School, Volleyball, and Soccer! Oh My!!

Tis the season of busy here.
Back to school is often scary because of the unknowns.
Teachers, new classes, who to sit by at lunch, etc.
The list could go on and on.
This school year is off to a great start.
I've heard very little complaint.

I'm always excited for the fall sports season.
This year is no different. 
The soccer team is doing well. 
The volleyball team has done great.
So far, there has been a lot of homework,
And I wish I had more time to just sit and visit with them.
They will be grown and gone from this house before I know it.

I am so proud of them.  
They work together on homework. 
They help each other.
They encourage each other.
They cheer each other on.
I must be the most blessed momma in the world! 

It is the season of busy, but I'm not complaining.
One day very soon, I will be cleaning and cooking for only two people.
I know my days of running around chasing them are numbered.
Although packed with activity and many miles on my car, 
These days are delicious!
Enjoy your blessings today, friends.

Grandparents are a special group of  people.
I have very fond childhood memories with some of my grandparents.
I have only a few memories with others. 
I think that my kids are pretty fortunate to have a set of grandparents near us.
The kids are supported by them.
They are SPOILED by them.
They are taught by them.
...but most of all,
they are befriended by them.
The kids get excited about going to visit.
They are elated when we get together!
They share stories of their day, week, or current sporting event.
They talk about trips they want to take with their grandparents.
They eat the ice cream from the freezer or the cookies from the counter.
I think these are memories the kids will keep forever.
I know that I will forevcer be grateful for the opportunity to watch their relationships grow.
I appreciate their time together.
I watch them in awe,
and pray that I will be a good Grandma when it's my turn.
(in 20 years, of course)
I want to have the patience.
I want to spoil them.
I want to let them break the rules and then laugh when Momma finds out.
I want to be the cool one,
because let's face it....
We ALL know that
Grandparents are WAY cooler than parents!
Grandparents are delicious!

I love Christmas Eve when the house is quiet and there is nothing left to do but wait for Santa and Christmas morning to arrive!
