Everyday Recap-12 on the 12th Edition

Hey, Hey Tuesday!

I have TWELVE photos for you today recapping a bit of our everyday life…

#1  This girl rocked third grade and is looking forward to fourth!

#2  Nixon had an awesome year as well (and he ended the year on his fourth teacher…EEK!).  To say Britt Slaughter has him wrapped around her little finger, is the biggest understatement.  He’s putty in her teeny, tiny fingers.

 #3  What a difference a year makes.  The photo on the left was the beginning of second and third grades and the photo on the right was the last day of second and third grade.  They grew up on me!

#4  Bowen had his first soccer game EVER on Saturday morning.  Soccer mom FAIL…I forgot a couple things prior to the first game.

*This particular program requires ID badges be made.  In order for your kiddo to get an ID badge, you must show their birth certificate or passport.  The program was only open in the afternoon and with last week being the last week of school it was chaos.  I just completely forgot!  Bowen requested Dad to see his first game, so I went to Nixon’s game and Tab joined Bowen.  I told Tab he’d have to go early to get that badge.  He left our house at 7:00 a.m. on Saturday to make it in plenty of time.  But guess what I forgot to send with him?  ANY IDENTIFICATION!  He called me at the ball field just a teensy upset (being a bit sarcastic here :)) that Bowen wasn’t gonna get to play because of the missing ID.  And friends, let me tell you…the clouds parted and I remembered Bowen’s birth certificate was STILL IN MY CAR from kindergarten registration.  I texted it right over and it WORKED!  Bowen got to play in his first soccer game!  WHEW!

*I also forgot to get him soccer socks AND shin guards.  Luckily, another friend had an extra pair on Saturday.  His little soccer outfit was looking a bit off with those socks.

 #5  Bowen was SO pumped about his first game!

 #6  He scored the first goal!  Tab said that every time he kicked it he kicked it as hard as he possibly could, which I don’t think is the goal.  And the Lions won!  Thanks to a couple kids I heard were CRAZY fast on our team!  GO Lions!

#7  After all the games on Saturday, we enjoyed an evening pool side.  (With Tab’s Guacamole, of course.  I told you it’s a summer essential.)

#8  On Sunday, Bowen and Tab did a little fishing.

#9  And Bowen caught dinner!  (Except that would not be nearly enough for this family of six.)

#10  Sorry, for ALL the pictures of B, but can you tell by his face how pumped he was?!

#11  Sunday evening, I attended a girls’ event so Tab took our crew over to hang with the Shulls.  Britty got NO attention.  Can you tell?  πŸ˜‰

#12  My girlfriend, Meagan, sent me this graphic and it couldn’t be more true!  Anyone else agree?

And that sums up my twelve little peeks into our life.  Hope you have a great day!

    Girl, you are taking a page out of my book with that mom fail!! Hahaha! So glad it worked out! And WHO cleans, folds and puts away laundry all on the same day? Is that even possible??? I'm lucky if I get laundry put away once a week. They can just come get the clean stuff out of the laundry room. πŸ˜‰
