This week

My aunt lives in Nashville, but she attended the University of Memphis for college several years ago.  She has not been to a U of M (Memphis State, as she calls it) game since she graduated.  She came in for a visit on a game weekend and we had the best time.  Go Tigers Go!

You may not know this, but my super human talent is that I can stand on my head, like forever.  My sister in law sent me a message and told me that she was working on her head stand.  (Why?  I have no idea.)  Just to mess with her, I sent a selfie of me in mid head the church nursery.  Yep, I sure did.  Sometimes you just have to stop what you're doing, go into an empty room, and rock a head stand. Good times.

Jack had a Colonial dress up day at school.  This was the best we could come up with.  Fred crafted that hat out of newspaper.  When I picked him up, that hat was in his backpack.  I asked him if he wore the hat and he told me he did not, because "all the other kids had on real hats and it was just embarrassing."  Well, without the hat he was just a kid in a blue dress shirt and some baseball pants, but whatever.  He got the extra score.  

Since the boys are back in school, Dash the dog has been living a life of leisure.  I mean, he sat like this for hours as I worked all around the house.  It's a hard knock life for Dash.  

Speaking of "hard knock life for Dash"...guess who ate Andrew's entire lunch while we were at church last week?  Dash broke the lunch bag and ate the entire contents.  I found a juice box upstairs before he finished up.  I guess he was saving the drink for last.  

Fred had a men's retreat with church on Friday night and Saturday morning so the boys and I endured three games.  It was a HOT morning.  After all the games we made our way home, headed to a wedding, and then headed to the Tigers game.  
Before we headed to the Tigers game and in between flag football and the wedding, Fred and I made Jack's 2 twin beds in to a one king bed.  Bless his heart.  The big guy has been sleeping on a twin bed.  We made several modifications to the beds and we have one very happy ten year old boy.  Now he has a bed that he can grow in to.

The Tigers had a great victory by winning 77 to 3.  Since the game started at 7:00 pm, we only stayed until half time.  We had a great crew at the game with us to cheer on the Tigers!

Someone was tuckered out after our long day.  That's one sweet exhausted fella. 

Aside from my head standing, I also love to clean out and organize.  I love it. My friend and I swap cleaning each other's houses.  Sometimes when it's her turn she has me help with an organization project, which I LOVE.  Here I am, knee deep in her cabinets.  It just doesn't get much better!

Today was See You At The Pole.  Since Fred is a pastor I thought he should represent our family with 6:15 am...around the flag Clayton's school.  This is the picture he got.  I'm not sure where Clayton is, but I can see that it's dark and it looks like everyone has had a donut.
