Football, Football, Football, Baseball, and a little more...

Friday night - Trinity Trojans vs. Allen - Trinity wins 24-14...they are 3-0 this year and ranked #1 high school in the nation!!!
Saturday night - Texas Tech vs. Massachusetts - Texas Tech whoops up 56-14...4-0 this year. They are #10 in the BCS standings!!!
Sunday afternoon - Miami Dolphins vs. New England Patriots - Miami wins??? Yep - 38-13!! They are 1-2 this season. Hey - I can live with that. They won 3 of their 4 pre-season games, so I know there's hope out there!
My high school and college (both TT) are whoopin' up, so I'm in football heaven this weekend! :)
Way to go guys!!!

We had our first baseball game on Saturday morning. The kids did VERY well! You can tell that they have some experience now. We were proud of all of them! Everyone hit off the tee with ease.
The 2nd inning, one of the Dad's asked Jeremy to coach pitch to his son, and he missed all 3 pitches, so then he got to hit off the tee. This new league doesn't have outs, and we LOVE that. Then I told Jeremy to coach pitch to Jaydon, and our boy whacked that ball up and over to 3rd base. He's not the strongest swinger, but boy is he consistent! We are going to keep working with him so that he can differentiate between his golf swing, and his baseball swing. He's really into baseball this season for the first time, which makes us proud that he's finally "getting it". He used to hate defense, and now he's actually enjoying all parts of the game.

We went to eat lunch at Pizza Inn after the game. Jeremy loves that place because they have thin crust pizza. I'm a Chicago pizza girl - I LOVE thick crust. I have to compromise with him every now and then, so I just gave in to his Pizza Inn craving.
Jeremy and Jaydon went to the golf range on Saturday night - pretty late - to hit some golf balls. Jaydon loves doing that with his daddy, and I'm glad they get to. Jacoby and I hung out at home and we played Patty Cake, Peek a Boo, and we are trying to teach him where his nose, mouth and eyes are. That boy is something else...I sit him up on the counter while I fix his bottle. (With me standing RIGHT there with him - don't freak out you paranoid readers!) He will point to the bottle first, then I fill it with water. Then he beats on the formula like trying to tell me that it's next. Then he'll grab his cereal. He REALLY knows what order to make his bottle in. It's so cute!

Today was a relaxing day. I didn't leave the house once. I finished up a book I was reading called "Nineteen Minutes" by Jodi Piccoult. It was pretty good. She's a great author! Then I did 5 loads of laundry and cleaned up a bit. Jeremy and Jaydon went to lunch at Chili's, and then they mowed Aba's lawn. Jeremy hit up Kroger for our weekly groceries, and now we're watching the Cowboys game. Jeremy made some cheese dip, grilled shrimp, and buffalo wings as our football watching treats.

I have a sonogram on Tuesday at 1:40 to confirm the baby's gender, and to get some additional measurements. (Linder's, I will need to leave work by 1:15 on Tuesday - sorry!) Then on Wednesday, we have our ARD meeting at Jaydon's school at 2:30. The vice principal, his teacher, the Speech therapist, a guidance counselor, and Jeremy & I will be there. Good times!
I'll make sure to blog on Tuesday and Wednesday both to fill you in on what went on!

Oh yes - lastly, J3 (that's Jaydon) lost another tooth today. That makes loss #3 for the boy! He wants the tooth fairy to bring a toy and not money. He's too smart, isn't he? Jeremy lives to please his boys, so he said he would go to the store after the game was over to buy him something "small". Ya - we'll see what he comes back with. I told him it has to fit under his pillow. :)

That's it from here!
Talk to y'all in a few days...
