Football- Pre Season

Finally after tryouts, 5 practices every week for over a month, plays memorized, scrimage games held it is time, Football Season is going to start. The official pre-season game is here, the game where you get to play on the high school football field, here the game announced over the sound system, have your fans cheer you on up in the bleachers and the best thing show that other team what you are made of. Your a Football Player now, not just a boy wearing a helmet, cleats, pads, and a jersey but you are a Football Player. This day was all Mr. Football dreamed about and nothing, NOTHING was going to keep him from showing the other team what he was made of. This 9 year old boy who practiced until he was sore, stopped drinking pop and no candy, this boy who taught his mom all about the plays so that she would know what was going on, this boy who would play both sides of the line, going for touch downs and tackling the other team. He was ready and excited!!! Nothing would stop him, nothing................................................ but the Flu. The night before the big game Mr. Football and The Cheerleader both got the flu. (Side not: Wild Man had just gotten over it) He was up about every 45 min all through the night puking his guts out. ( I know that's what you want to mentally picture) When he wakes in the morning and gets suited up what do you say. As a mom your heart breaks because you know how hard he has worked for this day, you know how bad he wants that touch down and you know the team needs him. Dad, who is also the assistant coach offers a prayer and they are off. Grandma comes to the rescue for The Cheerleader and I take Wild Man to the high school.

After arriving I see my Mr. Football sitted on the bench where he can puke out of sight from his team. Tears are streaming down his cheeks. Coach who became just dad today out on the football field had to tell him there wouldn't be any touch downs today. My heart was sad for both of them but was also greatful for the dad to say no when the coach side wante to send him out there to play. There will be plenty more games to play and touchdowns will come. I am proud of my Little Man for suiting up and watcing his team beat Hunter.

I Love You Mr. Football!!!!!!! You will be Awesome this Football Season!!

The Wedding

Every bow tie wiggled in place, every dress zipped, every suspender snapped into place and every shoe fitted. The day finally arrived. My sister's wedding was perfect. The temple was amazing and wonderful and the party was awesome!! From the cold stone ice cream to the candy table to the cake, it was all her.

My sis and her hubby having fun at their party and what's a party without Pepsi!
The cheerleader and her cousins looking cute!

Mr. Football being cool with his cousin.

In all it was a perfect day for a perfect couple. We love you guys! Congrats!!

During the last year of my grandmothers life I would see her a lot. I was there every week to clean her house, take her grocery shopping and take her to her doctor appointments during that time I learned a lot from her. One of the things she told me about is when my dad was a little boy. She told me some funny story's about him. One of those story's was about her doing the laundry and always finding surprises in his pockets, once he had a whole handful of bees that he had caught and brought home to show her but had forgotten about. She found them! Just as I am sure anyone with boys knows when doing laundry there are always surprises. I have found rocks, money, rocks, trash I mean treasures that have been discovered somewhere, candy and rocks. Today I opened the washer to remove the cloths and I found legos, not just 2 or 3 but like 45 or 50 lego pieces. After laughing and collecting them. I ask "how did these get in the wash", the response, "that was my airplane, I was hiding it in the cloths. You washed it." Never thought I would find a whole load of legos. I guess they are nice and shiny now.

Schools in for a new year

School is Back in Session

Today was an exciting day but also a sad day for this mom. Mr. Football went to the fourth grade yesterday. Could I really be that old??? Is he really that old???? It is hard when my kids go to kindergarten but first grade is harder for me. Today my cheerleader left the car in the morning and didn't come back until after school. When did she grow up? When did they grow up. I sure love them a lot!! Now, Wild Man it is just me and you. (Wild Man looked around for the kids a lot today, I could tell he was missing them just as much as me)

Our Cheerleader ready for first grade.

Mr. Football heads to fourth grade

Where have we been????

Have you been wondering what happened to us????????? SUMMER!!!! The Johnson house enjoyed 9 weeks of summer. See some of the things we did. You might have to go into older post because we filled up the 9 weeks with swimming, lunch at the park, field trips, sleepovers, learning and more............. Check it out!

Wild Man cheered for everyone. Strike, gutterball or ball in the wrong lane, he cheered dis heart out. He loved it
When I told the Cheerleader to bring socks if she was wearing flip flops I thought she would put them in the diaper (you know it is where all the treasures go) but when we arrived this was the sight!!! Gotta love it.
