Back on the Football Field

It's Sunday night.  We got in another quick shore weekend.  It was really cold though.  What happened to summer?  Back to last Saturday.  Actually this is only part of Saturday.  I went early to CVS and got a flu shot.  I wanted to get it in case there might be any shortages later.  Then we took all 4 kids to get theirs.  They all did pretty well except for Eli.  He was hysterical and he's still talking about it! We had to hold him down.  That's not fun.  Afterwards, we went to Learning Express to get them toys.  
They all wanted this Squishmallows.  Not really sure why.  
Yes, even Aden.  


It was a nice day for football!
Aden and the Lions were ready to go.  
Two of his buddies from school are on his team.  
These were taken from far away with a long lens.  Each kid is allowed one fan and they have to sit in the endzone with masks on.  


He looks so old!
Aden with Ben and Jack.  He's been with Jack since he was a baby.  

Got the plays on their sleeves.  
Run Aden!
They played well but lost.  
I drove Aden home then went to Ariel's football game.  There's our little cheerleader.  
She's got moves!
The boys were on the playground.  
I always find it amusing the cheerleaders have their own fans.

Fiona is the coach's daughter and the most talented.  
Ariel acting as a base!
Heading out to the middle of the field for the halftime show.  
Not sure if they will have a competition or not.

She loves it!  To be continued.

9-11 Memorial

 It's Thursday night.  The house is pretty clean and quiet.  I'm looking forward to a hopefully relaxing weekend.  I've been back the gym more this week and I'm so sore.  The last 6 months I exercised in my basement without weights so it's hard to adjust back to using them.  These are from last Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.  

This is my every morning around 6.  
The boys were practicing their Spooky Hallway building.  Are we going to have Halloween this year?  

Ariel had cheer that night.  
Aden had his first flag football practice.  The schools aren't allowing anyone to use their fields this year so we are now at Memorial Park next to the 9-11 Memorial.  I had never been there before.  
Great to see my quarterback back in action!
While they played, I wandered around.  Look at these houses!
Nice playground.  
Here is the actual memorial.  A piece of the World Trade Center.  I was here on 9-9 which made me really think.  


It was beautiful.   
I sat for a while and contemplated. 
Sunset over practice.  
Dropping the boys off Thursday morning.  I want to go in there so bad!
This was Ariel during gym class!  Lol.  

Picking up the boys from Crazy Cars.  


How crazy can we be?
Practice again.  Ariel has 3 practices a week plus the football games where she cheers.  
Sky was looking ominous.  
Ariel went back to Dori's after practice.  I got her late. 
Friday, Ariel was back in school with her cheer bow on.  
Recess!

At least 1 will pose.  
Changing the swings.  
The boys made these hats in school.  

Have a great weekend!
