...and sleep for 6½ hours, just to do it all over again the next day!

Do you remember the Groundhog Day movie? THAT'S what I have felt like the past few days. I know that most people do the same routine daily, but I have gotten spoiled the last year with not having to work, and being able to do different things every day. I forgot how boring monotony can be!
Such is life though. I HAVE to work to help with the family finances. The boys HAVE to go to Aba's so that I can work. Jeremy has to work so we can survive.
One day, we will be able to do as we please.
For now though...this routine just has to work.

Jaydon wants to learn how to play the violin. Yes, we asked ourselves the same thing... "Jaydon - are you SERIOUS? THE VIOLIN???" We tried to convince him to pick another instrument, but his heart is set on the violin or the drums. We opted for the violin - for now. I have called 3 different music teachers this week and only heard back from one. I want to get a feel for all 3 before I just pick one. So this school year, he will be playing baseball at the YMCA, (we are coaching again this season) and he will be taking violin lessons. Jeremy and I both agree that 1 sport and a music lesson is perfect for a child his age. We HAVE to keep Jaydon's mind "working" because we have a feeling that Kindergarten may be just a little boring for him.

The Olympics have been awesome! I love the gymnastics, swimming, diving, & track & field (which hasn't started yet). I could live without the soccer, basketball, and volleyball. Those are sports that we can see whenever, so I'm not as interested in them during the Olympics. The men's swimming relay the other night had me screaming, and the gymnastics is just always really good!

Football season is about to start, and I'm VERY excited about that. Go Miami Dolphins and Texas Tech Red Raiders!!! My Raiders are ranked pretty high this year in the pre-season. It should be interesting to see how they do. For those of you who don't know, I am a DIE HARD football fan. I am almost as bad as a man...okay, I might be worse. I actually love a lot of sports, but football is my favorite to watch. Do NOT bother me during this time - especially if Texas Tech is playing!

Not much else to share. I need to post some pictures. I guess I should take some first. I will do that this weekend.

Talk to y'all later...

Oh, you're a Dolphin and Tech fan? I wasn't aware. We might have a problem...just kidding, nothing wrong with a little friendly competition! I am WAY worse than most men with football season! Go Cowboys and Longhorns!!

GO COWBOYS! We need to start those cheerleadering lessons. That might break up the monotony.

Monotony is no fun. Make the weekend a totally different experience, then it won't seem so bad. ha

Can't wait to hear Jaydon on the violin! I hear those orchestra people get pretty good money.
