There's Something About: Getting Back To It

Ok, I'm putting it out there. I feel like I've been "gone" forever, but it's really only been a few weeks and that's really not that long. But here I am to say, "I'm gonna get back to it!" I mean, people are still checking out my blog, so I wanna give you all something new to see!

School started a few weeks ago.

And after school starts, then all the extra-curricular stuff starts, too. Who knew two little kids could be so busy?? (Yes, I know I have three kids, but the big one isn't doing much that requires mom's taxi.)

Almost a year ago, when I started this blog, I wrote about how busy we were. And that's when the Major was on deployment! It's crazy, but I feel like we're busier this year. And it's only going to get worse next week.

Let me share with you what our typical week looks like right now.

Mondays, Tink has dance:

Stretching in hip hop class.

Tuesdays, Tink has cheer and Lightning has football:

Look at that game face!

Wednesdays, Buzz and Lightning have Royal Rangers, and Tink has Girl's Club, both at church.

Thursdays, cheer and football practices again.

Tumbling at cheer practice.

Fridays, Buzz has youth group.

Saturdays are Lightning's football games. And Sundays, we go to church.

Next week, we add chorus on Tuesdays. And a few weeks after that Tink's cheer competitions will start and those could be Saturdays and/or Sundays.

I've always kind of been of the opinion that each kid only needs one sport per season. But somehow, with dance, it's kind of an all year thing, but classes are only once a week. And cheer and football should both be done by mid-November. So, this crazy schedule should calm down in a couple of months.

And then the holidays will be a breeze, right??

There's Something About: Sunday Social - Week 65

I know it's not Sunday, but at least I'm getting them done. Summertime questions.

Sunday Social

1. What was your favorite trip/vacation/activity this summer?
My favorite activity would have to be the mud run I did a few weeks ago. I had a great time! You can read all about it here.

2. What was your favorite outfit look/clothing item of the summer?
Shorts and a tank top! I'm a Cali girl so I love summer clothes and I am none too happy that it's starting to cool down a little here in NY.

3. What is one thing you wish you'd gotten to do this summer?

I wish we could've taken a nice family vacation. It didn't happen, but I'm actually hoping we can maybe take a little road trip to D.C. with the kids this month or next.

4. What was your favorite song of the summer?

Pink with Nate Russ on "Just Give Me A Reason". 

5. What was your favorite movie/tv show of the summer?
I discovered Duck Dynasty this summer and we love it! If you haven't seen it, you have to check it out. Uncle Si is hilarious!
