Then, as a college student, Saturdays could be anything from a study day to watching movies all day with roommates to prepping for a dance that night.
As a newly wed, Saturdays were "Clean The Apartment" day. I remember I could clean our apartment top-to-bottom, with a lot of attention to detail, in two hours flat. I loved the feeling of sitting in a completely clean home. And, with no kids, it would stay that way well into the next week.
When motherhood came along and we had toddlers and babies, Saturdays were a family day where we usually stayed home and played with the kids and maybe ventured out in the evening to a kid-friendly restaurant, bed by 8:00pm.
Now that those kids have grown up considerably, Saturdays are spent watching them in their various activities-- and I wouldn't have it any other way. I love Saturdays at this point in our lives. I hear some people complain that their "entire Saturday is spent watching this sport and then running another kid to another venue for yet another game, blah blah blah..." I want to ask them what else they could possibly be wanting to do? What's better than watching your child perform in something he or she has been working hard at in practice? This is 80% the reason why I even had kids fhs.
This brings me to today.
Jbird's first football game of the season a.k.a. Heaven on Earth for this girl. ::pointing at self::
Running his route.
(can anyone tell from ^^^ what position that is??)
NON ACTION SHOTS!
Gettin' a pep talk from Dad.
I tried to refrain from telling him how freakin' adorable he looked in his uniform but was unsuccessful a couple of times. It couldn't be helped.
So excited for all my Saturdays through November (but sooooo sad we will miss next week's game. Grandma & Grandpa will be here though so that's good). TBone also started his first season of soccer! More on that later.
