Just Three Weeks Away

I'm not sure if my mom is going to make it for three weeks waiting for us to come home. Chad and I are not sure if we will make it either, we are getting excited to go home for a break. I am actually looking forward to the cold weather. I know that you who are in the cold think I am crazy, but it is really hard to get into the Christmas spirit when it is still 75 degrees out. We are also looking forward to seeing everyone and getting to just hang out.

This past week has been fun with Jay and Jill being here. I think they enjoyed the time to just relax and not have to work. It seemed like we did a lot of just napping and talking and playing cards. But they seemed to enjoy it, so that is all that matters. We had lots of laughs and fun joking around with each other. Especially poking fun at Chad. (We all love him, but he just kept digging a deeper hole) Jay was my babysitter on hand for Monday's practice and Tuesday's game. By the end of the week he even had Maddie falling alseep for him, which is no easy task. I think Maddie was wondering where they went today when she got up and they were already on their plane to Minnesota.

Chad has just two weeks of classes and then one week of finals. He says that just having these two weeks of classes will make the next couple of weeks go by a lot quicker. We will be back to practice and games this week and for the next few weeks. Maddie is going to go into shock when having to go back to spending most of her afternoons and evenings at school. This week isn't too bad, I have two away games, but that just means that she will get to hang out with dad after his practices. The next two weeks are filled with games and then that last week before break is just practices since it is finals week with a game then on Friday afternoon.

We hope that you all enjoyed your Thanksgiving. We are thankful for all of you and can't wait to see most of you at Christmas.

And We're Off

Basketball started over 3 weeks ago and this week we have finaly started games. After our game last night, I think I would have likes another week of practice. I know the girls were ready to play and I was too a little bit, just so I could see where we are and what we need to work on. There were some stressful times in the game, but we came out with a win by 4 points. It would have been 6, but we let that last second shot go in, just so the game could be over. Definitely our posts are our strong point of the team and that is what we will be focusing on. I am looking forward to this team, they have some real potential and should be able to come out with some good games. They might be stressful games for me, but I know that they will be good. Chad starts games next week. He is now up to 5 guys, while football is getting ready for their play-off game this weekend. He is scheduled for game on Tuesday and they are still going to play. If football would lose, that would mean the rest of the team would have one day of practice and then a game. It could be a rough day for him next week.

Our time now seems to be taken over by basketball, but that is our life right now. Maddie seems to enjoy all the attention she gets from all the girls and parents when we are at school. She is adjusting to eating her dinner in her stroller instead of a high chair. As games get started we will be having Caitlyn babysit for her. Most game days one of us play at home and the other away, so Maddie will at least be at school with one of us.

Most of our free days are spent running errands or catching up on housework. There always seems to be something that needs to be done. We are starting to look forward to Christmas and our trip home. It seems like it is so far away, but it actually isn't that far at all. We'll be home in about 5 weeks. With everything going on now, I sometimes wonder where the week goes. We are also getting excited for Jay and Jill to come and visit. We can't believe that Jay will be here a week from Saturday. It seems like Thanksgiving is so far off, but it is just about 2 weeks away. Chad I know is looking forward to the end of the semester and being able to actually have a break from school.

Maddie is still growing everyday, but now it seems like it is more long that out, which is good. We will go to the doctor at the beginning of December. We are waiting to be able to wear all our cute "winter" clothes, but it is hard when it is still 85 degrees out. I think a front is coming later this week and so it is suppose to get down to about 70. Perfect fall weather huh?
