1st Flag Football Game

 John Curtis finally got to play his first flag football game Saturday.

Taylor didn't set out to be the coach, but they didn't have one and kept asking parents so he finally gave in.  It's been a good thing for my 2 guys to get to do together.
The most exciting thing is being on the team with his BFF, Connor!

Serious pregame huddle

Sophie cheering her brother on in her Colts shirt.  She was our score keeper even though we do NOT keep score in Upward.  We lost by a touchdown.
The boys get to run through a tunnel before the game.  JC said this is what made him the most nervous!
 JC isn't doing much in these videos because, well, JC didn't do much!  We're working on it!

Grandparents' Day Take 2!

Since my parents didn't get to come to Grandparents' Day they drove down last weekend to have lunch with the kids.

 They had a drawing at school and John Curtis won a bike!  Now to learn how to ride it!
 They came to watch JC's first football game but since it rained Thursday they called off Saturday's game.  I know, it didn't make any sense to me either!  Go figure.
Mom and I stayed busy on Saturday shopping downtown while Sophie was in Nutcracker tryouts.  She found out this week that she gets to be a gingerbread girl and a mouse.  She is super excited.  I told her the news by giving her a charm bracelet after school.
To fill up the rest of our free time we took these pics with an app on Mom's I Pad until we almost peed our pants.  We're a pretty impressive family!

Grandparents' Day!

G-Momma and Poppa came to see us this weekend for Grandparents' Day at the kids' school. 

 They had lunch with JC first.

 Then it was on to Sophie's room.
 Her class walked to the Farmer's Market Thursday morning to buy veggies.
 Then the made soup for the grandparents.
 They had a little presentation, too.
After school we all went downtown for Sophie's ballet class.  The boys went to the library and G-Momma and I slipped in to watch Sophie dance.  Then we stayed downtown for a yummy dinner at Bean on the Bayou.  Lots of shrimp!
 We hung out at the house for a while and then they took the kids back to their hotel to swim and spend the night.  Taylor and I enjoyed a quiet house!
Saturday morning was so nice!  I actually had to put on a sweater to sit on the porch.
 After lunch we were back at the hotel so the kids could swim while we watched the Aggie game compliments of Hampton Inn's ESPN.

 After dinner we played a huge game of Chinese Checkers.  It takes a while to play with 6 people!
We had a great weekend!  Thanks for coming, G-Momma and Poppa!
