A Real Contender

Hello everyone! I am so frustrated that I haven't posted in a while. I just can't seem to get caught up on everything. And any down time that I seem to have, all I want to do is sleep! And the weather hasn't been helping. When it's cloudy and rainy it really makes me want to stay in bed! So, it's another busy sports season. I do love it all, though. Saturday we had a soccer game. It was our first real taste of what is to come. Our boys are playing an age level up so while this is their first year of playing on a full sized field and with 11 players, the other teams that we play are more experienced by at least a year. After saying all that, we won our game last Wednesday but lost quite badly on Saturday. At least they played the second half much better! The other team didn't score any on us in the second half! Today we had a double header flag football game. This is Nick's first year playing and he is quite an asset to the team! He is really good at running the ball and weaving and turning his hips so that the other team has a really hard time grabbing his flags! It's quite fun to watch! So that's been our routine around here lately. Like I said, I am loving the sports!

Today's card was a real contender for my swap card that is due this week. At the last minute I decided to go with a different design. I do have them ready to mail out tomorrow! I used a card from the current mini catalog to come up with this design. I do like how it turned out and I might use it for the cards that I am making for our school's silent auction next month. It's all pretty simple! I hope you all had a fabulous weekend! Take care and thanks for stopping by!
