Lazy Day

I slept like a rock last night...only to wake up feeling like I hadn't slept at all. I hate that feeling. Jackson woke me about 7:40, he was knocking on his door. I love it! He gets up and out of bed and lightly knocks on his door until someone comes and lets him out. Then he walks down the hall yelling for Ella, goes potty, and then goes to the fridge for his milk. He wakes up in the best mood...no matter how I feel he makes me smile. So this morning when I wish I could have climbed back in bed, instead I got to snuggle in "the chair" and watch Imagination Movers with my buddy. It really doesn't get much better than that...well maybe Peter joining us BUT we would have to buy a bigger chair!
We have had a pretty lazy day. I needed to clean the bathrooms and mop the floors but I never made it to that. I did get the cookie bouquets delivered and the lasagna made to go in the oven for dinner. Let me just tell you that Peter is very excited to have Italian again! Well, actually he isn't. But I can't help it...that is all I want when I'm pregnant! I could eat Italian everyday, but for some reason Peter is sick of it! The other thing that I eat everyday- cereal! I'm consuming more milk right now than I think I ever have. I have 2-3 cups at breakfast and then a bowl of cereal and then sometimes before I go to bed I will have some more milk! Nuts!!!! That is what it is because normally I don't care for milk out of a glass...unless I'm having a big breakfast then I will drink some. Obviously, Karis needs calcium!
Anyway, I'm now sitting in the chair with my feet up watching this new show I have found called, Rachel Zoe. Yes, I'm being lazy and a part of me is feeling so guilty but the other part of me can't make myself get up and do something. So I continue to sit!
I was going to report that Peter said the boys are doing well with what was introduced yesterday. There is more to learn today so hopefully they will catch on quickly! Friday will be here before we know it!
Tomorrow Jackson and I will be in Abilene. I have PT for the first time in several weeks. I'm a little concerned with what she is going to say, but over all I have been feeling good. As long as I'm exercising and doing my stretches! So until another post...

Go Bucks!

Football started this past week! We began on Thursday night. Jackson and I didn't make it to the JV white game, but when we got there for the JV green game the stands were full of people! The boys were already out on the field and kick off started at 7:00! They did awesome...they played like athletes and it was a great victory. After the game it was so fun to watch the parents come and congratulate the players but also the coaches! I was also informed at the end of the game that there were more people there that night than there every was for a Varsity game...WOW! Sad and exciting all at the same time!
I was so anxious on Friday...the day seemed to creep by. Finally, we got in the car to head to the game. We had to stop for some food in Abilene and then of course I would take the road the wrong way to get to the game. So after turning around and retracing my path we were on the way...I was so mad at myself for normally I am not one to get turned around! We pulled up right at 7:30, there was a HUGE line to get into the stands and all I keep thinking was that I could not hold Jackson and stand in this line. Thank goodness since we had passes we got to go on in! We get around to our side of the stands and there are no seats...well I say no seats...we did find seats but we were packed in like sardines! It was so fun! The game was close, tied at half, and then in the 3rd quarter Jim Ned was up 13-7. Man it was intense. 4th quarter hit and we had to score! Let me just tell you that this is when I became of the most proud...it seemed like the other team just hit a wall. They were turning the ball over, not moving quickly, and then there are our bucks playing just as hard if not harder and driving this team into the ground! Whoever wants to argue that conditioning does not go hand in hand with football...well they would lose that argument after watching this! WE WON!!!! 35- 13...I think that was the final score!
It was amazing and such a blessing to watch the fans and the players as they had just won there first game of the season! Those boys have worked so hard and have come so far...and they wanted it so bad! I know that this is just the beginning and we have so much more to go, but it just blesses my heart that God is faithful in the little things. As the boys and coaches came off the field they seemed to be in shock. Peter just kept saying that I can't believe we beat them by that much...haha it was great!
So another week has begun and this game should be just as interesting as last week. The coaches have spent many hours already getting ready for this game and now it is the boys turn to practice hard! Praying against any pride that would make them fall, but for confidence and great attitudes!
I have been baking most of the day. I made banana bread this morning, had 6 bananas going bad and had to do something with them! Breakfast for Friday morning is made. I also worked on cookies for a couple of cookie bouquets, planning on taking those to the admin office and high school office tomorrow. Gotta gets those out there for people to see and hoping for orders soon! I hate starting from the beginning with the cookie business, I had just gotten things rolling in Belton before we left, but hopefully it won't take to long!
Jackson's potty training is going better than expected. He is wearing underwear when at home and diapers when we go out. As soon as we are out of these diapers we will move on to pull-ups. He is still having a few accidents during the day, but I never thought we would be doing this well by Sept. I think by December he will be a pro, just in time to start buying diapers for Karis! He is a busy boy! Always going and doing! He has started wanting to help me when I'm in the kitchen, he stands on the step stool and is my spoon licker...he can sure get those spoons clean when they come out of the batter! He is my joy! I'm so blessed to get to stay home with him!
Football updates to come!

Football Season!

Well, we have begun! Football 2010 has started...well it started on Monday. It has been an exciting week for all the coaches and players. The weather has stepped up to the plate as well, we really have had a mild summer so far BUT as soon as Monday got here we hit triple digits! It has been in the 100's everyday this week! But that hasn't stopped anyone, players and coaches have still been working hard. They are drained though when everything is over at the end of the day!
The coaches have been quite spoiled...they have had breakfast everyone morning this week. And I should add that it is a homemade breakfast. All the coaches wives have stepped it up and have been making breakfast. I do have to say we have great wives!!!! So far this week the coaches have had eggs and sausage twice, cinnamon rolls, kolaches, and something yummy this morning that I haven't heard about yet! And this will continue on through next week too...like I said SPOILED!
This morning is the first morning that the boys will put on pads. So of course Jackson and I have to go check it out! After there hard workout this morning they get to go to the city pool to do their conditioning and to cool down after their hard practice! Will have more to report on this matter later!
On a different note, if you have not heard The Medlock Family is having a girl! Karis Ann Medlock will be here sometime mid December. We are very excited and it will be here before we know it because of football season. I haven't really started planning to much for the nursery...I know the colors that I want to use but just have to find what I'm wanting. I'm not doing a theme like I did for Jackson, just pretty girly colors! Jackson is going to be a great big brother, although he has no idea what it going on. I ask him where the baby is and sometimes he pats my tummy and sometimes its a little higher up...if you know what I mean!
Well, it is a short blog but wanted to touch base. Have to go get us both dressed to head to the field.
Have a wonderful day!
