I Hate Football Season

I'm still waiting on my husband.  It's 8:18pm.  Football practice ends at 6:30.  Also, the school is about 35-40 minutes away.

He has lock up duty again this week which means he has to stay until all of the kids are gone.  And a lot of these parents don't really care when they show up to pick up their kids.  Thanks a lot - so thoughtful of you.

I hate football season.
But next year, I can like it again.  Septtro has said this is his last year coaching.  I can't tell you how incredibly thankful I am to hear this.  Both of my girls have been born during football season (well, Kaylee was born a week before it started - Rilynn was born at the end of September).  We'd like to have more kids.  And I really don't want to be husbandless with a newborn again.  Plus, Ri asks where he is often now.  He's such a great dad.  And a great husband.  He's getting his masters to replace the football income.  

That's a big sacrifice for him.  He's not a fan of school.  And he's the greatest coach I know.  He loves football and those boys.  But he's stopping coaching for me - for his family.  

There's two more weeks of the regular season and possibly some post season playoffs depending on how they do. 

I can see the light.  

But right now, I still hate football season.

I've tried a new facial cleansing routine - the oil cleansing method.  I like it.

The weather has been much cooler.  If this were Spring - as my mom pointed out - everybody would be in their shorts and t-shirts.  But because everybody is ready for cooler, hot tea and blanket weather, we are donning sweatshirts and jeans. 

And boots.

I went to a sidewalk sale at a local grocery store.  They do it every other Saturday in their parking lot.  Tons of food and household products are set out in banana boxes.  Grab what you want, put back what you don't - repack your box and pay $8 a box. 
This was my loot from last Saturday - everything I got came out to 25 cents a piece.  It was my first time so I learned a few lessons I'll try next time but overall, I think I did pretty good.  :)
Oh, and this is my new favorite pictures of my Kay.  It's very her - sucking those fingers and clutching her beloved lovie.  

I'm so thankful my girls have cousins who live in town.  I love seeing them enjoy each other and become good buddies.  I thought it was funny I captured a picture of the two younger sucking their fingers and the two older ones sucking their thumbs.  :)

Ri, to my surprise and delight, ran the bases correctly and pretended to hit a ball.  I've heard there's a three year old t-ball program in town.  I think I may look into it.  
We have been spending A LOT more time outside - especially going on walks - and we may or may not break out in a sprint every now and then.

It just wouldn't be right to not cuddle in fuzzy, footie pjs now would it?  

Sisters.  I love that they will have each other growing up.

Ri is THREE!

I know I'm a bit late posting but last week was busy.  Ri's birthday was September 25th (last Tuesday) and Septtro's was September 28th (last Friday).    

I think this might have been the first birthday that I wasn't sad...sad that time was going too fast.  Instead of dwelling on how quickly she's growing up, I actually enjoyed what a fun, little girl she's becoming.

We went to the park and played with her cousins per her request.

snack time at the park - only time they were still
 On her actual birthday, we let her choose what to eat for breakfast, lunch and dinner.  Which included: monkey bread, McDonalds, and Chick fil a.  I got her a cupcake and she blew out her candles after eating dinner.
birthday breakfast, lunch, dinner

Of course, she had to have a Buzz-themed cake.

just look at how big she is!

my birthday girl

We had a party for her this past Saturday.  She got a lot of Toy Story themed toys and a big girl bike!  Now we just have to get her a helmet....and maybe a mouth guard so we don't lose any more teeth! :)
