Last weekend the family took off for Atlanta, GA to watch our oldest participate in the Publix Atlanta Soccer Cup. It is always fun to watch the team come together and as a bonus we get to enjoy the city of Atlanta! We were in the car quite a bit, sitting for watching games and waiting for meals. How did I ever manage to fill up all of this free time?
Free time, is a bit of an oxymoron. Don't you think? As mom our time is rarely free. And when it is we seem to 'pay' for it one way or another. OK. Rant over. Moving on.
This weekend as we traveled here and there I took with me a bit of hand work. This handwork was in the form of a cross stitch that I have been working on for the last 8 years. Sad, really. or Really sad. Take your pick.
Now it is back in the rotation. Hopefully this time I can get finished before tucking it away for another 8 years. HA! Since my sewing machine is once again being uncooperative, looks like this time it has a better chance.
Emma and I also got creative on the sidelines. Watching your brother play soccer can be boring. Watching your brother play 4 games of soccer can be insanely boring when you are 13. Thankfully she did a awesome job of entertaining herself, until she didn't. The last game we decided to paint her nails. Since she has been running Cross Country with the High School team this year, we drew up a little Wildcat inspired paint job.
