The Weekend Report


Well, it's come to this. My life now revolves around driving my kids to their multiple activities, and if I can get two hours of uninterrupted time at home I count myself lucky.

Friday, Saturday, and Sunday all involved at least 6 trips to either the school, town, a practice, a meeting, a sports clinic, a friend's house, or somewhere Kendall was babysitting. I barely had any time at all to get through the book and a half that I still managed to read! ;)

A few fun activities did get squeezed in though...

Friday night we found out Russ was voted the 1A Girls Basketball Coach of the Year for the State of Oregon. Huuuuge honor. HUGE. So there was nothing for it but to go get celebratory BBQ wings and milkshakes! I was so thrilled for this guy.

Saturday night, with Kendall at a friend's and Cooper at a Blazer game, we decided to take Blake out on a little date to a new Mexican restaurant in town, and when Russ asked if he could turn their big screen TV to the Blazer game, we were just in time to see Cooper and his friends on TV! Twice!

{The boys were very proud of the signs they made!}
Obviously, this eclipsed any previous highlight of Cooper's entire life and together, Cooper and Russell both floated on air the rest of the weekend :)

Sunday evening we visited some friends that just moved to our town and bought an amazing piece of property, and probably way overstayed our welcome because we were all... other people! Grownups to talk with! It was a lovely end to the weekend.

And now I'll just pretend I don't have 300 more places to drive my kids this week ;)


  1. I know the feeling...sometimes I have every good intention of staying home, but something usually comes up! Oh well , someday I will be sitting here bored longing for the good Ole days! !!! Congrats to Russ btw, that's awesome!!

    1. I should probably start telling myself that too, it's a good perspective to have! And thank you! I'll past that on to Russ!
