of my granddaddy’s that we dug up from our old house before we moved.  I don’t know if any of them were actually viable but we will know in the spring.   He then went on to do a little yard work while I really did nothing of much consequence in the house. 

At 3:30 we went to our school’s Fall Festival and really had a great time.  I was thankful that we didn’t spring for the $20 armbands as most of my kids had more than enough with their $5 cards (the little ones especially) and the older ones pitched in $5 of their own to get a $10 card which totally was enough (JD actually had some punches left.)  Jojo ran around playing with the kids his age and really didn’t need much at all.  He waited it out til the end when they were GIVING the candy away!  Everyone had a good time, including Mr. Grits and I as we got to fellowship with friends. 

We came home; the little ones got baths, and I made a late dinner.  Now we are just sitting back and relaxing for a change (I take that back; Mr. Grits is studying for his Monday midterm.) 

I have another sinus headache so I am on my way to bed.  Hope y’all are enjoying your weekend as much as we are!

My girls had fun at the festival too. We used a 10.00 and a 5.00 punch, and it was plenty. We even managed to make it through the entire festival without getting one piece of candy!!! Truly a miracle. They did get a cute little heart/flower balloon made by the clowns. I’m sure they will pop later today and we will have some tears. It’s inevitable!

We were also glad to see soccer season come to an end, though ours was last weekend. It was nice to not have an 8:30 am game to get up for. 🙂 Glad to hear you all had fun at the school!!!

Mine had fun at the Fall Festival, too. Hays thought the Titanic slide was the best. I’m sure whoever worked it thought he was going to wear the seat out of his jeans!!

Sounds like we missed all the fun. I thought Brooke may enjoy it more next year.
BTW, where is your computer? I’m wishing mine was in the living room lately.

I can totally relate to the ending of some sports in our family. We just finished up flag football and cheerleading. I still have one in soccer but the coach has stopped practices because of Daylight savings time. So yippee!!
