Whew....slow down!!!

This week has seemed like a whirlwind. We're finally back in the groove of school. Along with that, comes lots of busy afternoons! I feel like we're hardly ever at home!

The boys have played just about every organized sport that they could have by now, football, t-ball, baseball, this year they're looking for something different. They both joined boyscouts this week, and they are super excited to jump right into that, but they also want to try bowling!!! Yep, we found out that there is a youth bowling league. Both the boys love to bowl and thought this would be perfect for them....that was until Hunter found out that they meet every Saturday morning at 9:00am for thirteen weeks!!! That boy likes to sleep in...I'm not sure if he's gonna give that up or not! The league starts next Saturday, so I told him that he had until then to decide if he wanted to play or not.

One night this week (not sure which one...they all have sorta run together this week!) we finally got Ty to ride his bike without the training wheels! Woo-Hoo!!! The boys play with the kids down the street just about everyday, and they all ride their bikes, except Ty. He usually rides on the handlebars of one of his friends' bikes. All I could think about was him falling off, so I told him he HAD to learn to ride his bike. So off the training wheels went, and there he went down the road (with a little help)! I can't believe I don't have a baby anymore!

Last night we took the boys and my brother to the football game in V-Town. There's nothing like the first highschool football game of the's so much fun! The boys are finally at an age where they love going and hanging out with their friends and watching the game. So now we can finally watch the game too and not worry about the boys!

Right before we left to go to the game, Ty discovered that he had a loose tooth! I don't think I have ever seen that kid so excited! He's been asking for the past year when he was going to loose a tooth..all of his friends have lost at least one tooth by now. Well, he wiggled and wiggled that tooth all night, and while we were at the game, he had his friend, Natalie, pull it. That's just one more thing to remind me that I don't have any babies anymore!

The boys had their friends stay the night with us last night after the game. So needless to say, I'm exhausted!!! I have swept my floor 4 times already today!!! They just keep going in and out and it's about to drive me crazy. I think the rain has finally stopped for the day, so they're going to have to keep it outside for now! :)

Just a little update....I went back to the weight management clinic this week for my four week check-up, and I've lost 17 lbs!!! Woo-Hoo!!! I guess this really is working...but after all, I haven't had a diet coke, cheese, or chocolate in 33 days as of today. It should be working!
