Fall sports that is! While the games are great fun to watch, the practices were starting to take it's toll on me. With Jon, Tucker AND Tanner playing, it was a lot of work for dear old mom. Jon had football M-F with games on Thursday. Tucker and Tanner had practices on Thursdays with games on Saturdays. It was a tight, hectic, all over the place schedule for me but I did the best I could. I am SO glad it's over. I think they all had fun. I'm not sure if Tuck and Tan will play soccer again next year even though they seemed to enjoy it. They seem ambivalent about the whole thing. Oh well, I guess we don't need to discuss it now anyways. Jon probably won't play football next year. He had SO many injuries this year that he only got to play in ONE actual game. Luckily they do a 5th quarter where all the rest of the team gets a chance to play. I think it was a humbling experience for my boy who always wanted to go pro.
Me, I'm very much looking forward to lazy nights at home, curled up with my guys either playing a game (I've been stocking up on board games from thrift stores) or watching a good flick. I am already planning some fabulous family meals. It was next to impossible to sit down together with our previous schedule. Tucker and Tanner are still doing karate classes which was only adding to my stress level. It was just a bit too much all at once. Ahhh, to have a minute to breathe. How relaxing!
What about you and your family? Do you or your kids participate in sports? Are they over yet? Are you looking forward to the free time or are you signing them up for the next busy activity?
