Welcome to my blog! I hope you enjoy reading about my busy life with my husband of 30 years and our four sons and daughter-in-law. We are now empty nesters and my blog is helping me through the journey. I love the Lord and I love my family. I also love to decorate and go to thrift stores!
Eric and I are die hard parents. We go to almost all the events that our kids do, rain or shine!
Well, this year we really lucked out with the weather during football season, but we're paying for it now during track season. Last Thursday we went to his track meet and it was raining cats and dogs! Here's poor Hayden running his race in the rain and getting drenched.
It was a miserable track meet.
I thought I dressed appropriately with sweater, jeans, coat, umbrella and boots, but I did not take into account that my boots are not waterproof! We walked all over the wet grass around the track and mud puddles, etc. My feet were completely soaked and freezing cold!
My toes were so cold! When we got back to the car I immediately took off my boots and socks, which were completley wet. I had a blanket in the car and put my feet as close to the car heater as I could get them.
My toes were still so cold and then I got this brilliant idea to put my gloves on my feet! Haha! It sure looks funny, but it worked! My feet finally warmed up. Sometimes the things I do crack me up.
It's just one of the many sacrifices that us moms will do for our kids! :0)
