Our summer.....2010

Why I have not blogged in FOREVER?????

Well....here is just a smidgen of the activities we have had this summer!

WARNING: TONS of pics to follow!

For those of you that do not live in Texas.......let me remind you that FOOTBALL defines Texas! We are a little over-the-top with it here! And we LOVE it!

Reid has traveled all over the BIG state of TEXAS to attend Senior Football Camps!
We started out in Austin at.......UT!

Then onto Houston to Rice University!

Then onto Texas State!

and Kyle Field at Texas A&M!

Then we had some downtime at home for the 4th of July!
We went to church and then had friends and family over for the day! We cooked out and the kids did Fireworks that we had bought and we also were able to watch the awesome Fireworks Show that our town puts on.......and from our backyard!

Here is my festive dessert table.
My fresh flower arrangement.

Mom and Dad
Me and my Mad
Maddie and Liz
My Mom feeding Zoe
My mother in law....and Zoe making the rounds.
Another HAPPY 4th with the ones we love!

Then we were off to Cheer Camp! Maddie's team won the All Around Best Middle School Squad!!

We manage to squeeze in a sleep over my precious niece Hannah Mae!

Then back to some more football....Summer 7 on 7.

The boys after their last game
I am so gonna miss these days....

Last weekend Maddie's softball team competed in a HUGE National Tournament!
They had the opening festivities The Ballpark....where our Texas Rangers play!
My girl....

The Team....some were missing.

Maddie putting down a bunt...she can out run them every time!
Taking a break......

Between softball practice, summer athletic conditioning classes 3 days a week for both kids, Reid's football, multiple camps for both kids, a house full of teenage boys, and of coarse several full weekends of tournaments....this is one of the few summers we have not taken a trip! The summer has slipped away! Don't get me wrong....we have had down time and have gone swimming, movies, etc. But, I have not had any time to get any of my projects done around the house....BUMMER! I have enjoyed spending my days running my kids around and watching them play the sports they love. This is my last summer of doing this with Reid! This time next year he will be getting ready for college (frown). I am cherishing every last moment of this.....it goes by so fast!

Well, I have one more week of summer left before I go back to school. So, I am organizing, cleaning, and maybe going to get a few projects done this week (fingers crossed) before the upcoming school year (and madness) begins! We have NOTHING going on this weekend.....YAY!!
