What's been going on?!

I ran into one of my loyal readers (there's only about 3 total!) in Longview yesterday and she expressed some disappointment in the lack of recent posts. Carolyn, this is for you!

The start of school has kept us busy and we feel blessed to have so much going on. However, it leaves little time for documenting our lives. Hopefully I will find balance soon...
This is Zachary's first year to play flag football. His team, the Jets, had their first game last Saturday. I don't think they moved the ball an inch down the field during the entire game. Oh well, we are just learning the basic principles, right?!

Zachary is in the middle of that pile somewhere...he is on the green team and he is kneeling--if that helps locate him. Daddy is on the sideline in all black.This little boy, Coen, was serious about the blocking. During this play, they were on about the opposite 30 yard line and his team had already scored. The play was dead when I took the picture. He wasn't letting up though....Trace and Trent cheered Zachary on during his game

During the week before Grandparent's Day both of the boys' schools had a Grandparent Breakfast. I didn't take a single picture at Trent's. Ugh! Grandmother (my mom) spoke to Trent's classmates about why he is special. I don't know what all she said, but Trent told me that she did 'very good'.

This is a picture of our group at Zachary's special breakfast. Three grandmothers and a grandfather. I hope he someday realizes how blessed he is!!Emma ate breakfast with us too.Of course, Trent was hogging PawPaw the whole time.I let my little-est person stay home with me today. He just needed a little extra mommy time. We met my mom for lunch and enjoyed the day doing NOTHING!

Isn't he the cutest little thing?!

At lunch, he was picking the pepperonis off his pizza. My mom asked him, "Do you not like those round things on your pizza."

Trent answered, "They are pepperonis, Grandmaw. That's what they are called. Pepperonis."

I told her that we had been cleaning out our car. He added, "Because we were over it!"

Cancer Crusade this weekend. Looking forward to another great event. Praying for a break in the rain!!!!
