Needed Reprieve

Isn't he precious?!? He melts my heart.

This weekend was a much needed reprieve from a busy, hectic week!
Preston left town Friday after work so that made me a single mom for a busy but fun Saturday. Kids sports are in full swing and we started the day with Will's soccer game. He absolutely loves playing and is so fun to watch. He has such joy in his face the whole time he's playing, such a nice change to the competitive sports the older kids play now. Then it was off to Jake's football game and it was tough to watch by myself. I was a nervous wreck the whole time. I did not like being there without P, it seemed like all the pressure was on me for some strange reason. They ended up winning and everything was fine. Praise the Lord!
I've spent the evening organizing all of my Thirty-One stuff so I can get a few parties started. I'm really excited about all of this--which is way out of my box.
I can't wait for tomorrow. Sunday's are my favorite day of the week!
Below are a few pics from this weekend and last of the kids playing football, volleyball, and soccer.

The last several months have been a whirlwind. I got on the computer tonight for the first time in a long time, (who needs computers when I can do almost anything from my phone!), and clicked on over here to my little family blog. I'm sad when I think back because I've lost almost a year of memories being recorded. It's made me realize why I blog, I do it for me so I can have this virtual scrapbook-it's a bonus that our family gets to visit too. I seldom take pictures because I don't do anything with them, unless I post them. So now that I've lost 8 months documenting my precious babies' lives, I am committed more than ever to start back again, because I don't ever want a day to come where I can't remember what they were like as little kids. Before I know it, they will be grown and moved away.
