I honestly LOVE this time of year! Finally my Sundays are back to hanging out and watching football all afternoon. I am probably one of the few women who enjoy football season. But it allows me to bond with my son who is obsessed with the sport. His sisters know that Sundays this is what we do and they are good sports about it since he does tend to get the short end of the stick more than they do.
Hunter has started his own football season again and it always amazes me how a child’s mood can completely change when they are doing what they love to do. I see it with all of my children. I enjoy seeing the spark in their eyes and how excited they get to be back into their thing. I ask them every single time after a practice, class, game, etc “Are you having fun?” and once the answer is no, it is time to rethink their choices. So for this point in time all answers are yes which means for this moment in time all is right in their world. Now this can all change tomorrow but for now it is all good.
Our weekend will consist of all things football with the kick off of Hunter’s season with a scrimmage or a “preseason game” as he refers to it. Then it will cap off with watching our family’s team~ the Steelers on Sunday. And the countdown has begun to an unexpected special Mom and Son weekend at the end of the month. After many months, I was able to get 2 tickets to a Steelers home game and him and I will be heading to Heinz Field!!! I think I am more excited than he is to get some time away with just him.
Happy Kick-Off Weekend and our family hopes your family’s team has a great opening game unless you are a Browns fan….hehehe!
